August 2022 to March 2023

We are committed to improving the accessibility of the Hwb Digital Learning platform.

Significant version updates to the applications that contain some accessibility testing failures are currently in development. The updated applications will be iteratively released between August 2022 and March 2023. 

Over the next 8 months we will be working to implement accessibility improvements across the following applications:

  • Resources
  • Events
  • News
  • Profile
  • Search
  • Playlists
  • Networks
  • Classes

As part of this work, we will be addressing the following areas:

  • not all page elements are descriptive. This fails WCAG 2.4.6
  • link text does not always inform users of a change of context. This fails WCAG 2.1 2.4.4
  • headings on some pages are not in a logical order
  • some pages use non-standard attributes that may cause some browsers to read the page incorrectly, or not as intended
