As the provider of the Learning Pool Stream LXP, we are committed to providing a platform that is accessible to the widest possible audience.
We want everyone who uses the Stream to find the experience rewarding. In support of this vision, we strive to make the Stream as accessible as possible to users whatever their level of ability. A guide to achieving this we use the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. Our ultimate goal is for the Stream to meet Level AA standards, WCAG’s recommended level of conformance for entire sites.
Technical information about the accessibility of Stream
Learning Pool is committed to making Stream accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
Stream is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons. We are on target to resolve all of these by 1st November 2020.
LXP-1469 (level A) – login page – some of the login options do not advise on where to go next, or display a link to return to the homepage.
LXP-1476 (level AA) – search – once a search has been initiated there is no way to easily return to the dashboard and its sections (like “Recently Viewed” and “My Plan”).
LXP-1478 (level AA) – search – search button is an active tab navigation element, but does not have any functionality as search is triggered on keystrokes.
LXP-1484 (level A) – search – results are returned but screenreader is not informed.
LXP-1488 (level A) – search – search bar cannot be seen by Dragon (voice activation technology).
LXP-1491 (level A) – search – skip to main content just refreshes the page.
LXP-1498 (level A) – comments panel – comment filter functionality not accessible to screen readers.
