Barrier-free accessibility

The Seefeld Tourist Board strives to make its website blog.seefeld.com accessible in accordance with the Tyrolean Anti-Discrimination Act implementing Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 October 2016 on barrier-free access to the websites and mobile applications of public sector bodies (OJ L 327, 2.12.2016, p. 1).

This accessibility statement applies to blog.seefeld.com.

Status of compatibility with the requirements

This website is partially compatible with the main criteria of the BITV/WCAG self-assessment (https://webtest.bitv-test.de/selbstbewertung/) due to the following incompatibilities. The following were checked

– General requirements

– Text alternatives

– Time-based media

– Document titles

– Alternative texts for graphics

– Headings

– Contrasts

– Enlargeability

– Keyboard usability and focus

– Forms

– Moving content

– Videos with subtitles

– Readability

– Documentation


Non-accessible content

The content listed below is not accessible for the following reasons:

Incompatibility with accessibility regulations

Alternative text is missing for some images in the teaser, making this information inaccessible to screen reader users. This means that the WCAG success criterion of “non-text content” is not met. We plan to add correct alternative text to all non-decorative images. All new images will be published together with alternative texts.

For icon fonts, the link target (link, function in the title tag) is sometimes missing, so that the link targets are not accessible for screen reader users. We plan to make all alt and title texts for icons static.

Using the website via keyboard navigation could lead to occasional problems, as the [id] attributes to active, focusable elements are not unique. We plan to fix this as part of regular maintenance.

For various elements, the minimum contrast requirements of 4.5:1 are not met, which makes it difficult or impossible for people with visual impairments to recognise and read content. Problems occur, for example, in the following areas:

– Blog entries

– footers

– teasers

We intend to fix this gradually as part of ongoing maintenance.

If the website is used without colours, links on the blog page or in the headlines are not easily recognisable. We will check this point and implement it if necessary.

In the Consent Management Tool, the check point “Keyboard usability and keyboard focus” is not completely fulfilled. The focus in the Consent Management Tool is not visible. We plan to fix this with the support of the manufacturer of the Consent Management Tool.

The embedded videos do not contain a description. We intend to add a general description to new videos as they are created, provided this is commercially viable.

The search box is not labelled on the side or top. As part of regular maintenance, we will check to what extent this can be implemented.


Creation of this Accessibility Statement

This declaration was created on 08.02.2022.

Blog.seefeld.com was reviewed.

Individual page contents are regularly checked by the web editors when new content is published.

Enforcement procedure

If you do not receive a satisfactory response from the above contact option, you can turn to the Ombudsman’s Office for Accessible Internet and Mobile Applications of the Federal Province of Tyrol by means of a complaint.

The complaint will be examined to determine whether it is a violation of the provisions of § 14b TADG 2005 (Tyrolean Anti-Discrimination Act 2005) by organs of the Seefeld Tourist Association.

If the complaint is justified, the ombudsman’s office makes recommendations for action to the Seefeld Tourist Board and proposes measures to eliminate the deficiencies at hand.
