govuk-wuj-network-analysis: Writing accessible documentation

You can build this project's documentation into a website using Sphinx. If you work in the public sector, and build a website, by law the website must be accessible.

The full name of the accessibility regulations is the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

It came into force on 23 September 2018, and all public sector bodies have to meet these requirements unless exempt. GOV.UK has further details to help you understand the impact of the 2018 requirements

We use the following checklist to determine how accessible our documentation is, when rendered as a website using Sphinx.

This checklist was created by the Government Digital Service (GDS) technical writing team with help from the GDS accessibility team. We then draft a suitable accessibility statement for the project; an example is available on GOV.UK.
