Accessibility Statement

This Accessibility statement covers the Sermegon® web and mobile app and the website. 

 

The Sermegon® App and website are run by OVACtech Ltd. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to: 

 

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts.

  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen.

  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard.

  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software.

  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).

 

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand. 

 

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility 

 

OVACtech Ltd is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018. 

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations 

 

PDFs and other documents 

 

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. By March 2023, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages. 

 

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. 

 

All new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards. 

 

Live video

 

We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations. 

What we’re doing to improve accessibility 

 

Our accessibility roadmap which will be published in March 2023 shows how and when we plan to improve accessibility on this website.
