Technical information about this website's accessibility
The University of Birmingham is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
Non accessible content
The following content is not accessible. Details of how to access the content in an alternative format is provided where it is available.
The following problems are relevant to all three editions available on this website.
- The Majuscule edition
- The Vetus Latina edition

The pages in our digital editions which explain the appearance of the transcriptions have a number of colour contrast problems because of the colours used for the display of the transcriptions (see next item).
The digital editions themselves are not accessible. There are many problems including colour contrast problems, the use of colour only for semantics, keyboard navigation and language annotation. These HTML representations are not essential to understanding the data and are automatically generated from TEI XML files. Links to download the TEI XML files are available on the transcription and apparatus download page.
The following problems relate to other areas of this website.
The HTML representations of our manuscript transcriptions are not accessible. There are many problems including colour contrast problems, the use of colour for semantics, keyboard navigation and language annotation. These HTML representations are not essential to understanding the data and are automatically generated from our TEI XML files. Links to download the TEI XML files are available on the transcription and apparatus download page.
The excel file of citations related to Augustine's Text of John by H.A.G Houghton may not be accessible. Much of this information can also be found in our database of citations. You can see the citations of John in Augustines works at this url: https://itsee-wce.birmingham.ac.uk/citations/citation/results/?_advanced=true&biblical_work__identifier=NT_John&work__author__abbreviation=AU. The main difference between the two is that there may be duplication of data in the database as the data is still being cleaned and edited.
Content that is not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
The PDF files of the appendices for A Textual Study of Family 1 in the Gospel of John by Alison Welsby were produced before September 2018 and are therefore not within the scope of the accessibility regulations.
