Website Accessibility Statement

Saarland University is committed to delivering an access-for-all website that meets the legal requirements set out in Section 12a of the Saarland Disability Equality Act (SBGG). This statement on barrier-free digital accessibility applies to and all directly related web pages.

Compliance with accepted accessibility standards

The accessibility of the Saarland University website was assessed on 14 December 2020 by an independent third-party. The assessment indicated that the website does not meet current digital inclusion goals. We are working hard to deliver a website that is accessible to all as soon as possible.

Website content that does not currently meet accessibility criteria

  • News: The news headlines are not correctly tagged as headlines.
  • Tile groups: The tile groups are not structured appropriately.
  • Main navigation menu: Navigation roles and values have not been set correctly.
  • Website footer: The source code for the footer section is not properly structured.
  • Skip links: No skip links have been used.

Preparation of this accessibility statement
