You may be required to publish a Web Accessibility Statement on your Website.

This article aims to give you information on the accessibility of Spektrix iframes so that you can include this in your Web Accessibility Statement. 

What is a Web Accessibility Statement?

A Web Accessibility Statement is hosted on your website and contains information about how accessible your website is.

Accessibility Statements provide users with information about the accessibility of your content and help them navigate your website.

It is the responsibility of you and your web developer to create a Web Accessibility Statement which fully documents your website. For the elements of your website which are provided by Spektrix (iframes), you can use the information below to write your Web Accessibility Statement.


Spektrix iframes

At Spektrix we have undertaken an accessibility audit of our iframes in order to assess and ultimately improve the accessibility of our tools. You can use this information to create an Accessibility Statement of your own.

We have recently taken steps to improve the online purchase pathway for partially sighted customers and users of assistive technology. These changes include:

  • Allowing you to add alt text to Event images.
  • Improvements to colour contrast in our Seating Plans.

TIP: When applying styling on your iframes using CSS Styling for iframes this will affect the accessibility of your iframes.

  • Improvements to the hierarchy of information in our iframes. Invisible to most viewers, these changes aid navigation using screen readers by enabling easier movement between sections.

Spektrix iframes meet WGAC 2.1 AA Level Standards for Web Content Accessibility, aside from the ChooseSeats.aspx iframe.

As we continue to work on changes which will improve accessibility, we will update this information.


Plans for the future

Spektrix is a certified B Corp, committed to working on behalf of arts and culture organisations and their audiences. In particular, we believe in using our software and expertise to widen access to theatre and the arts. With that in mind, we aspire to building a fully accessible online ticketing journey.

We are committed to enabling the organisations we work with to make their websites accessible to the widest audience. This means working towards making sure that all of your customers can:

  • Perceive the information presented on the website through one of their senses.
  • Perform the operations and navigation necessary to complete their task on the website.
  • Understand the information as well as the operation of the website.
  • Access the content with any assistive technology they rely on to use the Internet.
