This Accessibility Statement concerns the JYU Online Courses service, and it was created/updated on 4 July 2023. The service is subject to the Act on the Provision of Digital Services, according to which public online services must be accessible.
We have conducted a self-assessment on the accessibility of the service.
Accessibility status of the digital service
Partially compliant with accessibility criteria.
The website does not yet fully meet the criteria.
Above the course menu there is an empty heading, which is in the service plugin code.
Skipped heading level
Progressing from the H1 level to H3 or H4 level without an intermediate H2 level heading.
- Operable: 1.3.1 Information and relationships
Broken ARIA menu
- Perceivable: 2.1.1 Keyboard (A)
- Operable: 4.1.2 Name, role, value (A)
No link text because the course card functions as a link.
Repetition in titles and links
There are parts on the website where the alternative text is the same as the text indicated by the link. For example, at the bottom the text “University of Jyväskylä”, which takes you to the JYU website. In the course cards the name of the course is used as the link name.
- Operable: 2.4.6 Headings and labels
- Operable: 2.4.4 The purpose of a link (in context)
Very low contrast
When the user has logged in to the service the notifications menu and the messaging drawer are visible in the top of the page. The icon indicating unread messages and notifications has very low contrast.
- Perceivable: 1.4.3 Contrast
