Welcome to the accessibility statement for the Church Council

This accessibility statement applies to the website https://evl.fi/beliefonscreen and was written/updated on 3 September 2020.

We have assessed the accessibility of the website internally.

Website accessibility status

This website is currently only partially compliant with accessibility requirements.

Non-accessible content

This website is only partially compliant with version 2.1 of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) due to the non-compliances listed below

Perceivable: Image without a text alternative

Non-accessible content and insufficiencies in such content

An image lacks an alt attribute that provides the image with a text alternative, which means screen readers read the image location instead of the alt text. We will fix this by 23 September 2020.

Accessibility criteria that are not met
  • 1.1.1 Non-text content
     

Perceivable: Input fields

Non-accessible content and insufficiencies in such content

Input fields lack a label that is explicitly connected to the field and tells users of assistive technology what the purpose of the field is. This applies particularly to the website’s search field. We will fix this as soon as possible. (Also WCAG 3.3.2 and WCAG 4.1.2.)

Accessibility criteria that are not met
  • 1.3.1 Info and relationships
     

Perceivable: Content element identifiers

Non-accessible content and insufficiencies in such content

The website includes content elements that do not have unique identifiers. We will fix this as soon as possible. (See also WCAG 4.1.1.)

Accessibility criteria that are not met
  • 1.3.1 Info and relationships
     

Perceivable: Underlined text

Non-accessible content and insufficiencies in such content

The website uses the ‘u’ element to underline text, when underlining should only be used to denote links. We will fix this as soon as possible and use a CSS style sheet for all formatting.

Accessibility criteria that are not met
  • 1.3.1 Info and relationships
     

Perceivable: Formatting content in HTML

Non-accessible content and insufficiencies in such content

The website content is partially formatted using HTML code instead of a CSS style sheet. We will fix this as soon as possible.

Accessibility criteria that are not met
  • 1.3.1 Info and relationships
     

Perceivable: Use of the ‘bold’ element

Non-accessible content and insufficiencies in such content

The website uses the ‘bold’ element to emphasise text instead of the ‘strong’ element. We will fix this as soon as possible.

Accessibility criteria that are not met
  • 1.3.1 Info and relationships br />  

Perceivable: Use of the ‘i’ element

Non-accessible content and insufficiencies in such content

The website uses the ‘i’ element for icons. We will fix this as soon as possible.

Accessibility criteria that are not met
  • 1.3.1 Info and relationships
     

Perceivable: No content has been added to landmarks

Non-accessible content and insufficiencies in such content

The website uses HTML5 sectioning elements or WAI-ARIA landmarks, but not for all content. Those using assistive technology may experience problems navigating the page and lose control over the content flow. We will fix this as soon as possible.

Accessibility criteria that are not met
  • 1.3.1 Info and relationships
     

Perceivable: Headings

Non-accessible content and insufficiencies in such content

The website has pages that lack a main heading that tells screen readers and search engines what the main topic of the page is. We will fix this as soon as possible.

Accessibility criteria that are not met
  • 1.3.1 Info and relationships
