Technical information about this website’s accessibility

This website is partially compliant with the Swedish accessibility regulations, due to the non-compliances listed below.


Non accessible content

The content that does not comply with the accessibility regulations are:

  • Some form fields do not have labels and therefore do not comply with WCAG 1.1.1 (A) which states "describe with text all content that is not text"
  • The header contains an empty link. It therefore does not comply with WCAG 2.4.4 (A), which states "write clear links".
  • Some adjacent links go to the same URL. It therefore does not comply with WCAG 2.4.4 (A), which states "write clear links".
  • Some header images lack alternative text. They therefore do not comply with WCAG 1.1.1 and WCAG 2.4.4 (A), which states "describe with text all content that is not text" and "write clear links".
  • The web site has a tab-index attribute with  a positive value. It therefore does not comply with WCAG 2.4.3 (A) which states “make a logical tab order” so that you can navigate easily down the page
  • Our web site contains PDF files that are not accessible.

 It is our ambition to fix all known accessibility problems by 1 February 2021.

 

Disproportionate burden

The Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies invokes an exemption for disproportionate burden in accordance with § 12 in the accessibility regulations for the content described below.

Most of the non-accessible content listed above is due to the content management software (Drupal 7) and not in the hands of the Centre. An updated web site using Drupal 8 will be published later this year/beginning of next year and these issues will then be fixed.

 

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

The content described here is not fully accessible, but is exempted according to § 2 of the ordinance (2018: 1938) on accessibility to digital public service

  • Some documents published before 23 September 2018.
