At Halmstad University, we strive to make our website accessible to as many people as possible regardless of prerequisites.

Guidelines – WCAG 2.1

Guidelines for how information and services can be designed to make websites accessible have been produced by WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative, a task force within W3C, World Wide Web Consortium). The EU member states have agreed that public websites must follow these guidelines. The current WAI guidelines are WCAG 2.1 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1). The process of making the website as good as possible from an accessibility point of view is a continual process.

Temporary accessibility statement for

Here we describe the shortcomings in accessibility for and how we plan to rectify them. You will also find information on how to contact us if you find inadequacies.

We strive towards being perceived, handled and understood by all users, regardless of disabilities and regardless of which aids they use. We will at least achieve basic accessibility by being compliant with WCAG 2.1, level AA.


Currently we are aware that we are not compliant with all criteria in WCAG in the following sections of the website:

  • There are documents on the website that have not been made accessible. These are updated and replaced gradually in an ongoing systematic process.
  • Parts of the website are not compliant with accessibility principles when it comes to accessible code. We have begun planning how to systematically rectify these issues and have ongoing dialogue with our developers.
  • There may be some integrated systems on the website that are not compliant with accessibility principles.
  • Insufficient contrast in some areas of the website. We are in contact with our developers to rectify this.
  • Some parts of the website have inconsistent navigation. We are reviewing this and will correct gradually in an ongoing systematic process.
