This accessibility statement applies to St Mary’s University Reporting Service website available to staff and students (http://smrs.stmarys.ac.uk).
This website is run by St Mary’s University. 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, contrast levels 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 (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
We are committed to making all our web based applications accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is not compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons
Non-accessible compliance with the accessibility regulations
Links and some other text elements fail colour contrast requirements. This fails WCAG 1.4.3 Contrast Minimum (A).
Many of the images and icons used across the site such as active link indicator. This fails WCAG 1.1.1.
We are looking to move off of our SharePoint site, and have also implemented a new Student Records System. We will have stopped using SMRS by 30th September 2021. We will look to resolve these issues by then if we haven’t moved off the site.
At this time, we have made no claims of disproportionate burden.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
At this time, we believe all content is within scope of the regulations.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We audited these applications in 2020 to identify any non-accessible content, corrections were implemented where possible.
We have a working group which meets quarterly to track the auditing and remediation of all applications used at St Mary’s. We will continue to test applications and this statement will be reviewed again by 30th September 2021.
