Nordic Visual Studies and Art Education’s (NoVA) nova-master.com website and mobile services are subject to the EU’s accessibility directive, the aim of which is to ensure equality in a digitalised society and set uniform requirements for accessibility. The nova-master.com website was launched on 15 April 2019. The site’s current accessibility standard has not been officially tested.
The requirements of the EU’s accessibility directive have been taken into account in the development of the website, and the work continues. The information in this statement is based on a self-assessment.
NoVA is committed to observing accessibility standards. The following measures are implemented in order to achieve this goal:
- accessibility is part of our mission statement,
- accessibility has been taken into account in the NoVA’s practices,
- a member of staff has been appointed to be responsible for accessibility at the NoVA.
NoVA’s objective is to maintain a website that is technically accessible and understandable in terms of its contents and that is clear and easy to use for all types of users. The website requires further improvements, however, in the following areas:
- image descriptions (alt texts).
The improvements aim to be done by 15 January 2020.
