Status of accessibility

The last review was conducted on 15/04/2021 by the Research Group “Law-Gender-Collectivity”. It was found that parts of the website did not fully comply with the requirements:

  • The main contents of the website and the accessibility statement are not available in easy language and in German sign language.
  • The content cannot be presented in different layouts.
  • The website cannot be used by voice command or pen.
  • Users are not informed if a link opens a new browser window.
  • During the conference, zoom calls will probably not be subtitled.

The removal of these barriers is in progress. Remediation Schedule: 2021.
