Technical information about this website's accessibility
Media Storehouse 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 AA standard, due to the exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Success Criterion 1.4.10 Reflow (Level AA):
This may be considered a permitted exception under the condition of large graphics or images where reflow is not feasible without losing meaning. This refers to content that can be presented without loss of information or functionality, and without requiring scrolling in two dimensions for:
Vertical scrolling content at a width equivalent to 320 CSS pixels;
Horizontal scrolling content at a height equivalent to 256 CSS pixels.
This test passes on mobile devices and desktop devices in mobile mode. When operating on a desktop device in desktop mode the vertical scrolling content width is wider to allow for graphical content as the products are printed images.
Content that is not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDF's and other documents
We have replaced all our public PDF's and Word documents with accessible HTML pages. Our heritage collections, including scanned manuscripts, are exempt from current Accessibility Regulations.
Third party content
The secure transaction process may involve an interaction with the customers own bank for security validation and whilst those are outside our control we would expect financial institutions to comply with Accessibility Regulations and the user to be already familiar with their process.
We do not currently offer live video streams.
