Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

The Eatwell Interactive Guide fails on most of the WCAG 2.1 success criteria, however a few to highlight include:

  • The game relies on click and drag and visual cues to complete the game. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).
  • the interactive is unusable via a keyboard or Voice Over tool. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1 (keyboard).

The Interactive Eatwell Guide will require a redesign and rebuild and we are currently investigating how to make this fully accessible and will have an update by April 2021.
