Accessibility statement for the socialhousingfestival.eu website
This is the evaluation regarding socialhousingfestival.eu and was written / last updated on 22.07.2020 / 28.04.2021.
Internal assessment of accessibility of the website has been made by The Housing Finance and Development Centre of Finland (ARA).
How accessible is the website?
This website largely meets the accessibility criteria required by law (WCAG criteria 2.1, A and AA level). Problems in accessibility of the website are described in more detail below.
Content that is not yet accessible:
- The audio of the video shown on the website doesn’t describe the content of the video thoroughly. The video was originally commissioned in 2019 and this version shown on the website is now an update of the original. We’ve updated the date of the festival which was postponed because of the covid-19 pandemic. Fixing of the video’s audio to the original version would impose a disproportionate burden on ARA. We will take accessibility requirements into account when commissioning new videos.
- Some of the website’s contents are not operable through a keyboard interface. The submission buttons on the forms used on the website cannot be used with keystrokes. This also applies to the website’s menu icon, which cannot be opened without a mouse. (WCAG 2.1.1 Keyboard)
- The website contains ambiguous links. The purpose of some of the links present on the website may be difficult to determine. (WCAG 2.4.4 Link Purpose (In Context))
- The language is not set in the forms. The pages that contain forms do not have a language set. (WCAG 3.1.1 Language of Page)
