TUNI EXAM system accessibility statement

This accessibility statement applies to the EXAM service, and it was created on 25 June 2020.

Accessibility means that as many people as possible can use digital services easily and equally. An accessible service must be technically accessible, have a clear user interface and the content must be understandable. The accessibility requirements are based on the Act on the Provision of Digital Services, which is in turn based on the EU Accessibility Directive.

The accessibility of the EXAM system was assessed internally. We are continuously evaluating accessibility during development of the EXAM system.

Accessibility of the digital service

The EXAM system meets the accessibility requirements in part.

During development of the EXAM service, we are committed to improving the accessibility of the digital service and meeting the A and AA level criteria of WCAG 2.1 contained in the Act on the Provision of Digital Services. The observed accessibility deficiencies will be corrected in conjunction with future EXAM version updates whenever possible. In particular, the upgrade of the application framework to Angular7 will improve accessibility (planned for 2021).
