This accessibility statement applies to the University of Oulu service e-Forms – Electronic forms and has been updated on 6.6.2023. The Act on the Provision of Digital Services obliges us as a public sector organisation to comply with accessibility requirements in our digital services.
We have assessed the accessibility of the service ourselves.
Partially meets accessibility requirements.
A form control has more than one label associated with it. A form control should have at most one associated label element. If more than one label element is associated to the control, assistive technology may not read the appropriate label.
o 1.1.1 Non-text content
A layout table is present. Layout tables exist merely to position content visually - to create columns, insert spacing, or align content neatly for sighted users. They can introduce reading and navigation order issues. Screen readers may interpret them as data tables (i.e., announcing column and row numbers). This introduces significant overhead on screen reader users.
o 1.3.1 Info and relationships
The drop-down menu for certain form fields is not fully visible if the form is used vertically on a mobile device. It is necessary to change the device to landscape orientation to see the entire contents of the page.
o 1.3.4. Orientation
A menu that is visible only to an administrator or administrator has very low contrast between text and background colors.
o 1.4.3. Contrast (minimum)
Some column headings in a table element disappear if the text size is increased by more than 150 %.
o 1.4.4 Resize text
The service has a 90-minute time-out, after which the user is logged out automatically. It is not possible to adjust the time limit. The user will not receive a separate warning before time expires. (The time-out is informed in notification text on the front page.)
o 2.2.1 Timing Adjustable
Adjacent links in the top bar go to the same URL (the university logo and the text "e-Forms" both redirect to the front page of the service).
o 2.4.4 Link Purpose (In Context)
If you notice any accessibility problems on the website, please first give feedback to us, i.e. the site administrator. It may take up to 14 days to receive a response.
