Create an accessibility statement

An accessibility statement must be produced for all websites (a website has its own domain, for example sam.lu.se) as well as a contact form to enable visitors to report accessibility issues.

About the accessibility statement

It should be easy for visitors to find the link to the statement, so you should ideally place the link in the footer of the website.

The accessibility statement should include a description of any non-accessible content on the website and a link to a contact form where the visitor can report any issues. It is important to ensure that the viewpoints collected via the contact form are processed and remedied.

The statement should be published by 23 September 2020 at the latest and kept updated.

Example of an accessibility statement and contact form

Create an accessibility statement

Use our examples of statements as a basis and supplement them with information concerning your website. You need to provide the following information:

  • Website adress (URL)
  • Organisational affiliation
  • How accessible is the website? Use one of the two formulations below.
    • “We have no known accessibility issues on this website.”
    • “We are aware that parts of this website are not fully accessible. See the section detailing non-accessible content below for more information.”
  • Technical information about the website’s accessibility. Use one of the three formulations below.
    • “This website complies in full with the law on accessibility to digital public service.”
    • “This website only partially complies with the law on accessibility to digital public service, on account of the issues described below.”
    • “This website does not comply with the law on accessibility to digital public service. Non-accessible parts are described below.”
  • Description of any accessibility issues.
  • The method that was used to test the website and the date on which the test was carried out.
  • Date on which the website was launched (contact the person responsible for your content management system if you need help with that information).
  • The date on which the accessibility report was most recently updated.

Accessibility issues in Drupal 7 and 8

Drupal 7

There are a number of accessibility issues in Drupal 7 that you cannot remedy yourself. You therefore need to specify the following in your statement:

  • Certain forms lack labels. WCAG 1.1.1 (A)
  • The mobile menu contains empty links. WCAG 2.4.4 (A)

Drupal 8

In Drupal 8, you do not need to specify the accessibility issues that you cannot influence as this is handled automatically.
