Supervision

The Agency for Digital Government is responsible for supervising the Swedish law governing accessibility to digital public services (Lag (2018:1937) om tillgänglighet till digital offentlig service). If you are not satisfied with how we handle your comments, you can contact the Agency for Digital Government to let them know.

Content that is not accessible

This website does comply in part with the law governing accessibility to digital public services, due to the problems described below.

Non-compliance with the legal requirements

  • The structure of the website is not entirely logical, which may cause problems to users who navigate via headings. [WCAG 1.3.1(A)]

Problem when using with reduced vision and reduced colour vision

  • The text magnification is limited if the user sets font size in the browser. However, the text can be magnified using a zoom. [WCAG 1.4.4(AA)]
  • Some design elements on the website have low contrast, which may cause problems for users with reduced vision. [WCAG 1.4.11(AA)]

Problem when using access aids

  • The translation of the website is not fully functional. For persons using screen reader tools, this means the screen reader reads English with Swedish pronunciation. [WCAG 3.1.2(AA)]

How we tested the website

The Swedish Research Council asked an external actor to carry out an independent review of TidningeCurie.se. The review scrutinised a number of representative pages and important features. The review was delivered in the form of a report on 19 December 2018. The Swedish Research Council tasked another external actor to make corrections. This actor made and reviewed the corrections, and delivered them on 10 December 2019. Ahead of the delivery of these corrections, the Swedish Research Council also carried out its own testing.

The main reasons why accessibility problems still remain on TidningenCurie.se are that the problems are either of a type that requires major resources to correct, or of a type that we do not yet know how best to correct.

It is our ambition to have corrected all known accessibility problems no later than 31 December 2025.

New features and other factors that can create accessibility problems are reviewed continuously by the Swedish Research Council.

The website was published in August 2016.

The accessibility report was updated most recently on 27 December 2019.
