Web accessibility aims to help users with disabilities to access information and functions available on the Internet. In order to offer everyone – with or without disabilities – the best possible browsing experience, sites should be correctly designed and developed. The European Court of Auditors (ECA) follows web accessibility standards: its website has recently been made fully responsive, based on a thorough analysis of its overall accessibility level by an external ISO-certified consultancy in late 2014.
Following this comprehensive report, the ECA has taken all possible measures to bring its website into line with version 2.0 of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0).
Currently, the entire website meets the requirements for partial Level AA conformance.
The ECA constantly monitors the overall accessibility of its website. Due to the high frequency of web content updates and despite the efforts to keep all web pages as accessible and user-friendly as possible, visitors may occasionally encounter accessibility issues while browsing the website. If so, please contact us. Please note that videos and PDF documents on some pages are not yet optimised for accessibility.
