Accessibility statement

This accessibility statement applies to MUSEUM.WALES.

This website is run by Amgueddfa Cymru – Museum Wales. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. Accessibility guidelines have been an integral part of the design and development process from the outset, as well as user testing by a wide variety of people. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts using browser or device settings
  • zoom in up to 400% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using a keyboard or 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.

Non-accessible content

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).

We plan to add text alternatives for all images by December 2024. When we publish new content we'll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
