This accessibility statement applies to the website https://evl.fi/en/ and was most recently revised on 8 October 2023. This website falls under the Finnish Act on the Provision of Digital Services, which requires public sector websites to be accessible.
An external expert organisation has assessed the accessibility of the website.
This website is currently only partially compliant with accessibility requirements.
This website is not compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) in the following ways:
Perceivable: Incorrect browsing order
Non-accessible content and insufficiencies in such content
When the website is browsed using a keyboard or some other input device than a mouse, the active section and its pointer should move downward in the correct reading order. When using a keyboard to browse the website, the order currently deviates from the visual order in some places.
Accessibility criteria that are not met:
The image link to the home page disappears when using the enhanced contrast theme. The image link works incorrectly for some users that have selected a larger font size from their browser settings or are trying to enlarge the text size when browsing. When enlarging text only, the link to the home page does not resize.
Some images and images used as links may be missing text alternatives, or the text alternatives do not adequately describe the image.
The use of heading elements on the website is incomplete.
The website contains attachment files (e.g. PDFs) that do not meet accessibility requirements.
The contrast ratio is insufficient in some places where, for example, there is text over images.
On some pages on the website, the same links are included twice: both in the main navigation bar and in the left-hand side navigation bar, which also includes the main navigation.
