Information on deficiencies in the website’s accessibility
This website is partly in compliance with the Act on Access to Digital Public Services due to the deficiencies described below.
Video recordings on the website (published before 23 September 2020) lack written versions, meaning a transcription or script.
Corrective action: Sound and video recordings published before 23 September will not be provided with alternatives due to a lack of resources. The sound and video recordings published on the website after 23 September will be provided with transcriptions as an alternative.
Sometimes, the website has longer waiting times than is counted as good performance.
Corrective action: A study to improve the performance has been done and an action plan is in place. The ambition is to improve the performance to a fully compliant level during 2023.
Corrective action on accessibility problems
Our ambition is to have resolved all known accessibility problems no later than 31 December 2023.
How we tested the website
Together with the procured web supplier Knowit Experience Linköping, SMTM conducted a self-evaluation of the website based on the checklists provided by DIGG on the website www.webbriktlinjer.se.
Together with Knowit Experience Linköping, SMTM went through the website based on DIGG’s checklists in October 2019. Thereafter, a plan was prepared for the corrective actions that must be implemented for the website to fulfil the requirements in the Act on Access to Digital Public Services.
The development took place on a continuous basis and ordinary procedures for testing and deployment were applied. Due to budget cuts SMTM has not had the possibility to implement all of the corrective actions planned. Some parts will therefore not become accessible until 2023.
In parallel with the technical development work, SMTM worked internally to examine the content on the website and prepare an action plan for the editorial sections and thereafter continuously worked to implement the corrective actions.
The website was published in spring 2016.
