compatible. In detail:

Incompatibility with accessibility legislation

The contents listed below are not or only partially compatible with the
relevant legal regulations on accessibility:

Easy language and sign language
The use of plain language should be continuously reviewed and optimised. The content is generally written in understandable language. Sign language is not offered.

Keyboard focus and keyboard operability
The keyboard focus on individual elements in the menu and in the page flow is limited. The website can generally be operated using the keyboard. The Language
Switcher is only partially accessible as the function is set up via an external plugin.

Alternative texts for images and graphics
A graphic that has no informative function does not require an alternative text. Graphics without an informative function are, for example, spacers, coloured areas, patterns or purely decorative photos. Such graphics should be labelled with an empty alt attribute (alt=""). In turn, alternative texts should be set for graphics and images. It cannot be ruled out that these are not shown for all graphics.

High-contrast colours and typographic clarity
Text passages highlighted in colour make it easier for non-impaired people to read.
attention and indicate that this is a link or a similar function. For blind or colour-impaired visitors, however, this is not self-evident and cannot be readily understood. However, the contrast values are sufficiently high for information (text and icons) that is conveyed via colour. Brightness contrasts fulfil the specific standards.

Links and PDF documents
The aim is to encourage visitors to the website to grasp the content and provide orientation. Links to external websites or PDFs that open in a new tab can pose a problem. Opening new windows or loading a page can impair the user's orientation. This is particularly true for blind and visually impaired people. They may not realise that the context has changed.

On all pages, external links always open in a new window so that the person is directed to the external website so that it is possible to understand how they ended up there or how to get back to the website. Links and file formats that are made available on the website should be appropriately labelled with a reference to different file formats and should also be able to be opened and accessed without barriers.
The contents of the PDFs are not completely barrier-free.

  • Keyboard shortcuts help you find your way around the website.
  • Alternative access to information is offered via the navigation on the desktop and the mobile version of the website.
  • The navigation elements are consistent and support the understanding at which position and which contexts can be explored.

Evaluation method

The other criteria were checked using the recognised BITV test ( The functionality of page elements was tested in order to determine the current state of accessibility.
