Adapting the website

Accessibility has been a keyword in the development of the website. As the site develops further, the requirements of people with special needs will be accommodated as far as possible.

Adaptation under the WCAG

The website is adapted for groups with special needs in accordance with the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) guidelines and the requirements of the WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines).

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 are directed at all providers of web content and show how it can be made more accessible for people with disabilities. The primary objective of the WCAG is to enhance accessibility for this group.

A guide to 24/7 e-government issued by the Swedish Agency for Administrative Development contains recommendations on how the World Wide Web Consortium/Web Accessibility Initiative (W3C/WAI) and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 should be applied.

The content is validated

The content of the websites is validated XHTML 1.0 Strict, and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) 2.0. The website has a fluid design, which means that all proportions are relative to the text size used. The websites follow the guidelines laid down in Vägledningen 24-timmarswebben (National guidelines for public sector websites).

Customise the website

You can customise the website's design by changing the text size, font, spacing and contrast preferences. You can find the function via the Accessibility link on the website's header.

Listen to the content

The website offers speech synthesis. This means that you can have the text read out by a synthetic voice if you like. Speech synthesis can be accessed via the Listen link on the website's header.
