Assessment of the disproportionate burden

Based on the Website and Mobile Application Accessibility Act (ZDSMA), the Visit Preddvor website will be updated and supplemented to enable all users of the Visit Preddvorwebsite to have greater access to published documents and content.

Visit Preddvor assesses that the organization would incur financial consequences if it were to adjust the entire content to comply with the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications Act (e.g., translate into sign language and/or provide captions or otherwise make appropriate adjustments). The size of the content is significant. Visit Preddvor also considered the internal organization and the type of activities it performs when assessing the disproportionate burden. According to the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications Act, such deviations are allowed based on the assessment of disproportionality, taking into account significant financial consequences, internal organization, and types of activities performed.

The following are the inaccessible contents:

  1. Scanned documents in PDF format: scanned documents 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 entirely readable, especially if the quality of the scan is poor.
  2. Video recordings: Videos are one of the most popular ways to exchange information, but problems can arise when videos are without captions or if control is not optimized. This can make it difficult for people who are deaf or have visual impairments to use videos. Furthermore, if the video is dependent on an external service such as YouTube, accessing the video may be difficult if the service is inaccessible or if there are internet connection issues.
  3. Certain content is transferred from social media (Facebook and Instagram), where accessibility issues may arise if the content that has been transferred from social media is incomplete. For example, text alternatives for images may be missing, or English terms that not all users understand may be used. This can make it difficult for people with special needs to use the content.
  4. Certain content lacks visible focus indicators, which can help users with special needs to more easily track mouse movements on the screen and execute appropriate commands. The lack of visible focus indicators can be a barrier for users with special needs who use screen readers or other assistive technologies.
  5. Opening a new tab or window without alerting the user may surprise users and disrupt their work on the current page. This can be particularly problematic for users with special needs who use screen readers or other assistive technologies.
  6. Links are an important part of the website and should be properly formatted and accompanied by appropriate descriptive text that clearly describes the link's target. If the same link is used for multiple targets, it is important that all targets have the same descriptive text, as this will help users understand where the link will take them. Different descriptive text for links can cause confusion and reduce the accessibility of the website.
  7. To achieve accessibility, it is essential that all elements on the website are properly labelled and described. If the elements on the website lack semantic labels, this can cause confusion for users who rely on these labels to navigate the website. In addition, elements without semantic labels can also affect search engine optimization.
  8. Elements without appropriate colour contrast: Proper colour contrast is an essential aspect of website accessibility. Colour contrast helps users distinguish between different elements on the website and facilitates reading text. If the elements on the website have inappropriate colour contrast, text and other elements on the website can merge and become more difficult to read. This can cause problems for users with visual impairments or colour blindness.
  9. The 'alt' attribute is used to describe images 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. Furthermore, a foreign language in the 'alt.
  10.  Multiple elements: Using too many elements on a website can make navigation difficult for users and reduce their 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.
  11. 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, describing the most important content on the page.
  12.  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 website 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 clicking.
  13.  Missing skip links that allow users to skip long and repetitive content on the website. This is important for users who have reading difficulties, poor vision, or use tools to help them read websites.
  14.  It is important to provide well-organized navigation on the website to enable users to access content more easily. Navigation skipping 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, headers, logos, and the like, and move around the page more quickly.
