The accessibility of the website

The website meets most of the requirements for accessibility and does not contain any critical accessibility-related deficiencies.

The following parts are still not completely accessible:

  • Some links are not completely accessible, especially on the mobile version of the website.
  • PDF documents that were published on the website before September 2019 were not published in an accessible format. We will update the accessibility of these documents in connection with other updates to the website.

The website has been created using the state’s common publishing platform YJA, which is based on the Liferay platform. Valtori is responsible for the development and maintenance of the platform. Accessibility evaluations have been conducted in 2018 and 2019 for the websites that have been published on the YJA 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.

The contents and visual layout of the website have been planned in accordance with accessibility regulations.
