Accessibility means that the web service is designed for all people despite of their diversities in hearing, movement, sight and cognitive abilities. Web service must provide equal access to all people with diverse abilities. Accessible web service is technically flawless, has a clear user interface and its contents are understandable.
The Accessibility Directive
In April 2019 EU's Accessibility Directive entered into force that requires mobile services and websites on public sector to be accessible. The directive applies also to organizations that receive more than half of their funding from public institutions.
Applying the accessibility directive's requirements will start in stages. In Finland, compliance with the requirements is supervised by the Regional Administration of Southern Finland. Legal requirements and guidance related to accessibility will be published on saavutetavuusvaatimukset.fi -website.
The Act on Provision of Digital Services declares a minimum level for accessibility to web services. The law is based on the WCAG 2.1 (Level AA) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines developed by the Worl Wide Web Consortium.

- Internet Explorer 11
- Safari on mobile devices
