Accessibility

In Transit is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, whilst strongly promoting the work of the artists we support, using images, sounds and written pieces throughout our pages. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website for all people, and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines. Whilst we strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. 

In the meantime, on the intransit.space website, you should be able to:

  • Change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • Zoom in up to 400% 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 and VoiceOver)

We are also making the text on our websites as simple as possible to understand. We write in plain English and explain technical terms wherever possible.

AbilityNet (Opens in new window) has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

How accessible is our site?

Some content on our websites is not fully accessible because:

• Artworks may contain flashing images, are without closed captions and/or accompanying descriptions.
As In Transit aims to support creatives to consider and implement accessibility solutions when developing their creative practices,
we do not compel artists to make their studio updates/work fully accessible which may alter the intentions behind the work.

What we are doing to improve accessibility

We are committed to providing a platform that is accessible to all and we are working hard to achieve that, but our budget and complexity of the task provide challenges.

Currently we are:

  • Ensuring that components are built to the highest WCAG standards possible
  • Rolling out accessibility training to staff and creatives who create content on In Transit
  • Encouraging and working with exhibiting artists and partners to make their projects as inclusive and accessible as possible
  • Raising general accessibility awareness across the platform through our programming
