BBC News Accessibility

The guide used by all members of BBC News development teams to ensure their products meet an excellent standard of accessibility.


Contributions to this guide are welcome! Please submit all contributions as pull requests.


To ensure these documents remain up-to-date and in good condition, the following should be done regularly:

Running the site locally

If you'd like to see your changes locally before committing them, you can get this site running by following these instructions. Note that you'll need Ruby installed for it to run.

  • Clone the repository somewhere by running git clone && cd accessibility-news-and-you.
  • Get all of the dependencies by running bundle install.
  • Run bundle exec jekyll serve. This will watch the files for changes and automatically rebuild.
  • Open in your web browser.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
