Innovation Skåne

Accessibility innovationskane.com

Innovation Skåne AB is responsible for this website. We want as many people as possible to be able to use the website. This document describes how innovationskane.com complies with the Swedish Act on the Accessibility of Digital Public Services and handles any known accessibility issues, and how you can report shortcomings to us so that we can fix them.

At present, innovationskane.com has many shortcomings related to accessibility. In 2020, Innovation Skåne decided to create a new website. Work on creating the new website started in the autumn of 2020 and will wrap up in 2021. Known accessibility issues will be resolved by the launch of the new version of innovationskane.com. Resources for accessibility measures will primarily be added to the new website.

Exceptions for unduly onerous adaptation

Innovation Skåne invokes exceptions for unduly onerous adaptation under section 12 of the Swedish Act on the Accessibility of Digital Public Services for the current version of innovationskane.com. We have started work on an upcoming version of the website to replace the existing version. The upcoming version will satisfy the applicable accessibility requirements. We need to devote our resources to this work.  Given our size and access to both human and financial resources, the nature of our business and the data presented on the website, it is unduly onerous to also devote resources to adapting the current website when this will be replaced by a new version in the near future. 

Report website accessibility shortcomings

We constantly strive to improve website accessibility. If you notice any issues that we have not described on this page, or if you believe that we are not satisfying the requirements of the Act, please contact us.

Review method

To assess the accessibility of the website, the website has been reviewed by an external team from Länge Leve Kommunikation, who have made self-assessments using the WCAG guidelines based on various functional variations. We have reviewed selected pages and features on the website that have been allowed to represent the website as a whole. The work has been done manually using various tools.

No complete mechanical test of the entire website’s code has been performed.
