This accessibility statement applies to the official website of Lady Margaret Hall, with addresses beginning with lmh.ox.ac.uk.
The website is run internally by the LMH Communications Office. 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 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
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
How accessible this website is:
- you cannot skip to the main content when using a screen reader
- most PDF documents are not accessible to screen reader software
- some multimedia content doesn’t yet have audio or text description
- the embedded timeline on www.lmh.ox.ac.uk/about-lmh is not accessible. We provide a text-only version at https://www.lmh.ox.ac.uk/timeline-our-history

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Lady Margaret Hall is committed to making its website accessible. We follow the guidelines set out in the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018. As part of this commitment, we are required to publish known issues with our website. The www.lmh.ox.ac.uk website aims at meeting the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
- The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. We have PDFs with college regulations and statutes which can be classified as essential to providing our services. [By the end of September 2020, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.] Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
- Some of our prerecorded videos are not audio described. This makes it difficult for people who are visually impaired to access all the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.5 (Audio description (Prerecorded). The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix Prerecorded time-based media published before September 2020. [However, we will endeavour to provide transcripts of some of the key videos on the site. Any new videos we publish will meet accessibility standards.]
- We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
- Some link text doesn’t make sense when read on its own (for example, ‘Find out more’) (WCAG 2.1 2.4.4 and 2.4.9).
Third party content
We often create content which is hosted on third party platforms. This includes:
- content we create for social media
- video we host on YouTube
- Publications on FlipHTML5
We are responsible for ensuring the content we supply meets accessibility requirements; however, we are not responsible for the accessibility of the platforms themselves. We are not responsible for the accessibility of third party content or to other sites we link to.
