State of accessibility of the digital service

Fulfils critical accessibility success criteria. Below is a list of the accessibility shortcomings detected.

Grounds for non-compliance

Unreasonable burden. We are constantly working on improving accessibility and repairing the shortcomings. The target schedule for the repairs is spring 2020.

Non-accessible content in the digital service (according to WCAG criteria)

1. Perceivable

The colour scheme of the website does not meet contrast criteria in all areas

The pages contain text that is placed on top of images in some places.

Accessibility criteria that are not met: 1.4.11 Non-text Contrast, 1.4.3 Contrast (minimum)

The functionality of the navigation menus and buttons is insufficient for the screen reader

The navigation menu at the top of the page cannot be perceived with all screen readers. Several buttons (e.g. ‘Filter services’) are invisible to all or some screen readers.

Accessibility criteria that are not met: 1.3.1 Info and Relationships

The text alternatives for images and graphs are insufficient

Significant information is not conveyed in the text alternatives, e.g. in statistics and organisation charts. Detailed text alternatives have been assigned to many purely decorative images.

Accessibility criteria that are not met: 1.1.1 Non-text Content

Statistics only use colours to separate pieces of information from each other

Bar graphs are only distinguishable by colour.

Accessibility criteria that are not met: 1.4.1 Use of Colour

The reflow of the website is lacking

In some cases, the content will spill out of the visible area when zoomed in. The statistics are not enlarged if the user zooms in using the browser.

Accessibility criteria that are not met: 1.4.10 Reflow

2. Operable

The focus indicator of the keyboard is not visible enough

The style of the keyboard focus indicator is the default browser style. In many places, e.g. around a dark button, the focus indicator is not sufficient to indicate the location of the indicator.

Accessibility criteria that are not met: 2.4.7 Focus Visible

There are shortcomings in keyboard usage

The keyboard cannot be used to access menus on statistics pages or social media links. In addition to this, the statistics may trap users who are using the keyboard to navigate.

Accessibility criteria that are not met: 2.1.1 Keyboard, 2.1.2 No Keyboard Trap

Link headings are not descriptive enough

The headings of some generic links do not function out of context, e.g. ‘Read more here’ or ‘Read more’.

Accessibility criteria that are not met: 2.4.7 Focus Visible

PDF files

There may be some shortcomings in the accessibility of some PDF files.

Broken links

Some of the links on the website are broken. The issue is being addressed at the moment.

3. Understandable

Terminology

In places, the site uses terminology that may not be understandable to all users.
