Can University films be more accessible please?

QUESTION:

A new Environmental video seems to have appeared on many of the large screens around the university.

As someone with poor sight, the use of a serif font that changes colour from green, to yellow and then to white renders the video almost impossible for me to follow the narrative.

Can more thought be put into these presentations in future please?

ANSWER:

Thank you very much for raising this issue.

The University is committed to providing an inclusive environment and we try to make sure that all our communications, whether they are paper or electronic, are clearly understood by everyone. We recently issued guidelines for making all types of documents more accessible and any corporate video would follow these guidelines and should be easily accessible for everyone.

We are not sure which video you are referring to but we think it may be one that was developed by a student as part of a project.

We will liaise with the departments responsible for this initiative and make sure that they understand the difficulties that the student design has caused and ensure that any future projects take equality issues into account.

Thank you again for bringing this to our attention. Your feedback means that we can improve our communication to all our staff and students.
