Technical information about this website’s accessibility

This website is partially compliant with the Swedish accessibility regulations, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non accessible content

  • Some pages and features are not consistently described in links, references and headings.

  • Problems using a keyboard:
    - navigation does not always follow a logical order
    - buttons in image carousels cannot be accessed
    - focus is not always visually clear
    - some functions cannot be controlled on mobile phones and large screens
    - there is no shortcut past menus to the main content

  • When a user sets larger distances between letters, words, lines or paragraphs, not all text is always visible.
