This accessibility statement applies to the website

Status of compatibility with the requirements

This website is partially compliant with compliance level AA of the "Web Accessibility Guidelines - WCAG 2.1" and with the applicable European Standard EN 301 549 V2.1.2 (2018-08) respectively, due to the following incompatibilities and exceptions.

C) The content does not fall within the scope of the applicable legislation.
Predominantly older PDF documents and Office documents are not accessible. For example, PDF documents are not tagged, so they cannot be grasped and used by screen reader users, or can only be used inadequately. This means that WCAG success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role, value) is not met.

Third party content that is not within the control of the Austrian Conference of Universities of Applied Sciences is exempt from Directive (EU) 2016/2102.

This statement was prepared on 29 September 2021.

The assessment of the website's compliance with the WZG for the implementation of the requirements of Directive (EU) 2016/2102 was carried out in the form of a self-test according to WCAG 2.1 in compliance level AA.
