Accessibility Statement

eFlow you first

eFlow.ie is committed to:

Maintaining an accessible website.

Ensuring that this website achieves “Level AA” conformance to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, to comply with the National Disability Authority’s Code of Practice on Accessibility of Public Services and Information Provided by Public Bodies
Ensuring that all new information on the website will achieve “Level AA” conformance to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1
Including accessibility when we procure 3rd-party systems or upgrades to existing systems
We are aware of some areas on the website where we could improve accessibility. We are currently addressing these areas and we are working towards achieving “Level AA” conformance to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 by the end of Q4 2021.

Compliance Status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. eflow.ie is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1. and is planning to be fully conformant by the end of Q4 2021.

Non-accessible content

Some content on the current eFlow website is non-accessible, however it is planned to be replaced with new conformant content by the end of Q4 2021.

The current non-accessible content is as follows:

  1. Text on some pages do not meet WCAG minimum colour-contrast requirements – Text that is too faint can cause problems for users who are colour blind or have low vision.WCAG requires a minimum colour contrast ratio of at least 4.5:1 for normal text, and 3:1 for large text (18pt and above, or 14pt bold).
  1. Element ID’s are not unique – two or more elements on the same page have the same ID value. Sometimes it’s important to know how different page elements fit together. Whereas sighted visitors may be able to get this information from the visual layout, visitors using screen readers rely on page elements being marked up correctly in the HTML.
Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared and made available on 23 October 2021. The methods used to prepare the statement are laid out in Article 3(1) of Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2018/1523  and by the National Disability Authority.
