Accessibility statement for A55 Online Engagement Hub
This accessibility statement applies to the A55 Online Engagement Hub https://a55engagement.gov.wales/.
This website is run by Ramboll on behalf of Welsh Government. 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.
How accessible this website is
We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:
- Some of our online forms are difficult to navigate using just a keyboard or a screen reader. These can be requested in an alternative format.
- Online forms can be tab navigated. Use the arrow keys to select answer choices from dropdown menus. Use space to check any checkboxes.
- interactive maps might not be accessible. Where relevant content is described in the accompanying text
- many documents are in PDF format and older PDFs may not be fully accessible to screen reader software

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
The Welsh Government is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 – Level AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
The online survey forms do not detect input errors related to the format of postcodes and phone numbers. This prevents error suggestion which fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 3.3.3.
The forms are created using a third-party software that does not include this capability. Postcodes and phone numbers are currently validated by setting a minimum and maximum number of characters that can be input. Example input formats are provided in the form. We will monitor survey responses and review the form software if a significant number of issues arise.
PDFs and other documents
PDFs created specifically for this site have been checked for accessibility. There may be some older PDF reports that do not meet accessibility standards.
Preparation of this accessibility statement
This statement was prepared on 16 November. This website was last tested by Ramboll on 12 November 2020.
The website was tested using automated tools and manual checks. Automated tools include:
- Google Chrome development tools
- Wave Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool
- Powermapper SiteSort Accessibility Reporting
All pages in the launch version of the website have been tested.
Templates for future components of the site (e.g. Online Exhibition) were also tested.
Manual checks included a review of the launch site against WCAG 2.1 success criteria using How to Meet WCAG.
We also used the 18F (US Government digital agency) accessibility checklist.
