COVID Sense Signage Pilot

Accessibility policy

We want the COVID Sense Signage Pilot to be accessible and usable for as many people as possible.

As such we have tried to make our site more accessible by using:

  • Nested headings
  • Alt-text implementation
  • Standard case typography
  • Optimisation for screen magnifiers


If you cannot access any part of this site or want to report an accessibility problem, please contact us here:

Enforcement procedure

The Equality and Human Rights Commission enforces the accessibility regulations (the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018).

If you're not happy with how we respond to your feedback, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service. They are an independent advice service. They will advise you on what to do next.

Compliance statement

The Scottish Government is committed to making its websites accessible in line with the accessibility regulations. This accessibility statement applies to the COVID Sense Signage Pilot website, which can be accessed here: COVID Sense Signage Scheme Pilot.

This statement was prepared on 26/05/2022 and last reviewed on 20/06/2022.

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 (WCAG) A and AA success criteria.

The website was reviewed by the Scottish Government’s digital accessibility team in June 2022.

Non-accessible content

Not compliant with the accessibility regulations

The following areas have been identified as not compliant with accessibility guidelines:

  • Mailto links are used on the website. We will amend this feature following the evaluation phase of the pilot, should the pilot continue into Autumn/Winter.
  • Whilst the poster signage is designed primarily to be printed and displayed physically, the PDF generated versions of these posters, following the completion of the self-assessment check-list, are non-complaint on several accessibility criteria. The Scottish Government engaged with equality organisations, including disability organisations, to ensure that the printed posters are accessible.
