About channel4.com

What is Channel 4's commitment to online accessibility?

Channel 4 takes its commitment to online accessibility very seriously. Our policy is to ensure this website meets recognised international standards for accessibility to ensure it is accessible to all. We are fully committed to ensuring this website meets the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (opens in a new window) (WCAG 2.0) to AA standard to ensure people with disabilities are not excluded from accessing information and services. To this end, we work closely with the Digital Accessibility Centre (opens in a new window) to ensure the accessibility of all Channel 4 websites, including detailed testing by disabled people using a range of assistive devices such as screen readers. Whilst Channel 4 strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.

Access Services: We are committed to providing subtitles on as much of our All 4programming as possible. We are also looking into the providing more programmes with audio description on All 4 content in the future, We are not currently able to provide subtitles on short clips but are investigating the possibility of providing this when it becomes feasible to do so.

Accessibility challenges: As an innovative company working in broadcasting we are always looking at new ways to enhance and develop our websites. As part of this we will ensure we think about the accessibility of any new technology we use. There may be some instances where we display video players, advertisements and third party applications that are out of our control and therefore Channel 4 cannot guarantee accessibility of these. Where possible we work with our partners to rectify these issues with the aim of enhancing the experience of all our users.

Feedback: If you would like to comment about the accessibility of this site please send an email to accessibility@channel4.com
