Technical information about Resource Booker accessibility
King’s College London is committed to supplying Resource Booker, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018. We work to achieve and maintain WCAG 2.1 AA standards, but it is not always possible for all our content to be accessible.
The vendor Technology One is aware that certain parts of the service are not fully accessible.
- Due to the nature of the interface (presentation of the calendar to book resources) is not possible to resize the screen, although the website has a responsive design that will render the screens correctly for mobile phones, tables or desktops
- The service does not provide a mechanism to book resources using only the keyboard
- The calendar content is not accessible to screen readers

Resource booker does not use PDFs or other documents, it is web-based only.

We have reported all issues listed above (see the technical information section) to the vendor and will work together to make sure that the issues found are fixed in future versions.
