We will continue to work to ensure that all of our website functions work well when used with access devices such as screen readers, braille readers, smart phones and other devices.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
The Shropshire Lieutenancy 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.
Non compliance with the accessibility regulations
Video controls do not have enough contrast. This fails WCAG 2.1 level AA success criterion 1.4.11 (non-text contrast). This is an issue with the YouTube video player and not within our control.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
We are currently undertaking an accessibility review combining a manual test of a sample of pages, as well as using Wave Accessibility Checker for automated testing of the full website.
Our main website platform, available at https://lordlieutenantofshropshire.org.uk/
We are developing an accessibility roadmap based on the outcome of our accessibility compliance review and this will show how and when we plan to improve accessibility on this website.
