Accessibility statement of the Finnish Centre for Animal welfare

This accessibility statement applies to the www.eläintieto.fi service. The service is subject to the law on the provision of digital services, which requires public online services to be accessible.

We have evaluated the accessibility of the service ourselves.

The status of the accessibility of the www.eläintieto.fi website

Partially fulfils accessibility requirements.

Inaccessible content

  1. Unreasonable burden

Significant development of our current pages will cause an unreasonable burden. Therefore, until the site’s accessibility work is completed, we apply the unreasonable burden exception according to Article 5 of the Accessibility Directive to the following areas:

  • Text equivalents of images: There are images on the site, and some currently lack a descriptive text equivalent containing sufficient information.
  • Not all links have clearly distinguishable, unambiguous, descriptive names that improve navigation.
  • Not all header elements are directly in descending order.

The following content is inaccessible, as accessibility legislation does not apply to it:

  • PDF, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files published before 23 September 2018.
  • Video content published before 23 September 2020. Please note that the information contained in our videos is often presented on the website, as several of our videos have been produced to clarify the text of a page. In such cases, according to the instructions, it is unnecessary to implement subtitles.
  • Live video broadcasts

Not all functions of the current site have been brought into compliance with the accessibility requirements by the recommended schedule by 23 September 2020 without considerable changes and costs. We will continue to develop the accessibility of our website and implement the necessary changes during 2023.

You can request more information via tiina.kauppinen(at)luke.fi.
