Detailed information on technical accessibility

  • In some parts, the contrast ratio is not sufficient between text and its background. (WCAG 1.4.3)
  • Keyboard focus is not visible in all elements on the website. (WCAG 2.4.7)
  • The location of the bread crumb trail differs on some web pages: on some pages it is before the main heading and on some pages it is after it. (WCAG 3.2.3)
  • There is a Skip to Main Content -link, but it does not take the user to the main content. (WCAG 2.4.1)

  • Some page titles are not descriptive. (WCAG 2.4.2)
  • Language is not marked correctly in some parts of pages. (WCAG 3.1.2)
  • The website has some unnamed buttons and landmarks and other elements with undescriptive names. There are also numerous buttons on the website, which do not announce their status to assistive technologies. There are some headings, which have not been marked as such in the HTML code or which can’t be interpreted as headings with assistive technology. Also, some texts have been marked with a heading tag even though they are semantically not headings. Website has some form fields which give the user erroneous instructions and some form fields do not have the label programmatically attached to them. Some links are executed in a way that prevents assistive technologies from reaching all information related to those links, instead e.g. a screen reader repeats the link text several times. (WCAG 1.3.1, WCAG 4.1.2)

  • There are some elements on the website which cannot be accessed with a keyboard. In the mobile website, screen reader user’s focus may become trapped, and the user must touch the screen in order to escape the trap. (WCAG 2.1.1, WCAG 2.1.2)
  • Some pages load unexpectedly and without a warning when the user uses certain elements. (WCAG 3.2.2)
  • The webstore’s main navigation has some parts which appear on hover, but they cannot be controlled at all. Their appearance is not announced to screen readers. (WCAG 1.4.13)
  • There are some parts on the website which are not completely visible when the user zooms the content to 200%. (WCAG 1.4.4)
  • HTML code does not comply with specification. Some PDF files are not tagged and the reading order is not defined. (WCAG 4.1.1)
