Accessibility

Aalto University’s phoenix-h2020.eu (PHOENIX) website is subject to the EU’s accessibility directive, the aim of which is to ensure equality in a digitalized society and set uniform requirements for accessibility.

The PHOENIX website was launched in November 2019. The site’s current accessibility standard is WCAG 2.1, level AA. The requirements of the Directive have been taken into account in the development of the website, and the work continues. The information in this summary is based on self-assessment.

Aalto University is committed to observing accessibility standards. The following measures are implemented in order to achieve this goal:

  • accessibility is part of our mission statement,
  • accessibility has been taken into account in the university practices,
  • a member of staff has been appointed to be responsible for accessibility at the university.

Aalto University’s objective is to maintain a website that is technically accessible and understandable in terms of its contents and that is clear and easy to use for all types of users.

The PHOENIX website largely meets the requirements for accessibility. The website requires further improvements, however, in the following areas:

  • image descriptions (alt texts)

If you notice any deficiencies regarding the accessibility of the site, please provide feedback to us through our contact page.
