Digital accessibility

We want this website to be accessible to as many people as possible.

Accessibility of Studyinsweden.se.

Studyinsweden.se is managed by the Swedish Institute. We want as many people as possible to to be able to use this website, and this page describes how Studyinsweden.se complies with the accessibility regulations, any known accessibility issues, and how you can report issues so that we can fix them.

How accessible is this website?

The website was relaunched on 15 June 2020 with a focus on accessibility. This website is mainly compliant with the Swedish accessibility regulations (link in Swedish) and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 level AA. But we know that some parts of this website aren’t fully accessible right now.

We’ve described the content that is, in one way or another, not fully accessible in the following ways:

  • All HTML does not validate. We are currently working on fixing this and expect this to be done in October 2020.
  • The website’s startpage contains text that updates automatically and there is no mechanism for the user to pause or stop it other than scrolling past it. – This will be fixed in October 2020.
  • On the startpage there is a header that partially disappears out of the window when the display is zoomed to 200%. – This will be fixed in October 2020.
  • There is no search functionality on the website. – A search functionality will be implemented in Q4/2020.
  • There are headlines with incorrect nesting. – This will be fixed in October 2020.
  • There are multiple issues with the feedback widget. – This will be fixed in October 2020.

We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems that aren’t listed on this page or if we’re not meeting the requirements of the accessibility regulations, please contact us to report issues and let us know about the problem. In October 2020 we will even implement a direct contact form to report issues.
