Technical information about this website’s accessibility

This website is mainly compliant with the Swedish accessibility regulations and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 level AA. Non-compliant content is listed below.

General issues

  • There are some minor, non-critical HTML validation errors and warnings. We are currently working on fixing this for future updates.
  • We are using a third-party solution for forms. We are aware that this solution is not fully compliant with the accessibility regulations. E.g. we can’t (in code) group check boxes and/or radio buttons and we can’t style native elements to match our own. We are currently looking for alternatives to find the best solution possible.
  • This website is very dynamic and its content is updated on a regular basis. Due to this, the website may for a period of time contain content that is not accessible to you. If you find content that is not fully accessible to you, please let us know. For instructions, see the section ‘What to do if you can’t access parts of this website?’ below.
  • We are currently using an automatically generated sitemap to provide you with links to all the different web pages of the site and a secondary way to navigate. This generated sitemap does not fully explain how the content is organised or named. We are currently looking for alternatives to find the best solution possible.

Issues with usage with screen readers and keyboard navigation

  • The keyboard focus indicator is not visible on some elements. We are currently working on fixing this for future updates.
  • Some web pages may contain empty headings. We are currently working on fixing this for future updates.

Issues with usage with visual impairment

  • The visual cues identifying errors in a form submission may be difficult to seperate from the rest of the form if you have a visual impairment. We are currently working on fixing this for future updates.
