Technical information about the accessibility of the website
This website is partly compatible with the Law on Accessibility to Digital Public Service, due to the flaws described below.
Content that is not accessible
- There are not always alternatives to sound or video. (WCAG 1.2.1)
- Some videos lack subtitles. (WCAG 1.2.2)
There are videos that do not have visual interpretation or text options. (WCAG 1.2.3, 1.2.5)
- We do not always state in the code what role the different parts of a page have. Once we have adjusted this and use the html elements in the right way, we increase the chance of the information being presented correctly regardless of what tools are used by the user. (WCAG 1.3.1)
- In some places the contrast between text and background is not high enough which can make the text difficult to read. (WCAG 1.4.3)
- In some places, problems occur with displaying text when it is enlarged up to 200%. (WCAG 1.4.4)
- The wording in some links is vague. This means that it can be difficult to know where the link directs you if you do not see the context of the link. (WCAG 2.4.4)
- Some forms with input fields lack a clear description. (WCAG 3.3.2)
- Certain element IDs are not unique. This means that the code does not fully validate with the standard. (WCAG 4.1.1)
- There are some tailor-made components that do not function when using tools. (WCAG 4.1.2)
Problems when using PDF files:
- Some PDF documents are not machine-readable.
- Some PDF documents have not been labelled correctly, they can lack headings, titles, etc. This can involve difficulties for people who use screen readers.
We work continuously to reduce these accessibility problems.
How we have tested the website
We have carried out a self-assessment (internal testing) of Lnu.se, in which we have used an accessibility tool test the website.
The latest assessment was carried out on 24 January 2023.
The account was last updated on 26 January 2023.
To request adaptation
As a student, you can request certain digital material to be accessibility-adapted, even if the material is temporarily exempt from the legal requirement. This applies, for example, to material behind login on the MyMoodle learning platform. For the material you are requesting to be adapted, your request must be of a limited scope. As a student, you do not need to explain why you want the adaptation. The university will provide you with feedback within three weeks.
For the university to be able to assist with accessibility adaptations, you must send an email to your faculty on the address below. For us to be able to assist you, please include the following information:
- What course and type of accessibility it concerns
- What material you request to have adapted
- Your contact information
- Contact information for course coordinator
In the subject line, write "Request for deviation from exemption in DOS"
