Accessibility statement for the Modern slavery statement registry
This accessibility statement applies to the Modern slavery statement registry, at modern-slavery-statement-registry.service.gov.uk.
This website is run by the Home Office. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

- 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.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
The Home Office 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 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
Some of the submission questions include conditionally revealed content within radio buttons or checkboxes
Users are not always notified when conditionally revealed content associated with a radio button or checkbox is expanded or collapsed - this fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (Name, Role, Value).
