We commit to ensuring the communications we produce are clear and accessible to the widest range of people.
This website is run by the Research Office, London College of Communication, University of the Arts London (UAL). This accessibility statement applies to ethics.arts.ac.uk
Other websites and browser based systems on the arts.ac.uk domain have their own accessibility statements.
The website on the subdomain ethics.arts.ac.uk/wpx uses HTML 5 (HyperText Mark-up Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to render content. This website is built upon WordPress and uses an accessibility ready theme named Neve.
We commit to ensuring this website is as accessible as possible and we want as many people as possible to be able to use it. This means that you should be able to:
• access the website regardless of the device and browser you are using
• zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
• navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
• listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent version of VoiceOver)
We have also tried to make the website text as easy to understand as possible although we recognise we have more work to do on this.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
UAL 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.
It has not been possible to ensure that the website on ethics.arts.ac.uk/klynt meets WCAG 2.1 (AA) at the current time because of the limitations of the Klynt software with which the interactivity in the “Immersive Taster” was implemented.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
The landing page ethics.arts.ac.uk offers two paths of entry. The main site “Home” leads to ethics.arts.ac.uk/wpx which is fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.
The “Immersive Taster” on ethics.arts.ac.uk/klynt acts as an introduction to the main site “Home” and can be re-directed to it anytime.
We have ensured that the content that is in the “Immersive Taster” site can be engaged with in an accessible form through the main site “Home”, therefore no content remains inaccessible.
