Accessibility statement for Diversity in the Workplace training
Updated on 26 July 2022
The University of Dundee is committed to making its online training content accessible. This statement summaries where we are and where we plan to get to for the Diversity in the Workplace training module provided in MyDundee.
Using this website
This accessibility statement applies to the Diversity in the Workplace training module available to staff through the MyDundee e-learning system (my.dundee.ac.uk).
The MyDundee website is run by the University of Dundee and uses tools provided by third-party organisations to offer training opportunities to staff. We want as many people as possible to be able to use MyDundee. For example, that means you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts using your browser
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate all of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate all of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to all 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 we tested the Diversity in the Workplace training module
The Diversity in the Workplace training module was last tested on 30 June 2022. The test was carried out by an internal team, Web Services, using a wide range of automated and manual testing techniques and tools:
- Accessibility Insights for Web - provides a detailed walk-through of both automated and manual accessibility issues
- SiteImprove Accessibility checker – provides a quick overview of issues
- aXe – provides an in-depth insight into issues
- Pa11y Dashboard – tests for and tracks changes in accessibility performance over time
- VoiceOver – a built-in screen reader on Mac OS and iOS
- Visual disability simulators like Funkify for Chrome
As part of a detailed accessibility audit, we selected a sample of pages to test. These included the primary functionality of the training module, including navigation, video content, and the quiz feature.
We plan to identify and fix issues according to the timescales shown for each issue mentioned above.
