Accessibility

The Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia is committed to provide access to its stat.si website in line with the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications Act.

 

Accessibility statement

This accessibility statement relates to the stat.si website of the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia (SURS). The website is partially in line with the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications Act due to exceptions (inaccessible content) stated hereinafter.

In developing new websites and applications, SURS follows the the WCAG 2.0 or WCAG 2.1 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, in which compliance is broken down into three levels: A, AA and AAA. SURS strives to comply at least with the AA level.

In implementing the recommendations, there might be some unplanned and unwanted errors or bugs.

To meet accessibility requirements, some system adjustments were implemented, such as:

  • Responsive design – content layout adjusted to screen resolution
  • Display of content for users of assistive technologies (e.g. screen reader, Braille display) – partial implementation
  • Keyboard navigation (adjustment for users who cannot use a computer mouse) – partial implementation
  • Appropriate colour contrast (between the text and the background)
  • Predictable website operation
  • Enabled usage of different heading levels
  • Images equipped with alternative text – not for all data releases due to technical limitations

About other inaccessible content

SURS is constantly striving to improve the user experience and continuously improving individual accessibility elements.

Nevertheless, in the current phase of website adjustment, some published content does not comply with all the requirements regarding accessibility as stipulated by the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications Act.
