How accessible is this website?

We are aware some parts of this website aren’t fully accessible.

The Learning Shop is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1, Level AAA), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make Web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly to everyone. Whilst The Learning Shop strives to adhere to the guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website and we are currently working to achieve this. Be aware that due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.

3. Technical information about this website's accessibility

The Learning Shop is committed to making its website 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 AAA standard.


Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
You can zoom in up to 150% without the text spilling off the screen. This fails WCAG 2.1 Success Criterion 1.4.8 (Visual Presentation).
We hope to increase the zoom in the future. Wix.com is working on developing more responsive features in the future for use on the site.
