Accessibility issues and efforts to rectify them
Our website currently has inaccessible content, which is constantly being developed to make it accessible.
Issues have been identified in the following areas:
- Label layer hierarchy
- Text alternatives for some images
- Individual PDF files
- A few third-party services, such as the date element in the search form for the events calendar and some functions of the picture gallery
Efforts to develop the technical accessibility of our website are ongoing. For the most significant content pages, we aim to correct the issues as soon as possible.
The website also contains content that is not subject to the legal accessibility requirements. Such content includes videos published before 23 September 2020 that are not subtitled, for example.
