Accessibility statement for HM Inspectorate of Prosecution in Scotland
HM Inspectorate of Prosecution in Scotland is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This accessibility statement applies to: https://prosecutioninspectorate.scot
This website partially complies with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 (WCAG) A and AA success criteria, with the below exceptions noted under "Non-accessible content".
You should be able to:
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- use most of the website using a screen reader
Where possible, and for all our published reports, we make documents accessible by providing them in a suitable accessible HTML format. Please note that due to user feedback, our reports are also made available in less accessible alternative formats, for example PDFs.
- In some PDFs there are missing tags on the first and last cover pages. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1
- Images, diagrams and flow charts on some PDF pages do not always have suitable image descriptions. Users of assistive technologies may not have access to information conveyed in images. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1
- There are some infographics which do not have sufficient colour contrast. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.4.3. We are working towards ensuring all future publications have sufficient colour contrast.
All images on this site are accompanied by a brief alternative text which where appropriate identifies an image or its function. This alternative text (alt-text) is generally only visible when the browser's automatic image loading feature is turned off.
All text links are written so that they make sense when read out of context.
