Accessibility Policy

We strive to make this website or mobile application barrier-free.
The technical requirements for accessibility derive from the BITV 2.0 (German Barrier-free Information Technology Act).
This digital accessibility statement applies to the website

How accessible is the website?
We aim to provide a website with as few barriers as possible.

This includes the following points:

  • The ability to use the keyboard to navigate the site
  • High color contrasts
  • Labels and alternative texts for images and elements as well as link descriptions
  • Accessible PDF documents

Incompatibility with BITV 2.0  
Disproportionate load

Subareas that are not designed to be accessible because it would be a disproportionate burden:

Subarea: Texts

  • Description: So far not all texts in simple language.
  • Explanation of why disproportionate burden exists:
    Scientific texts can only partially be broken down to easy language and in many cases are aimed at a specialized audience with appropriate prior knowledge.

Other subsections:

  • Sign language videos are not yet available
  • Words in other languages are not yet marked
