The Mozart & Material Culture website is a source of documented Mozart’s engagement in everyday life, such as family correspondence, objects that Mozart owned, and related illustrations.
The website is designed, developed and maintained by King's Digital Lab (KDL) and we have made an effort to make the content accessible and/or offer accessible alternatives to all audiences.
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;
- skip to the main content when using a screen reader;
- 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 have 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.

- Link text is used for multiple different destinations (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 A standard);

Technical information about this website's accessibility
King’s Digital Lab is committed to making its websites accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018. If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we are not meeting accessibility requirements, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This website is fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
The SiteImprove Accessibility Checker plugin indicates that the link text is used for multiple destinations which does not comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. The issue was caused by the external links where ‘click here’ was used, the footnote references in text and the footnotes listed at the bottom of the page which should have the same indicators. Aria-labels, as a solution, could not be embedded since text is added via a third-party content management system, Wagtail, which does not allow adding aria-labels.
In addition, the Accessibility Checker indicates that the “Bold" tag used to format text expecting a semantic <strong> tag instead. The <b> tag is embedded through the Wagtail richtext editor and cannot be controlled, unless the editor is customised.
In terms of accessibility compliance, KDL will consider function and resources; the estimated costs and benefits for us in terms of the website audience with disabilities. and the frequency of use and lifespan of this website.
