Non-accessible content

Our (trilingual) website strives to be fully accessible to all users, including people with varying needs. Despite our efforts to make every part of our website accessible, we recognise that some content or functionalities may not yet fully meet all accessibility criteria. This may include:

  • PDF documents and other downloads: Not all downloaded documents are fully optimised for accessibility. This means that some documents may not work well with screen readers or other assistive technologies.
  • Video and audio content: Not all video and audio content includes subtitles or descriptive audio, which may limit accessibility for users with hearing or visual impairments.
  • Dynamic content: Some parts of our website that contain dynamic, interactive or real-time content may present accessibility challenges due to their complex nature. We are working to make this content more accessible.
  • Navigation and structure: While we are committed to making our website intuitive and easy to navigate, there may still be parts where navigation or page structure can be improved to enhance accessibility.

We are constantly improving the accessibility of our website and appreciate feedback from users on how we can further improve accessibility. If you encounter any problems or have suggestions, please contact us.
