Accessibility statement for Mobile Futures website

The Mobile Futures project seeks to ensure the accessibility of its website in compliance with the Web Accessibility Directive of the European Parliament.

This accessibility statement applies to the website and it was created on August 16th, 2023.

State of accessibility of the digital service

The website meets the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA accessibility requirements partially. The accessibility of the website has been assessed by us. The evaluation involved comparison of the website’s contents with the WCAG 2.1.

Content and/or functions of the website, which are not in compliance with the requirements

The website is powered by WordPress, and as such the main elements of the website, e.g. the menu, meet the accessibility requirements. However, the website includes elements and files that do not meet the accessibility requirements. The main problem areas we identified are translations and colour scheme.

The translation from English to Finnish and Swedish of the static parts of the website is automated, using third party software. While the administrators strive to check and edit any mistakes, the automation process may cause texts on the website to be translated incorrectly without them realising it. Parts of the website, e.g. news, blog, are written in either English, Finnish or Swedish and are not translated at all; to a screen reader they will appear as written in English regardless of their content. The administrators aim to resolve the issues regarding the translation.

The colours used on the website correspond to the graphic identity of the project designed by Moe Mustafa. The contrast between the colour of the text and background is sufficient according to colour contrast checkers available online. To fully comply with the guidelines, the contrast should be increased, which will be considered when updating the website.
