Phase 3 – Leave no one behind! Declaration of Conformity on Accessibility

Guidelines for Accessible Web Content

The project website was designed and developed taking into account the requirements of persons with disabilities. This includes persons with visual, hearing, mobility and learning impairments. Developing this website, we aimed at meeting the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 standard level AA to AAA in order to maintain the accessibility of the content.

WCAG is a technical standard, published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in order to guide authors and designers of websites during the creation of an accessible website.

Reporting a Problem Concerning Accessibility on the Web

Picture-alt-text and Accessibility

We only use alt-texts if a picture conveys necessary information for the purpose of our website, such as info-graphics. If a picture is merely used as means of decoration we do not use any alt-texts in order to not distract users from the necessary information on our website.

You also have the option to change the contrast and font size on the meta-level. Please note that we offer a project description formulated in easy to read language (German).
