State of accessibility

Accessibility is based on the internationally valid Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) at conformity level AA and the European standard EN 301 549, version 3.2.1. In addition, the international standard PDF/UA-1 is observed for PDF documents.

The website is largely barrier-free according to the above-mentioned guidelines, but not yet completely barrier-free. To support accessibility, there is a contrast switch in the head area. This increases the color contrast of text and image and thus the readability of the content. 

Non-accessible content

Embedded Youtube videos

However, the videos are available on the official YouTube channel of the web portal operator at: once again in the normal YouTube player, including its accessibility features.

Order form

Five of the course flyers offered for download (No. 1, 2, 5, 8 and 9) are not yet available as barrier-free pdf documents. As soon as these flyers are reissued, there will also be a barrier-free pdf for them.
