Tailte Éireann is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the European Union (Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications of Public Sector Bodies) Regulations 2020.
This accessibility statement applies to content published on www.tailte.ie.
Statement of Commitment
The government of Ireland is committed to making gov.ie accessible in accordance with S.I. 358/2020.
We are committed to achieving AA standard under WCAG 2.1 guidelines.
This accessibility statement applies to tailte.ie only – not other government sites or subdomains.
Tailte.ie is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AA, due to the non-accessible content listed below. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard. The site meets most Level AA requirements and a number of Level A.
We are working to improve the accessibility compliance of our website for all audiences. Some parts of the Tailte Éireann website are not fully accessible, and we are continuing to address these issues. These may include:
- Some video and audio content may be missing alternatives, captions, descriptions, or text transcripts. These are being reviewed for improvement on a case-by-case basis.
- The site has multiple similar banner landmarks due to the page template.
- There are some elements on the page where the use of role and aria tags are not available due to the nature of the site plugin, therefore affecting the semantic structure of the content.
If any of our content is not easily accessible, please contact us directly (see details below).
Preparation of This Accessibility Statement
This accessibility statement was prepared on 1st March 2023.
We have carried out user testing on the site. We will continue to do this – particularly once we can carry out in-person testing again.
