The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

We plan to complete further accessibility work on the Mersey Ferries online shop by December 2021.
We are updating PDF documents and application forms, so customers can apply via the internet for Mersey Ferries services. This will be in place by October 2021.
PDFs and other documents
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services. By October 2021, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018, if they’re not essential to providing our services. For example, we do not plan to fix the Spot the Difference activity sheet, which is featured on the Mersey Ferries blog section.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
We do not plan to add caption, text and audio descriptions to pre-recorded videos published before 23 September 2020, as they are exempt from the regulations.
