We live accessibility

Our website has been awarded the "WACA - Web Accessibility Certificate Austria" level SILVER by the Hilfsgemeinschaft der Blinden und Sehschwachen Österreichs and TÜV Austria.

Web Accessibility Certificate Austria SILVER

What is silver? This means that our website is compliant with WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) 2.1 AA and meets the requirements of accessibility (according to WCAG 2.1 - AA) to a very high degree for all users. There are only minimal deviations from WCAG, but these are negligible due to the size and complexity of the website.

Practised accessibility according to international standards

The award confirms our high standards of web accessibility according to international criteria. At EU level, Austria has committed itself to implement the guidelines of the Web Accessibility Initiative in order to make new media and technologies accessible to everyone.

A barrier-free web presents content in a variety of ways. This has advantages for all users and also improves results in search engines. In everyday work, this means: clear page structure; images, graphics or videos with alternative text and optimal colour contrasts. The barrier-free adaptation and design of the website can significantly improve user experience.
