Accessibility on nexgenagrichem.co.uk site

This statement applies to content published on http://www.nexgenagrichem.co.uk/. It does not apply to content on any other website that is reached via any links on this website. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:


• Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
• Listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).
• Resize to the size of your window and display a readable text size whichever device you are using.
• Zoom in up to 175% without the text spilling off the screen

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

How accessible the website is

Parts of this website are not fully accessible. For example:

• some pages and document attachments are not clearly written
• some tables do not have row headers
• some pages have poor colour contrast
• some heading elements are not consistent
• some images do not have good alternative text
• some buttons are not correctly identified
• some error messages are not clearly associated with form controls
• many older documents in PDF format are not fully accessible]

What we do about known issues
We work to achieve and maintain WCAG 2.1 AA standards, but it is not always possible for all our content to be accessible. Where content is not accessible, we will state a reason, warn users and offer alternatives.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Nextgenagrichem 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 known issues listed below.

Non accessible content
The content that is not accessible is outlined below with details of:

• Not all pages have a mechanism for a user to bypass navigation and jump straight to the content.
• Some elements have insufficient colour contrast
• Some form elements are not clearly labelled
• Some HTML elements are missing Language attribute
• There are some buttons and links that do not have discernible text
• You may not be able to navigate all parts only by using your keyboard

Some documents and content are exempt from the regulations (such as live video content and PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services), so we do not currently have any plans to make them accessible. But if you need to access information in one of these document types, you can contact us and ask for an alternative format.
