6. Alternative formats

We've designed our content to be as accessible as possible. If you still experience barriers with accessing information provided by university partners, they may be able to offer their content in alternative formats.

We formally test the accessibility of the TAP Feed against WCAG 2.1 AA criteria. This test includes all new features before they are released. If you find something that is not accessible, please contact us.

8. Custom branding on TAP Feeds

TAP Feed administrators can add primary and secondary colours to their TAP Feed. TAP administrators should ensure that text that will appear in or against your primary colour satisfies the WCAG 2.1 AA colour contrast ratio.

9. Non-compliance with accessibility regulations

Some Javascript elements on the TAP Feed present focus indication issues on some partner websites when embedded inside an iframe. We aim to correct these problems over time in collaboration with partners.
