  • This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
  • The content listed below is non-accessible because it is not compliant with the Act on the provision of digital services 306/2019.


  • Some schematics either lack a descriptive alternative text or clear indication that a text alternative is available in body text. (WCAG 1.1.1)
  • Dropdown arrows in the main navigation do not have alternative text. (WCAG 1.1.1)


  • Video embeds are missing text alternatives and accessible names. (WCAG 1.1.1)


  • The language of some software tutorials relies on visual characteristics of the software in question, such as location or shape of icons. (WCAG 1.4.8)


  • Highlight boxes have a visual heading which is not marked up as a heading in code. (WCAG 1.3.1)
  • Page titles in the Application section are not always descriptive and do not match the visual heading of the page. (WCAG 2.4.2)
  • The currently focused item can sometimes be hidden beneath the fixed menu bar at the top of the page. (WCAG 2.4.7)
  • There are navigation regions on the page without unique labels, which can make them less useful for users of assistive technology. (WCAG 1.3.1)

The search function has some issues which can make it harder to use for people with disabilities:

  • All the subheadings of search results are incorrectly marked up as main headings (h1’s). (WCAG 1.3.1)

  • The form has no submit button and no prior warning indication for users who are blind that search results are displayed immediately beneath the form. (WCAG 3.2.2)
  • Moving keyboard focus out of the search field causes search results to disappear. (WCAG 1.4.13)
  • The search is announced as a web dialogue to assistive technology users, but does not follow the correct specification for web dialogues, which can make screen reader use confusing. (WCAG 4.1.1.)
  • The search field remains active when navigating the page with arrow keys in a screen reader, which can be an issue for sighted screen reader users. (WCAG 1.4.13)
  • The structure of search results is not available for screen reader users. (WCAG 1.3.1)
