Eczema Tracker Accessibility

Accessibility Statement

This accessibility statement applies to the My Eczema Tracker mobile app available on the Apple istore and Android Play Store.

Commitment

The University of Nottingham is committed to making the My Eczema Tracker app accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance statement

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA.  My Eczema Tracker app is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.

Non-compliance 

  • Some combinations of text and background colours do not have enough contrast. This may make the text harder to see for people with visual impairments.  
  • The voiceover does not accurately reflect some parts of the text. Making sure the voiceover is identical to the text is important for users with screen readers. 
  • The app has problems with reflowing content. This means that the app can only be used when a device is in portrait mode. 

We plan to fix these problems in the next update of the app, which is currently in progress (as of August 2021). 

Feedback, alternative formats and contact information

We want to ensure everyone can use the app and welcome your feedback. If you find encounter an accessibility problem not listed here or you require an alternative format, please contact us: CEBD@nottingham.ac.uk.  We try to respond to queries within 2 weeks, however we will prioritise responding to accessibility problems.

Enforcement procedure 

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing accessibility regulations. If you’re not happy with how we respond to your accessibility requirements, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).
