Level of compliance
The um.si website partially complies with the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications Act due to the below stated exceptions.
We are constantly monitoring the accessibility of the um.si website and regularly improving individual elements of accessibility. Nevertheless, some published contents do not comply with all the requirements regarding accessibility as laid down in the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications Act due to the disproportionate burden. Regarding publications within the um.si website, users with various forms of disability are thus not able to access some documents intended for a professional or narrow target public or documents that would due to their complexity present a disproportionate burden. Nevertheless, at the University of Maribor we are putting forth extra effort to make our contents as well adapted as possible to potential users belonging to vulnerable groups. In the future, we will make sure to publish documents as much as possible in accessible format.
Examples of such content are:
- scanned documents in PDF format,
- graphic elements in form of images with captions (e.g. infographics),
- video recordings,
- various complex data tables.
