Accessibility policy of the website 

We aim to ensure that the website is accessible to all users in accordance with the Act on the Provision of Digital Services.

The evaluation of the website’s accessibility is based on our own evaluation that was conducted using the Siteimprove tool. 

The accessibility of the website 

The website largely meets the A and AA level accessibility criteria of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. There are no critical accessibility issues on the website. 

The website has the following issues (the WCAG requirement that is not met is in parentheses)

  • Links are not clearly identifiable; the majority of links are missing a colour tag (1.4.1)
  • Tables are not available in text only (1.1.1)
  • A few links are not available in text only (2.4.4)
  • Attachment files (PDF, Excel, Word) have accessibility issues (1.1.1, 1.3.1, 1.4.3)
  • No accessibility assessment has been made for the website's mobile view

Disproportionate burden

Some of the linked video recordings have been published without subtitles, the target group of these recordings is restricted (1.2.2). 

The website has been created using the state’s common publishing platform YJA. Valtori is responsible for the development and maintenance of the platform. All improvements that focus on common functional issues will be implemented in a centralised manner to ensure that the accessibility of all affected YJA websites can be improved at the same time.

We will monitor and develop the accessibility of the website and update the accessibility of the attachments.
