Measures to support accessibility

Digital Interactive Ltd takes the following measures to ensure accessibility of Infreemation:

  • Include accessibility as part of our 'mission statement'.
  • Include accessibility throughout our internal policies.
  • Integrate accessibility into our procurement practices.

Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Infreemation is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.



Additional accessibility considerations

Digital Interactive Ltd is committed to providing a website/product that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. To meet this commitment, we periodically test our website and software, making amendments where necessary. Further, we aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make Web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance to these guidelines will help us provide a site that is more user friendly to everyone.

Limitations and alternatives (partial compliance)

Despite our best efforts to ensure accessibility of Infreemation, there may be some limitations. Below is a description of known limitations, and potential solutions. Please contact us if you observe an issue not listed below.

Known limitations for Infreemation:

  1. Adobe PDF downloadable documents: Some reports are downloadable in PDF format because Reports are designed to be exportable for internal communications . We are looking at ways of generating non PDF reports. Please contact our support desk if needed.
  2. Training vidoes: Some of our training of offered as online video because Training on demand is a useful service to allow users to train at their own speed. Transcripts and CC are available on the training videos. Please contact our support desk if needed.
  3. Flash: Small parts of the report generators use Flash in the form of clickable buttons because Originally developed this way due to the flexibility offered. These are due to be replaced by December 1 2020. Please contact our support desk if needed.
