Dear West College Scotland,
I am contacting you with regard to your website accessibility statement:
In the statement you claim disproportionate burden under Part 2 Section 7 of the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No.2) Accessibility Regulations 2018: https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2018....
You have claimed disproportionate burden for the following:
The 360° virtual tours are not keyboard accessible neither are they accessible to blind users. "The latter would be extremely difficult to achieve technically - but the former should be possible, and we are actively exploring more accessible interfaces."
As required by Part 2 Section 7 (2) of the regulations mentioned above, you were required to conduct an assessment of impacting factors before making the disproportionate burden claim. Information on the types of evidence expected in the assessment can be found in the latest monitoring report produced by GDS: https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio....
Given that you made a claim in the accessibility statement (undated), please can you provide me with all documentary evidence that meets monitoring expectations which supports your disproportionate burden claim.
Please find enclosed West College Scotland's response to your recent FOISA request.
