This website is run by Milton Keynes Council. It is designed to be used by as many people as possible. The text should be clear and simple to understand. You should be able to:

  • zoom in up to 300% without problems
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • use most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

 We've also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

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

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

 Milton Keynes Council are committed to making its websites accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.


This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.


Non-accessible content

There is a contrast issue with text and background colour on the Learning Futures homepage.

This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 Contrast
(Minimum). There is very low contrast between foreground and background colours, text has a contrast ratio of less than 4.5.1, or larger text less than 3.1.

The MKPDC team plan to work with the website developers to solve this by April 2020.


How we tested this website

 This website was and is currently being tested for compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines V2.1 level A and level AA, and these tests have been carried out internally.


What we’re doing to improve accessibility

 We plan to identify and fix issues according to the timescales shown for each area above.
