Problem when using access aids

  • Search word suggestions and error messages are not accessible to screen reader tools. [WCAG 4.1.3(AA)]

How we tested the website

The Swedish Research Council asked an external actor to carry out an independent review of The review scrutinised a number of representative pages and important features. The review was delivered in the form of a report on 07 February 2019. The Swedish Research Council tasked another external actor to make corrections. This actor made and reviewed the corrections, and delivered them on 02 December 2019. Ahead of the delivery of these corrections, the Swedish Research Council also carried out its own testing.

The main reasons why accessibility problems still remain on are that the problems are either of a type that requires major resources to correct, or of a type that we do not yet know how best to correct.

It is our ambition to have corrected all known accessibility problems no later than 31 December 2025.

New features and other factors that can create accessibility problems are reviewed continuously by the Swedish Research Council.

The website was published in 2016.

The accessibility report was updated most recently on 27 December 2019.
