Web Accessibility

Printer-friendly version

Dublin City Council is working towards full compliance with National Disablity Authority (NDA) guidelines for public bodies (equivalent to W3C AA level or higher). We endeavour to make the website www.dublincity.ie accessible to everyone, including people with disabilities.

If you use assistive technology (such as screen readers) and need a version of any document from the Dublin City Council website in an accessible format (such as word), please email accessofficer@dublincity.ie and the document in the format requested shall be provided in so far as this is reasonably practicable.

We use the popular Drupal Content Management System which is committed to ensuring that all core Drupal features conform to W3C AA level.

Although we want the entire site to be NDA compliant, there are some instances where content does not meet these standards. The most prominent of these are listed below - see Accessibility Exclusions.


Accessibility Exclusions

The following content is not compliant to the standards of the NDA:

  •  'Locate a Service' mapping feature
  •  'View live traffic pictures' mapping feature
  •   'Find a planning application' search feature
  •  Voter e-register
  •  Documents:
    • Whilst effort has been made to improve the accessibility of documents (pdfs) on the site, there are some documents that may not be compliant to the standards of the NDA.  If you use assistive technology (such as screen readers) and need a version of any document from the Dublin City Council website in an accessible format (such as word), please email accessofficer@dublincity.ie and the document in the format requested shall be provided in so far as this is reasonably practicable.
