Accessibility Statement

Accessibility Statement

We want everyone who visits the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom and Judicial Committee of the Privy Council websites to feel welcome, find the information they need and have a rewarding experience.

We are committed to making sure that our websites and other digital products are accessible to all users and comply with level AA of The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines — WCAG 2.1. in alignment with The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

The statement applies to the following website:

    Supreme Court Events

We want as many people as possible to be able to use these websites. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts using in-browser settings
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver and Narrator)

We have also made the websites’ text as simple as possible to understand, whilst at the same time retaining recognised legal terms.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
