Accessibility statement for visitjyvaskyla.fi

  • This accessibility statement applies to the website https://visitjyvaskyla.fi
  • This report was prepared / updated on 15 September 2020.
  • This is a self-assessment of the accessibility of the service, making use of accessibility evaluation tools provided by Siteimprove.

The accessibility status of the online service

The website visitjyvaskyla.fi is partially compliant with accessibility requirements.

Visit Jyväskylä is committed to ensuring the accessibility of its websites as stipulated by the Act on the Provision of Digital Services. The website will be completely redeveloped in 2020. The first version of the new, fully accessible website will be made available in December 2020.

The current website was first launched in 2014 and its underlying technology has reached the end of its service life. For this reason, fully fixing the accessibility issues listed below is partially impossible with the present technological backend, or fixing them would be prohibitively expensive to the organization. These issues will be remedied on the new website in December 2020.
