Accessibility Statement for www.thisisliveart.co.uk

We have developed this website to ensure that it is usable by everybody, regardless of age or disability.

Using our site

We do not provide built-in accessibility tools as we believe it is more important to support everyone’s personal device settings and assistive technologies.

What we have done to make your website experience better

We have built our website to be accessible with common assistive technologies and different ways of using websites. This means that you can:

  • 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)
  • navigate a page using headings throughout our written content. We also use plain English principles to make our content clear and easy to understand.
  • navigate our website with assistive technology via embed landmarks and ARIA functionality.

What to do if you can’t access parts of this website

We welcome your feedback on using the LADA website. If you have experienced any accessibility challenges, please let us know. Your information will help us improve the website for all users. You can contact us via:

If you are not happy with how respond to issues you have raised with us about the accessibility of our website then contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS). The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for ensuring websites meet accessibility standards.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Live Art Development Agency is committed to making its website accessible. We aim for conformance with the WCAG 2.1 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1) at level AA. This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Known limitations

Whilst we have endeavoured to ensure the accessibility of our site, there are some known limitations. These are documented below, along with suggested work around, and/or our long-term strategy for addressing these limitations.

Currently we are aware of the following potential problems that we are working to improve:

  • Embedded video and audio players can sometimes be difficult to use with assistive technology.
  • Older PDFs and documents are not always accessible.
  • Older images may not have ALT tags.
  • We aim to provide captions and/or transcripts with selected videos but that might not be available for older videos.
  • We do not provide audio descriptions for videos but aim to provide visual content in alternative formats where possible.
  • If you encounter content that you cannot access, then please contact us and we will provide you with an accessible alternative.

Third party content and functionality

We make use of third party resources such as forms (Wufoo), audio (Soundcloud), document (Issuu and Scribd) and video players (Vimeo) to embed content in our website. Wherever possible we will ensure these are conformant.

What we are doing to address known issues

When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards, with ALT-tags added.
