Some content on NDA’s website does not fully comply with the European Union (Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications of Public Sector Bodies) Regulations 2020. For example:
- Some documents in PDF lack a correct table heading tab order or headings and some contents in the annexes of research reports, such as paper based surveys or questionnaires produced as part of the research may not be fully accessible
- YouTube iframes' active components do not have sufficient colour contrast, related videos inner slider is missing name, content on hover is disappearing, hidden content is readable with a screen reader and on logo hover the content is not dismissable.
