We aim to provide you with a website that is accessible to all, including those with a disability, in particular those with a visual impairment. For this, we use the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.0 (WCAG-2.0) compiled by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) from the World-Wide-Web Consortium (W3C), the organisation that looks after the standardisation of the internet.
The guidelines can be implemented to three, increasingly more compliant levels: A, AA, and AAA. Our intention on this website is to provide you with AA conformance to the guidelines. This means that accessibility is a concrete requirement during the development of this website and is taken into account at every technical level of the system, as well as during the authoring of the content.
- All pages on this website should conform to AA-level (see exceptions),
- NVDA has been used for testing screenreader effectiveness.
We include certain user-interface elements on our website which, due to their technical nature, are difficult or even impossible to conform to the guidelines. On this website, elements explicitly excluded from conformance are:
- The "slider" across the top of the pages.
If you are using this site with the help of assistive technology or depend on accessibility to use this website, we would love to hear your feedback. If you feel that we can improve in any way, please email our technical support directly with your comments: firstname.lastname@example.org.
