Technical information about this website’s accessibility

This website is partially compliant with the Swedish accessibility regulations, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non accessible content

  • Some pages and features are not consistently described in links, references and headings.
  • Not all techniques are used in an accessible way. Among other things, our image carousels are not available for users with screen readers, people with cognitive problems or for people with concentration difficulties.
  • Problems using a keyboard:
    • buttons in image carousels cannot be accessed
    • focus is not always visually clear
    • some functions cannot be controlled on mobile phones and large screens
    • there is no shortcut past menus to the main content
  • In certain resolutions, the interface can not be displayed and used without having to scroll in more than one direction.
  • Screenreaders might read the website's mobile menu in the wrong order.
  • Sometimes contrasts between foreground and background colors are insufficient.
  • Some image maps lack text descriptions for both links and images.
  • Link groups and information areas are not always grouped.
  • Screen reader users may experience problems with pages that contain more than one language. Some of the content is then pronounced in the wrong language.
  • Information that is automatically retrieved from external websites is sometimes inaccessible.
  • Some tables and forms are inaccessible to, among others, screen reader users.
  • Some images will not be correctly recognized by screen readers.
  • The website contains links that are difficult to understand without knowing the context, so that it is unclear where the link goes.
  • Some menus may be difficult to use.
  • Screen reader users may experience problems with the website’s search function.
  • Some headers and heading structures are inaccessible.
  • Some lists are coded incorrectly and/or used in a wrong way.
  • Some documents are not fully accessible. 
  • Some videos do not have subtitles. 
  • Some images contain text.
  • Some frames miss a title-attribute which makes it difficult to judge if it’s important or not to enter a frame, especially for screen reader users.

We aim to resolve all known editorial accessibility issues by 31 October 2020. As for known technical accessibility issues, our goal is to resolve these issues by February 2021.
