Inaccessible website content (based on WCAG criteria)

Shortcomings in the accessibility of PDF files

The website contains pdf files published after 23 September 2018 with accessibility deficiencies. The key accessibility deficiencies in PDF files are described below:

  • There are shortcomings in the use of heading styles. Not all headings have been identified as headings using the heading styles. Heading styles may also have been used in the wrong order or only because of visual appearance. (1.3.1. Info and relationships)
  • Link texts may be incomplete. Link texts may not indicate the type of material the link takes the user to. The files may also have links that do not work. (2.4.4. Link purpose (in context)
  • Not all files necessarily have a programmatic structure, which means that screen reader users do not receive information on the structure and reading order of the file. (1.3.1. Info and relationships)
  • The order in which the files should be read has not been verified. (1.3.2 Meaningful sequence)
  • Screen reader users may not be able to access to the file headers and footers, or these may, in certain cases, confuse the order in which the file should be read. (1.3.1 Info and relationships, 1.3.2. Meaningful sequence)
  • There are shortcomings in the file metadata. For example, a heading may not have been given to file properties. (2.4.2 Page titled)
  • Files may contain tables for which no title line has been determined. Files may also contain charts for which there are no text or table counterpart. Chart colours may not meet contrast requirements. (1.3.1 Info and relationships, 1.1.1 Non-text content, 1.4.1 Use of colour, 1.4.11 Non-text contrast)
  • The site contains scanned PDF files that cannot be accessed by a screen reader. (1.3.1 Info and relationships)
