Non-accessible content

A number of pages still contain a number of technical and content shortcomings in terms of accessibility.


  • the HTML structure of the titles should be improved for some pages (in particular the coherence of the hierarchy of H-tags for titles and subheadings) (WCAG criterion 1.3.1)
  • the insufficient contrast between text and background on some pages (WCAG criterion 1.4.3)


  • many texts are not written for the web
  • too little clear, official language is still being used.

Furthermore, many PDF documents do not meet the accessibility standards.

Proposed alternatives

Currently, there is not always an available alternative for other non-accessible elements.
