Technical information about website accessibility

This website is partially compliant with level AA of the standard Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, version 2.1external link. The content that is not accessible is described below.

Problems for individuals with impaired vision or blindness

  • WCAG 1.2.3 (A) and 1.2.5 (AA): There is no audio description of video recordings or other alternatives.
  • WCAG 1.1.1 (A): There is no description for any content that is not text. This means that your accessibility aid cannot identify the title of the YouTube videos that appear on the website.
  • WCAG 2.4.3 (A): The tabbing order is not logical when you navigate sequentially through our pages.
  • WCAG 1.3.1 (A): Some information is missing from the computer code about the role of the different elements of a page. On the website, pagination is not wrapped in a <nav> (navigation) element, which means that your accessibility aid cannot correctly identify navigation menus.
  • WCAG 4.1.3 (AA): Accessibility aids cannot display messages that are not in focus. This means that your search suggestions cannot be read aloud when you use the site’s search function, and that you need to actively leave the search box to have the results read aloud.

Our goal is for formas.se to not present any accessibility issues, and we are actively working on fixing those found on the website.
