Accessibility statement

This is the accessibility statement for the website. The Office of the Chancellor of Justice aims to ensure the accessibility of its website in accordance with the Act on the Provision of Digital Services (306/2019). The statement was prepared on 14 February 2022.

We have assessed the accessibility of the website ourselves. The website service provider has also assessed the accessibility of the site.

The website was published on 7 April 2022.

State of accessibility

The website partly meets the A and AA level requirements for accessibility (WCAG 2.1 or Web Content Accessibility Guidelines). This statement describes the main shortcomings in the accessibility of the website.

Inaccessible website content (based on WCAG criteria)

Link texts

There are shortcomings in the link texts on the website. Not all link texts sufficiently describe the link subject. In addition, not all link texts indicate whether the link will take the user to a file or material provided in a foreign language, for example. The website may also have links that do not work.

Requirement for accessibility not met

  • 2.4.4. Link purpose (in context)

Accordion menus

Accordion menus that can be clicked open and closed are used in sections such as the Frequently Asked Questions page. When users open the accordion menus and move the focus using their keyboard, screen reader users may not be taken to the content of the opened accordion menu but, instead, to the next closed accordion element.

Requirement for accessibility not met

  • 1.3.2 Meaningful sequence
