The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:
a) Non-compliance with the accessibility legislation
Collection online: While usable by keyboard, the selection lists in the online collection are only presented as normal text to screen readers, meaning that users cannot recognize it as controls.
Pictures—alternative text attribute: Many pictures have no attribute for alternative text, meaning that the source code does not meet the HTML standard.
The non-accessible content of the website is currently being revised in order to comply as closely as possible with the requirements in the implementation period Q4/2020.
b) Disproportionate burden
Not all pictures and videos have text that describes the purpose of the picture or video. As such, the WCAG success criterion 1.1.1 (Non-text Content) is not met.
Not all audio and video content contains text alternatives. As such, the WCAG success criterion 1.2 (Time-based Media) is not met.
We have evaluated the costs for rectifying this issue. We are of the opinion that it would be a disproportionate burden in the interests of the accessibility regulations at this time.
c) The content that is not within the scope of the applicable legislation
Many, predominantly old, PDF documents are not accessible and can therefore not or only inadequately be used with screen readers. As such, the WCAG success criterion 4.1.2 (Name, Role, Value) is not met.
However, we are planning to improve the provision of PDF documents in accessible form by late September 2020.
Live videos are not captioned. As such, the WCAG success criterion 1.2.4 (Captions [Live]) is not met. Live videos are exempt from the Directive (EU) 2016/2102. We do not intend to caption live videos.
Content by third parties, for example studies or presentation materials by external speakers, which are not within the sphere of influence of the Austrian Gallery Belvedere, are exempt from the Directive (EU) 2016/2102. No statement can be made regarding this third-party content’s compliance with accessibility regulations.
