Unitu Accessibility Statement

In line with our ambition to help give all students a voice, Unitu is committed to providing a learning environment that is accessible to users with a range of disabilities, including those with visual impairments.

The purpose of this statement is to present clear information about our target level of accessibility and to reiterate our commitment to accessibility and inclusivity in all we do.

We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our platform and have integrated several accessibility features to meet the criteria defined by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). The guidelines produced by the WAI are widely regarded as the international standard for web accessibility (W3C, 2021). Our goal is to meet the “Level AA” standard.

Web accessibility is an ongoing process, as is development of the Unitu platform. As such we acknowledge that sometimes, despite our very best efforts, there are areas of the platform that may be inaccessible or may not adhere to WCAG 2.1 standards. We will ensure that all new features on the platform achieve “Level AA” conformance to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1.

This accessibility statement is an overarching approach to making Unitu inclusive for disabled people and will be reviewed biannually thereafter.
