The University of Turku is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Web Accessibility Directive of the European Parliament and Council. In Finland, the Web Accessibility Directive is implemented by the act on offering digital services.

This accessibility statement applies to the website.

State of the accessibility of the website

The service is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version (WCAG) 2.1 AA standard, due to non compliance with the accessibility regulations listed below.

  1. Color is used to highlight links within text. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.1 (color). Although these links can be accessed by using keyboard to navigate the website we plant ot improve the accesibility of links when redesigning the website
  2. Visual presentation of text do not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 (contrast). Although the text can already be read in pure text format we plan to improve the accesibility of visual presentation of text when redesigning the website.
  3. When navigating the website with keyboard, contrast of user interface components do not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.11 (non-text contrast). We plan to improve the accessibility of user interface components when redesigning the website.
