Latest updates from the digital communications team and useful articles and resources relating to digital best practice for December 2020.

T4v8 update

On Thursday 19 November, we updated T4v8 to version 8.3.16. This new version provides a number of bug fixes and minor enhancements.

WordPress accessibility

We have continued to switch St Andrews WordPress sites to use designs that meet accessibility standards. A few sites are more complex and need more time to change their design.

In the meantime, we aim to have a link to an accessibility statement on all WordPress sites hosted on wp.st-andrews.ac.uk by the end of the year.

Video accessibility

We have rolled out additional changes to the way videos are embedded online. Using designated content types, YouTube videos on our website use the privacy (no cookie) embed mode and now support transcripts. All videos must include transcripts to meet legal accessibility standards. You can find out more about how to write a transcript on our caption standards page.
