Scope’s commitment to website accessibility
We are committed to making the Scope Panel site as accessible as possible, it is tested for accessibility every 12 months. We want everyone to be able to us use it, no matter what their impairments and which technologies they use. This is part of our Everyday Equality strategy.
We have created the site taking best-practice web accessibility guidelines into account, including WCAG 2.1 and BS 8878.
This accessibility statement was last updated in September 2020 and follows the advice on accessibility statements in British Standard BS 8878.
Adapting your experience to your needs
We have made the site as usable as we can, but you might have a better experience if you change the settings on your computer to suit your individual needs.
For example, you might change the site’s colours, increase the text size, or have the site spoken aloud.
For help customising your experience using accessibility features already on your computer, or by installing extra assistive technologies, try these sites:
