Assessment of disproportionate burden for the website
Based on the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications Act., the Visit Preddvor website will be updated and supplemented to enable all users of the Visit Preddvor website to have greater accessibility to published documents and content.
Visit Preddvor has assessed that there would be financial implications for the institution if it were to adapt the entire content appropriately (translate it into sign language and/or provide subtitles or otherwise adapt it in accordance with the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications Act.), as the volume of content is large. In addition to significant financial implications, Visit Preddvor also considered its internal organization and type of activities performed when assessing disproportionate burden, and complies with the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications Act., which allows for these deviations based on the assessment of disproportionality and on the basis of this Accessibility Statement.
The following are the inaccessible content:
- Scanned documents in PDF format are digital versions of physical documents that have been scanned and saved in PDF format. One of the most common problems is that scanned documents are not always completely legible, especially if the scanning quality is poor.
- Videos are one of the most popular ways of exchanging information, but problems can arise when videos are without subtitles or if control is not optimized. This can make it difficult for people who are deaf or visually impaired to use videos. In addition, if a video is dependent on an external service such as YouTube, access to the video may be difficult if the service is inaccessible or there are internet connection problems.
- Certain content is transferred from social networks (Facebook and Instagram), where there may be accessibility issues if the content transferred from social networks is incomplete. For example, text alternatives for images may be missing, or English terms may be used that not all users understand. This can make it difficult for people with special needs to use the content.
- Certain content lacks a visible focus indicator, which can help users with special needs to better track mouse movements on the screen and perform appropriate commands. The lack of a visible focus indicator can be a barrier for users with special needs who use screen readers or other assistive technologies.
- Opening a new tab or window without warning the user can surprise users and disrupt their work on the current page. This can be a particular problem for users with special needs who use screen readers or other assistive technologies.
- Links are an important part of the website and must be properly formatted and equipped with appropriate descriptive text that clearly describes the link's destination. If the same link is used for multiple destinations, it is important that all destinations have the same descriptive text, as this will help users understand where the link will take them. If links have different descriptive text, this can cause confusion and reduce website accessibility.
- To achieve accessibility, it is important that all elements on the website are properly tagged and described. If elements on the website are without semantic tags, this can cause confusion for users who rely on these tags to navigate the website. In addition, elements without semantic tags can also affect search engine optimization.
- Elements without appropriate color contrast: An important aspect of website accessibility is appropriate color contrast. Color contrast helps users distinguish between different elements on the website and makes reading text easier. If elements on the website have inappropriate color contrast, text and other elements on the website may merge and become harder to read. This can cause problems for users with visual impairments or color blindness.
- The 'alt' attribute is used to describe an image and is important for users who have difficulty displaying images. A foreign language in this attribute makes it difficult for users who do not speak that language to understand the image. In addition, a foreign language in the 'alt' attribute can affect website optimization for search engines, as they may incorrectly understand the content of the image. Therefore, it is important to use language in the 'alt' attribute that is understandable to the target audience and helps to understand the content of the image.
- Content with too many elements: Using too many elements on a website can make navigation difficult for users and reduce the user experience. Too many elements can also slow down page loading, which can negatively affect the site's positioning on search engines. Therefore, it is important to use an appropriate number of elements that are necessary for presenting the content.
Therefore, it is important to use language in the 'alt' attribute that is understandable to the target audience and helps to understand the content of the image.
- Multiple elements containing <h1>: Using multiple elements containing <h1> can make it difficult to understand the structure of the website and reduce the user experience. In addition, this can also affect the optimization of the website for search engines, as they may misunderstand the hierarchy of headings. Therefore, it is recommended to use only one <h1> element on the website that describes the most important content on the page.
- Links and elements without descriptive text: Links and other elements without descriptive text can make it difficult for users to understand where they will click. This can cause confusion and frustration for users, which can lead to a lower number of conversions and increased site abandonment rates. Therefore, it is important to describe all links and elements with descriptive text that clearly describes where the user will click and what will happen after the click.
- Missing skip links that allow the user to skip over long and repetitive content on the website. This is important for users who have difficulty reading, have poor eyesight, or use tools to help them read websites.
- It is important to provide well-organized navigation on the website to allow users easier access to content. Navigation skip can be done through links such as "Skip to content" or "Skip to main content" and the like. In this way, users can skip long blocks of repetitive content, such as navigation elements, page headers, logos, and the like, and move around the page more quickly.
