Accessibility Statement

 

General 

The University of Cumbria Students’ Union is committed to ensuring that its website and relative information is accessible to people with disabilities. The site is currently partially compliant through the use of the UserWay Accessibility Widget by Userway.org. This  allows the UCSU site to improve its compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1). 

Enabling The Accessibility Menu 

The accessibility tool can be accessed by clicking on the blue round icon on the top right-hand side of the website. Once that is enabled, a menu will open from which a number adjustments are possible. 

The tool enables adjustments as follows: 

  • Navigation of the website via a keyboard 

  • Use of big cursor 

  • Access to screen Reader 

  • A variety of contrast adjustments 

  • Text size adjustments 

  • Changes to text spacing 

  • Links highlighter 

  • Animations control 

  • Dyslexia friendly or legible fonts 

  • Changes to line height 

  • Page structure display 

Here For You 

While UCSU makes every effort to ensure site and content accessibility, we are aware that some areas may not be fully compliant and accessible, at present.  

UCSU will continue to work to ensure increased levels of accessibility through staff training and adaptations to its site and content. However, should you have difficulty accessing any area of the site or any of the published materials in the meantime, please contact us at student.union@cumbria.ac.uk detailing the issue that you are having and we will be happy to assist.
