The University of Oxford is committed to providing an accessible web presence that gives members of the public and members of the University community full access to University information, courses and activities offered publicly through the web. Our Equality Policy outlines our commitment to a culture which ‘maintains a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff and students are respected’.

This accessibility statement applies to the University of Oxford, Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health website www.tropmedres.ac

Our aims

This website is run by the MORU communications team. 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 have 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.

How accessible this website is

We are aware that some parts of our website are not fully accessible. These include:

  • Links and text in highlighted boxes do not have enough contrast against the background colour.
  • Not all images have a meaningful text alternative.
  • Some images include text as part of the image.
  • Not all page titles are unique or clearly indicate the page’s topic or purpose.
  • Some link text isn’t meaningful out of context.
  • Links have different actions i.e. some links to external sites open in a new browser window while other links open in the same browser window.
  • Some audio content is not accompanied by an audio description or text alternative.
  • Some video content does not have fully synchronised captions, although numerous podcasts have a transcript.
  • Some video or animation content may contain content that flashes more than three times a second.
  • When CSS styling is removed from some pages, the content may not be in logical order.
  • When CSS styling is removed from some pages, dynamic content may lose some of the functionality.
  • Some pages use shape, size, colour, or location to communicate instructions or information.
  • Older Word and PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software.

We are working to address areas where our accessibility needs improvement.
