    Accessibility of the digital service

    This accessibility statement describes how the website complies with the Act on the Provision of Digital Services, the shortcomings in the accessibility of the website and ways to give us feedback on accessibility problems.

    The Business Tampere website contains city/municipality-specific information for companies and interest groups, which is directly linked to the city/municipality’s own website. The accessibility of the website behind the links is the responsibility of the city/municipality itself and is described in each website’s own accessibility statement.

    Accessibility status:

    The website largely complies with the AA-level accessibility criteria required by law (WCAG criteria 2.1).

    The website is currently being updated and corrective actions are underway. The target schedule for updating the website is spring 2021.

    Non-accessible content (according to the WCAG criteria):

    • Some images on the website do not have alternative texts available. (WCAG 1.1.1)
    • Some picture elements are missing a software attribute and identifier that refers to the image. (WCAG 1.1.1, 1.3.1)
    • Some colour combinations used on the website have insufficient contrast. (WCAG 1.4.3)
    • There are partial deficiencies in the use of heading levels, and the identifier/attribute is not unique. (WCAG 2.4.6, 4.1.1)

    The videos on the website are missing Finnish subtitles.

    The videos on the website are aimed at an international audience and interest groups, and the content of the videos is mainly reflected in the rest of the text section of the website. More information about the branch of activity is available from each contact person mentioned on the website.

    Business Tampere's YouTube channel contains video content released prior to 23 September 2020 that is not in a fully accessible format. According to law, video content published before 23 September 2020 does not need to be retroactively made accessible or removed.
