Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
Some videos do not have an audio description or text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the all the information.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix videos published before 23 September 2020 if they’re not essential to providing our services. For example we do not plan to add audio descriptions to the videos on the Our Reasons page.
