The Open University is committed to making its websites and apps accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This app 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.
Following on from the accessibility audit of the AMI Sports: Golf app, we will continue to work through the issues to identify solutions and develop a roadmap for resolving them. Some fixes can be carried out internally, and others will require work with third parties. Our initial investigations will be completed by the end of December 2021 by which point we will update this statement with further details and timings. We will prioritise issues that have the biggest impact on users of the app.
Specific accessibility issues for AMI Sports: Golf app:
The graph elements in the Dashboard and Personal Monitoring sections are not able to be read or described when using a screen reader. This fails WCAG 1.1.1 Non-text content. Planned fixing date: By 01/06/2022.
When the “Larger Text” option is turned on in the iOS accessibility settings, text in the Dashboard and Personal Monitoring graphs’ scales overlap. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.4.4 (Resize text). Planned fixing date: By 01/06/2022
Some links are not recognised and announced as links by screen readers. This makes it difficult for screen reader users to identify and activate these links. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 4.1.2 (Name, Role, Value). Weblinks and email links (in the legal information) may not be accessed when a screen reader is on. Planned fixing date: By 01/01/2022
The log session and daily Wellness Log buttons on the top of the Dashboard are not labelled as buttons in the code and therefore no action description is described by screen readers. The alternative tabbed buttons at the bottom of the screen are all labelled as buttons. This fails WCAG 3.3.2 Labels or instructions. Planned fixing date: By 01/01/2022
In the edit profile form screen readers do not recognise Handicap or Password as text buttons. They are selectable but are not read aloud. This fails WCAG 3.3.2 Labels or instructions. Planned fixing date: By 01/01/2022
Subheadings on the graphs are not labelled as a heading in the code. This means that screen reader software cannot identify them as headings. Screen reader users can use correctly marked up headings in several ways e.g. to provide an overview of the content of each screen; to navigate the content. When headings have not been marked up correctly these strategies are not possible for screen reader users. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships).
The workload alerts in the personal monitoring section which appear when workload has gone above or below thresholds do not provide enough contrast with the background colour, making them difficult to distinguish. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.4.3 (Contrast). Contrast is only 3.3:1 at best for the red alerts on the grey background (i.e. 4.5:1 contrast threshold is not met). This can be improved with colour inversion accessibility features. Planned fixing date: By 01/01/2022
The contrast between the background and the sleep time (purple) passes WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.4.3 for large text but fails the criteria where the font is less than 18 points high. We will investigate this further and prepare any required updates by 01/01/2022.
Some duration features within the app require circular scrolling to action. This requires a circular swiping gesture, and there is no simple alternative single point gesture provided. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 2.5.1 (Pointer Gestures). Planned fixing date: By 01/06/2022
The “AMI Sports: Golf” information screens which appear when you first use the app require a swiping gesture to move backwards and forwards through the screens. Although these are not required viewing to use the app we are aware that there is no simple accessible alternative for moving forwards or backwards. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 2.5.1 (Pointer Gestures). Planned fixing date: By 01/06/2022
The “AMI Sports: Golf” screens provide buttons to move between the content. These buttons are small and may prove difficult to use. This can be improved with magnification accessibility tools. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 2.5.5 (Target size). Planned fixing date: By 01/01/2022
(Note: WCAG 2.1 Success Criteria 2.5.5 Target size is a Level AAA criterion, and we are not required to support this as part of the Public Sector Bodies Accessibility Regulations. However, we believe that this is an important aspect of app accessibility and so we have included this in our accessibility testing for apps).
We are not claiming Disproportionate Burden for this app.
We do not have anything out of scope in this app.
As we build new websites and apps, we strive to ensure that they are accessible and comply with the current legislation. We also review and audit older sites and apps to identify what changes we need to make to improve accessibility.
The Open University website and apps development process has stages that test the usability and accessibility of new and updated platforms, activities and services against WCAG 2.1. As well as working with external consultants, an internal Accessibility and Usability Evaluation team helps to offer guidance in this area and to ensure that accessibility and usability are embedded in the design and development process for developers and content creators.
These activities ensure that we are meeting and responding to the changing digital requirements of our students and users as well as developing and delivering systems, apps and websites which are as accessible and usable as possible.
The Open University is committed to accessibility and demonstrates this in a number of different ways:
The Securing Greater Accessibility team (SeGA) was set up in 2010 as a university-wide initiative to promote accessibility and inclusive practice and support students and staff. SeGA offers training and guidance in accessibility in teaching and learning and oversees forums and activities for a wider community of practice and research. SeGA also runs a network of over 50 accessibility champions and coordinators, who work as points of contact on accessibility queries within their respective academic areas.
Staff at The Open University are offered on-demand accessibility training in a variety of topics to support them to carry out their roles. This will be complemented in the future by the introduction of bespoke, mandatory training in accessibility for all staff to complete in order to further embed accessibility good practice.
The Open University Library provides wide-ranging support to students with disabilities and specific requirements. As well as working with students directly to offer guidance in accessible resources, the Open University Library staff work with publishers to help improve the accessibility of their products.
The Open University aims to make studying as accessible as possible and a range of adjustments and support are available. A well-established disability support team provides guidance for students and arranges for students to have support when accessing digital content online or alternatively, access to a variety of formats. A wealth of resources for information and guidance in enabling students to study as effectively as possible in the digital environment are available via the help centre.
This statement was prepared on 10 June 2021. It was last reviewed on 15 June 2021.
This app was last tested on 10 June 2021. The test was carried out by The Open University (Dr Ben Langdown, Jason Baverstock, Manoharan Ramachandran and Kirsty Baker).
We used this approach to decide on a sample of pages to test: All main pages on the app were tested – Dashboard, Personal Monitoring, Daily Wellness, Log a Session, My Profile. This provided a full assessment of the app features to ensure accessibility compliance/non-compliance was recorded.
