1.1 Compliance status

The website is partially compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA standard. Non-compliance and exemptions are listed below.

1.2 Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:

1.2.1 Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Perceivable: Insufficient contrasts

In some areas of the website the contrasts are insufficient, so it might be challenging for users with impaired eyesight to see and distinguish texts, backgrounds, and elements. This fails WCAG success criteria 1.4.3 and 1.4.11 (Contrast (Minimum), Contrast (Enhanced), Non-text Contrast).

Our aim is to build a feature which adjusts the contrast or changes the Voimaperheet theme in a way that fulfils the contrast requirement during 2022. When publishing new content, we make sure that the contrasts fulfil the accessibility requirements.

Perceivable: All feature buttons do not have a text alternative

The buttons for the theme listings, which are used to access the content, have no text alternatives. This means that screen readers are unable to interpret the function of the button correctly.

The icons for the “next” and “back” buttons on the theme page have no alt-text.

Accessibility requirements which are not met

Operable: Heading labels missing on content page
