Measures to support accessibility
risr/ takes the following measures to ensure accessibility of risr/apply:
Include accessibility throughout our internal policies.
Appoint an accessibility officer and/or ombudsperson.
Provide continual accessibility training for our staff.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. risr/apply is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.
Additional accessibility considerations
Although our goal is WCAG 2.1 Level AA conformance, within risr/apply, we have also applied some Level AAA Success Criteria. In terms of colour contrast, we advise our users to aim for a minimum of 7:1 (AAA) contrast.

Limitations and alternatives
Despite our best efforts to ensure accessibility of risr/apply, there may be some limitations. Below is a description of known limitations, and potential solutions. Please contact us if you observe an issue not listed below.
Known limitations for risr/apply:
While most of risr/apply is usable with just a keyboard, some parts are still under development and we aim to fix these issues as part of our regular development processes.
Development sprints have accessibility testing periods built-in.
Parts of risr/apply rely on modal dialogs that open and close on user action. While we are continually improving the user experience when these dialogs are visible on the page, there are instances where the modals will not function properly for users relying exclusively on the keyboard to navigate.
risr/apply relies heavily on forms, some of which are failing the “Success Criterion 2.4.6 - Headings and Labels.” We are aiming to constantly review form and form elements usage throughout risr/apply to provide labels to identify all form controls, including text fields, checkboxes, radio buttons, and drop-down menus.
risr/apply may link to, or interface with, third-party websites that we do not control. These third-party vendors may not have undertaken the same efforts that we have in order to comply with WCAG-2.1 AA standards.
risr/ assessed the accessibility of risr/apply by the following approaches:
