FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure makes every effort to make its web application RADAR www.radar-service.eu, accessible without barriers. The legal basis is the German Act on Equal Opportunities for the Disabled (BGG) and the Barrier-free Information Technology Ordinance (BITV 2.0) as amended from time to time.
Status of compliance with the requirements
The RADAR web application is partially compliant with BITV 2.0 due to the points mentioned below. The BITV test was carried out as a self-assessment (92 test steps); part of the test steps have been fulfilled.
Graphics and graphical control elements have alternative texts.
If desired, the application can be operated without a mouse, i.e., only with the keyboard.
Text can be enlarged, except for special features such as displayed menus.
The page layout was structured more clearly.
In addition, we continue to work on improvements on an ongoing basis in order to gradually eliminate any remaining deficiencies, for example, to
define headings and paragraphs consistently
make the keyboard focus clearly visible
optimize the navigation structure (especially for keyboard operation).
Drafting of this declaration on accessibility
This declaration was drafted on July 20, 2021 based on the BITV / WCAG self-assessment (www.bitv-test.de). The following pages were examined during the self-assessment:
• list of data publications or search results
• landing page of a data publication
• login and registration pages
This declaration was last checked on July 20, 2021.
