Web Accessibility Statement

Web Accessibility Statement

The Legal Education Foundation is committed to making all web content on the “The Legal Education Foundation” websites World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, level A and AA compliant and when possible, the updated WCAG 2.2 standard. We strive to achieve this by continually testing and updating our web pages and content against the W3C WCAG Accessibility Standards and as indicated, making changes to the websites to ensure we meet the new success criteria that emerge as the standards evolve.

We test using these standards to ensure that we’re meeting our responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010.

We’re always working to make improvements to the accessibility and usability of the “The Legal Education Foundation” websites, especially where content and delivery is reliant on third party providers.

Compliance standards

We try our best to ensure we test with a wide range of technologies, but we cannot commit to testing every browser version with every version of assistive technology, nor testing on every operating system version or mobile handset type. We focus on testing with more recent technology, as this enables more security and provides improved accessibility features and accessibility support for users.

Technology we use for testing

We test the website using the following browsers and assistive technology combinations:

  • Microsoft Edge and Windows 11 Read Aloud (latest version).
  • Firefox and NVDA (latest version).
  • Chrome with JAWS 2020 (latest version) and NVDA (latest version).
  • Apple iOS – Safari (latest version) on iPhone and iPad with VoiceOver and Magnification.
  • Android – Chrome with Talkback and Magnification.
  • Windows High contrast mode (Edge and Firefox).
  • In browser magnification up to 400%.
  • Keyboard navigation only.

Third party functionality and services

In some places on the “The Legal Education Foundation” websites, we depend on third parties to deliver functionality and services that we cannot perform ourselves. Wherever possible we work with third parties to ensure that the service they provide also achieves conformance with at least WCAG 2.1 Level AA.

We cannot guarantee that all our third-party applications and services will always remain accessible and usable due to various updates made by third party suppliers.

If you discover any of our third-party services are not working correctly, please use the Contact Form to make us aware of the problem. We will take steps to rectify the issue.

Legacy software and browser support

While we try to ensure support for older browsers, it is not always possible or feasible to continue this support.

We recommend users of legacy systems to upgrade, as this will provide the optimal and most secure browsing experience.


We are committed to the continual improvement of the accessibility of our website. We achieve this by doing the following:

  • Performing regular accessibility audits.
  • Speaking with our customers and incorporating their feedback to improve our services.
  • Keeping up with the latest best practices and evolving standards.
  • Reporting a web accessibility issue
  • If you experience any accessibility issues while using our website, please let us know by using the Contact Form.
