The Roaming solution for the public sector
This accessibility statement applies to wiki.govroam.uk.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’).

Jisc is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website 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.
The site is built using DokuWiki, a third-party open source wiki platform. It is partially compliant with WCAG 2.1, but we are aware of some accessibility issues which would need to be fixed centrally by the developer.
We have made the decision to continue using DokuWiki, but will monitor any changes to its accessibility and revisit this as required. We will also contact the developer to establish whether there are any planned improvements to the above.
Some of our PDFs, Word documents and Excel spreadsheets are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how customers can configure the govroam service, and our onboarding forms are published as Word documents.
We are in the process of reviewing all essential documentation to ensure that they meet accessibility standards and that they’re accessible to screen readers. We’re working in order of priority, with those most relevant to service implementation considered more important. This will be completed by end of October 2020.
There are some potential colour contrast issues when accessing our onboarding forms via Apple devices or OpenOffice (1.4.3 Contrast). Our aim is to transfer these from Word to online forms, which would be more consistently accessible, within the next 12 months (September 2021).
Any new documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. For example, we do not plan to fix our ‘High Level Architecture’ PDF.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
We're committed to working on the issues outlined above, either by investigating our own solutions or by raising any accessibility issues with our third-party providers.
When updates are made to this site, we will ensure that they meet WCAG 2.1 AA.
