Accessibility of odr.chalmers.se

This website is run by Chalmers University of Technology. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website, and this document describes how odr.chalmers.se complies with the accessibility regulations, any known accessibility issues, and how you can report problems so that we can fix them.

Content that's not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

  • No PDF documents have been tested. See the section on disproportionate burden below.
  • In some cases HTML is used to format the content (WCAG 1.3.1, 1.4.5). The reason for this is the use of old software. We aim to correct this before the end of 2020.

Disproportionate burden

Chalmers University of Technology invokes an exemption for disproportionate burden in accordance with § 12 in the accessibility regulations for the content described below.:

  • The main contents of odr.chalmers.se consist of approximately 13,000 PDF documents (primarily fulltext versions of theses and exam papers). These have been produced and uploaded by students and administrators over a long period of time and by using different versions of Adobe Acrobat and other software.
    To validate and - if needed - adopt these to current regulations is not something that we are able to do at the moment.

How we tested this website

The accessibility of orcid.chalmers.se is based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, and has been tested internally, both manually and by using tools, such as Automated Accessibility Testing Tool (AATT) and Access Monitor Plus. For the testing of colors and contrast, the tool WebAIM Contrast checker has been used.
The latest assessment was made on 7 September 2020.
