What we are doing in response to the European web accessibility directive

Accessibility Product Update

You may have heard about the new EU directive that aims to ensure a high standard of accessibility for websites for Public Sector Bodies. In the UK we’ve seen new regulations on accessibility for websites and mobile applications. At Talis, we work hard to ensure our systems provide the optimal user experience across devices, browsers, and assistive technologies.

To find out more about the UK regulations on accessibility, visit the page here. Here at Talis, we have committed to ensuring we comply within the specified deadlines and in many places exceed them. 

You can read our Accessibility Statement here which explains how accessible our products are and how we meet or exceed the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA.

We are running a webinar on the 9th of October: “Inclusivity and Accessibility in Reading Lists”. You can hear from some of our users who will share what they are doing to enhance services offered with digital learning and teaching resources as well as Jeremy Baines, Head of Product Experience at Talis. Sign up here.

If you have any questions or would like to find out more about accessibility and Talis Aspire, please get in touch by raising a support ticket, or, if you are not a Talis Aspire user, please email
