Falmouth University and Akari Software are committed to making their software and software outputs accessible for people with disabilities, following the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1.

This accessibility statement applies specifically to Falmouth University, Courses and Modules Website (https://falmouth.akarisoftware.com/)

Compliance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) efines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of compliance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA.

  • Falmouth University, Courses and Modules Website (https://falmouth.akarisoftware.com/) is fully compliant with WCAG 2.1 at a level of A.
  • Falmouth University, Courses and Modules Website (https://falmouth.akarisoftware.com/) is partially compliant with WCAG 2.1 at a level of AA due to a number of issues that are currently in development and a full compliance is projected by the end of the current year (2020).
  • PDF outputs from the Falmouth University, Courses and Modules Website (https://falmouth.akarisoftware.com/) are partially compliant with WCAG 2.1 at a level of A, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible:

PDF outputs from the Falmouth University, Courses and Modules Website (https://falmouth.akarisoftware.com/) are only partially accessible for visually impaired users that utilise screen readers due to reading order issues encountered in the generation of the PDF file. We are actively working to improve this aspect.

We aim to improve our accessibility on a regular and continuous basis. We are currently working on making the non-accessible content, as outlined above, compliant with WCAG 2.1. We will have an update on the accessibility of this content by 31st October 2020.
