The accessibility of the digital service has been assessed by our personnel.

Accessibility status 

According to the assessment of The UKK Institute for Health Promotion Research, fulfills the critical accessibility requirements of the Finnish Act on the Provision of Digital Services. The website is currently compatible with WCAG version 2.1, levels A and AA. 

The legislation does not cover  

  • files of office programs (e.g. doc, pdf) that have been published before September 23, 2018

The website of The UKK Institute for Health Promotion Research does not fulfill WCAG version 2.1, level AAA criteria. This includes e.g. sign language interpretation and prolonged descriptive interpretation.

The Act does not require retrospective subtitling of videos.

Our aim is to reach an accessibility level as high as possible. The UKK Institute employees are obliged to pay attention to accessibility in all areas of content creating.
