This accessibility statement applies to https://natureandus.wales
This website is run by Natural Resources Wales (NRW). We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to 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.

- Content that appears on hover of the navigation menu is unable to be dismissed.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
NRW is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
Compliance status This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.2 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Pre-recorded videos on the Phase 1 Findings and REvision pages do not have a descriptive text transcript or audio description track. People who have difficulty watching video or synchronised media content may not be able to access the information within these videos. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 1.2.3 (audio description or media alternative (pre-recorded)). We plan to resolve this by: 31 March 2024
Pre-recorded videos on the Phase 1 Findings and REvision pages do not have an alternative audio description track. People who are blind or have low vision, as well as those with cognitive limitations, may have difficulty interpreting visually what is happening within the pre-recorded video content. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 1.2.5 (audio description (pre-recorded)). We plan to resolve this by: 31 March 2024
Additional content that appears when hovering the navigation menu is unable to be dismissed using a keyboard. This may result in people who use screen magnification software unintentionally triggering the content and being unable to dismiss the dropdown menus which can cover content at these increased zoom levels. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 1.4.13 (content on hover or focus). We plan to resolve this by: 31 March 2024
On the Phase 1 Findings and REvision pages, aria-labels are used in roles where they are not allowed. This can result in important information not being communicated to users to assistive technologies. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role, value).
