Our accessibility statement

Blue LMS

Blue LMS has an option to give users a basic “accessible” view - which has a higher contrast than the standard view, allows for font-scaling and can be navigated with only a keyboard. This view works for completing basic courses but isn't currently compatible with advanced Blue LMS features (such as systems training, digital workbooks and event booking). This setting is configured at an admin-level when editing or adding users. It’s worth noting this view is no-longer actively supported as we focus our attention on the “standard” Blue LMS view and our new LMS platform.

We’re working on an exciting new LMS platform which is designed to be WCAG 2.1 AA compliant. Keep an eye on out on our social channels for more information.

Digital learning

PDF refresher guides can be supplied with our first-party e-learning courses, which can be used with screen readers, and our newer courses are visually accessible.

We’re actively investigating and designing new methods for our first-party course creation process - with an aim to balance engaging interactivity with accessibility. We’re aiming for these courses to be WCAG 2.1 AA compliant.

Due to the amount of courses in our extensive library, it’s unrealistic to redesign and republish our entire library using these new methods when they are ready. However, we plan to systematically go through our library on a course-by-course basis and decide which ones will be redesigned and republished in our new methods.

 

Accessibility options on this website

We’ve tried to design our website to be as accessible as possible – however, one text size is not always the best for everyone. Did you know that you can change the scale of the text and content to make it easier to read by using your browser’s zoom function?

On a PC:

To increase the zoom level (on most browsers), press the “Ctrl” and “+” keys together. To decrease the zoom, press “Ctrl” and “-” instead.

On a Mac:

To increase the zoom level (on most browsers), press the “Cmd” and “+” keys together. To decrease the zoom, press “Cmd” and “-” instead.

Alternatively, you can go to the settings section of your chosen browser and set the zoom level there.
