Accessibility statement

LUT University's web site was published in 2013. Its contents must follow the requirements set out by the Directive on the accessibility of the websites and mobile applications of public sector bodies and the Act on the Provision of Digital Services by 23 September 2019 (LAB 23 September 2019).

This accessibility statement assesses the accessibility of the LUT University website in the light of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, levels A and AA.

How accessible this website is

The website of LUT University largely complies with accessibility requirements. The limitations of the site are listed below.

Development of content

We have observed that the following accessibility aspects may require some improvement:

  • The text equivalents of some images, links and other elements are missing.
  • The use of colours as the only visual tool in some link texts.
  • The contrast of some elements falls short of the target level.
  • The text size cannot be enlarged up to 200% without losing content and functionality.
  • Content that is focused on.
  • The usability of the menu with the keyboard.
  • Skipping repetitive parts.

LUT University will be updating its entire website within a few years. Due to the upcoming overhaul, LUT University's current website does not fully comply with accessibility requirements. It is more practical to implement extensive improvements on the new site that is being planned.

Improvements to the accessibility to the existing website will be made depending on the investments and effort they require.
