Technical information about the website’s accessibility

This website is partially compliant with the law on accessibility to digital public services, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non accessible content        

Issues with sight

  • When searching the site, there are some organisations with the same name. This can provide difficulties with the links. The same name leads to different pages.
  • The website uses tooltips to explain words. These tooltips works poorly with screen readers.
  • The website filter loses its focus when users want to make a selection on a category page or select “more choices” in the filter on the home page.

Issues with impaired vision and/or impaired color vision

  • Input field has to weak a contrast between its edge and the background.
  • The website buttons have too weak a contrast on the hover.
  • Some buttons have accidentally lost their hover and/or focus effect.
  • When the page is zoomed in 400%, depending on the screen size, some of the text in the tab menu on the category page can be cut off. This applies to the headings: overview, distribution and comparison.
  • The small circles next to the main heading and the text in the “add comparison” box, which are displayed when a comparison is made, do not make a direct difference in tone.

Issues with reduced mobility

  • Some parts of the interface can be difficult to navigate with a keyboard due to many links. For example, the alphabet menu on listing pages under “Explore aid”.

Issues with cognitive impairment

  • Increased character spacing for better readability can cause the text to cut off in a few places.

It is our ambition to fix all known accessibility problems.
