Non-compliance with the legal requirements

Problem when using with reduced vision and reduced colour vision

  • Some components and graphics on the website do not have sufficient contrast, which causes problems for users with reduced vision. [WCAG 1.4.11(AA)]

Problem with personal text settings

  • Some components are shown via pop-ups or hovering. These components can be difficult to perceive if the user has magnified the page. [WCAG 1.4.13(AA)]

Problem with keyboard navigation

  • Some features in forms are difficult to reach using keyboard navigation.[WCAG 2.1.1(A)]

Problem when using access aids

  • Some words and phrases are in languages other than Swedish on the website, which is not picked up by screen reader tools. [WCAG 3.1.2(AA)]

How we tested the website

The Swedish Research Council asked an external actor to carry out an independent review of Expertsvar.se. The review scrutinised a number of representative pages and important features. The review was delivered in the form of a report on 07 January 2019. The Swedish Research Council tasked another external actor to make corrections. This actor made and reviewed the corrections, and delivered them on 10 December 2019. Ahead of the delivery of these corrections, the Swedish Research Council also carried out its own testing.

The main reasons why accessibility problems still remain on Expertsvar.se are that the problems are either of a type that requires major resources to correct, or of a type that we do not yet know how best to correct.

It is our ambition to have corrected all known accessibility problems no later than 31 December 2025.

New features and other factors that can create accessibility problems are reviewed continuously by the Swedish Research Council.

The website was published in 2015.

The accessibility report was updated most recently on 14 July 2020.
