Accessibility statement

The trial team and site developers are committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards.

Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. This site is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.

Specific exceptions to WCAG 2.1 level A or AA compliance

  • There is no site map or table of contents as the linear navigation path through the content (with no method for the user to jump ahead) mitigates against the usefulness of this feature.
  • Third party frameworks used to build this app - e.g. Nuxt - may contain some minor accessibility issues which are not editable by Morph. This includes, for instance, CSS loading animations the duration of which has been to set to longer than 5 seconds. We have attempted to ensure that these exceptions do not impact negatively on user experience.
  • Colour contrast errors relating to the site footer navigation may be picked up by automated accessibility checking tools such as WAVE. These errors relate to the starting state of the effected elements prior to CSS animations occurring. Once the short loading animation is complete the visual appearance of the effected elements complies with WCAG AA colour contrast requirements.


This site has been tested using several screenreaders. We have striven to ensure that all content is accessible to these readers, although we are aware of inconsistencies in how they handle more complex features such as the video transcripts. Please contact Morph if you are unable to access any of the website content using your preferred screenreader.

Navigating using the keyboard only

When navigating inside a page using the keyboard, the page content links do not scroll to the target content. However, focus is applied to the target content so screen readers will be directed to the appropriate content.


We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of this site. Please let us know if you encounter accessibility barriers.
