About the project
Scroll helped UCL with accessibility audits of their websites, to check compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. We also delivered training workshops about inclusive content.
The project focussed on creating inclusive digital services and making sure that all UCL websites met level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1), in line with the UK’s legal accessibility requirements.
UCL websites varied in the overall user experience each offered. There was a need to pinpoint and raise awareness of what the issues were with accessibility and quality, and who was responsible for fixing them.
- Highlighted common accessibility and quality assurance issues across UCL websites.
- Raised awareness of issues with website owners and editors, so that they can achieve compliance with the WCAG.
- Promoted the importance of developing user-centred inclusive content and writing for the web.
UCL is London’s leading multidisciplinary university with over 600 websites serving students, academics, staff and research projects.
