Web accessibility statement for the Medical Technologies Innovation Facility

The Medical Technologies Innovation Facility (MTIF) is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

This accessibility statement applies to the MTIF website (

The MTIF website is managed by MTIF. We want as many people as possible to be able to use the website. This means you should be able to:

  • you cannot modify the line height or spacing of text
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the websites using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the websites using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the websites using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve 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.

Compliance status
The website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.2 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non-accessible content
The content listed below is non-accessible due to non-compliance with the accessibility regulations. Where we have content that is not yet accessible, we have an ongoing programme of work that will help us to reach compliance.

Colour contrast
Some colour combinations used on our site do not meet colour contrast ratio standards making it difficult for users with visual impairments. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criteria 1.4.3: Contrast minimum (AA).

We are reviewing our web pages to identify instances where contrast issues exist and we are actively working to resolve any issues by January 2025.

Most of our videos do not include separate audio descriptions and transcripts. This does mean that the provision of video falls short of the WCAG 2.2 AA standards. Some embedded videos are not captioned or use automatically generated captions which may be inaccurate. These issues fail WCAG 2.2 success criteria 1.2.2 (A), 1.2.3 (A), 1.2.5 (AA).

Third-party tools
Our site uses third-party applications which may not be fully accessible. We work to ensure that the content on these applications is accessible, and we are working with our third-party providers to explore the provision of accessible code on their platforms. We endeavour to ensure that future suppliers are compliant. Current examples of third-party tools are:

  • Wistia – video player
  • Civic – cookie banner
  • Gravity Forms – forms
  • Pipedrive – form integration
  • Yoast – SEO
  • Google Tag Manager
  • Google Analytics

Website testing
Website scans are performed when CMS upgrades are installed to identify any content that is not compliant with WCAG 2.2 (AA). The scans are supported by regular manual checks by web editors.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We have an ongoing programme of work to address any accessibility issues that are highlighted by our scans. We are continually working on our content and are finding ways to make the site easier to navigate. We are developing training and guidance on how to create accessible content to help website editors make improvements.

Preparation of this accessibility statement
This statement was first prepared on 10 June 2024. It was prepared by MTIF with support from our parent organisation, Nottingham Trent University, and Blue Frontier IT Ltd 2024.
