Technical information about the accessibility of the website
This website is partially compliant with the Act on the Accessibility of Digital Public Services, due to the shortcomings described below.
The content described below is not fully accessible in one way or another.
Non-compliance with legal requirements
- On some pages, there are two or more elements that have the same ID value. This can create problems for screen reader users to understand how certain elements on the page are connected. [WCAG 2.1 (A)].
- On a few pages, there are empty container elements. When the container element doesn't contain any required elements, it can be difficult to understand how the content structure and page elements fit together because some roles depend on other roles for context. [WCAG 2.1 (A)].
- On some pages, there are "empty headings", i.e. heading tags without text content. This can cause problems navigating the page for people who use screen readers. [WCAG 2.1 (A)].
- On some pages, the machine-readable label does not match the visible label. This can create confusion for people who use assistive technology. Users who enter data may find it difficult to activate a control if the label displayed on the screen does not match its available name. [WCAG 2.1 (A)].
- Some built-in frames (iframes) lack textual content that summarises its content or purpose. This can create problems for screen reader users to understand how certain elements on the page are connected. [WCAG 2.1 (A)].
- On a few pages, the page zoom feature is limited. This can make it difficult for people with visual impairments to read the text. [WCAG 2.1 (AA)].
- On some pages, the colour contrast between text and background is not high enough. This can make the text difficult to read for people who are colour blind or have low vision. [WCAG 2.1 (AA)].
- Some uploaded documents do not meet the accessibility requirements. This can make it difficult for people who use assistive technology to read the text. [WCAG 2.1 (A & AA)].
- Videos on the web do not have audio descriptions. This makes it difficult for people with visual impairments to access the content. [WCAG 2.1 (A)].
- Some pre-recorded videos don't have subtitles. This can create problems for people with hearing impairments to understand the content. [WCAG 2.1 (A)].
- Some pages contain text in image format. This can create problems for people with hearing impairments to understand the content. [WCAG 2.1 (A)].
