This accessibility statement applies to the website

Measures for barrier-free accessibility

The Montanuniversität Leoben takes the following measures to ensure barrier-free accessibility of its website: With the help of a central content management system and a monitoring tool, attempts are made to ensure the highest possible level of accessibility. All technical developments are checked for accessibility before they are used.

Compliance status according to the requirements

The Montanuniversität Leoben is currently in the process of renewing its website. Accessibility is an accompanying and trend-setting topic. For this reason, the assessment of (not) accessible content may continually change in the near future.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is only partially or not accessible for the following reasons:
• Alt attributes for images, tables, controls and graphics are sometimes missing.
• There is a lack of information in plain language.
• There may be errors in the heading hierarchy or links may be unclear.
• Not all documents are barrier-free accessible.
• Full audio descriptions, full-text alternatives, or subtitles are not available in all embedded videos.
• When text is enlarged, content and functionality may be partially lost.
• There may be deviations from the required color contrast in graphics and images.
• The required color contrast is only partially achieved for texts and backgrounds.

Due to the enormous amount of data, the age of many pages and documents, the complexity, as well as the dynamics of the website, we cannot design all content and services barrier-free. However, we are continuously working on improving our website.

Preparation of this Accessibility Statement

This statement was created on September 27, 2023.
The declaration was created on the basis of a self-assessment carried out by the Montanuniversität Leoben.
Regular self-tests are planned to check websites for compliance with the WCAG 2.1 guidelines.
