Accessibility shortcomings

The website is not yet fully compliant.

Perceivable: Shortcomings in the website’s files

The Student Union of Tampere University’s files are accessible on this website’s pages. Files attached to articles that have been published before 4 October 2020, however, might have minor accessibility issues.

Operable: External photo gallery

2.1.1 Keyboard: The following shortcomings were identified when using the keyboard in the external photo gallery

  • There is no visible keyboard cursor on the page.
  • When accessing the photo gallery and opening an image in a modal window, the window cannot be closed from the X and moving from one image to another is not possible with the arrow keys.
  • Search or login elements cannot be accessed using the keyboard.

Disproportionate burden

The articles on the site, which were published between 1 January 2019 and 4 October 2020, have shortcomings in their headings, link texts and text alternatives for images. This applies to around 500 articles.

Articles published after 5 October 2020 will take into account the requirements of the Web Accessibility Directive.

We are committed to improving the accessibility of digital services

The Student Union of Tampere University commissioned Eficode Oy to assess the accessibility of the service in the spring of 2020. Based on the results of the accessibility assessment, the Student Union of Tampere University and the website’s developer DUDE Oy made significant modifications to the website in the autumn of 2020.

This website was published on 1 January 2019 and has been significantly updated in terms of accessibility in the autumn of 2020.
