Accessibility statement

This accessibility statement applies to the website https://www.lumi-supercomputer.eu/

CSC is committed to making its websites accessible, in accordance with Act on the provision of digital services 306/2019.

  • The websites are partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
  • The content listed below is non-accessible because it is not compliant with the Act on the provision of digital services 306/2019.

Visual content and elements

  • Images in the social media feed are missing alternative text. (WCAG 1.1.1)
  • Some linked images or icons are missing alternative text, for examples: linked images in featured posts do not have a text alternative and the “reply” icon buttons in the social media feed have no label. Some linked images have alternative text which does not describe the purpose of the link, for example, the logo link alternative text does not include the text in the logo. (WCAG 1.1.1, 2.4.4.)
  • There are some issues with the text contrasts, for example, link contrast with the background in the social media feed. (WCAG 1.4.3)
  • There are some issues with the contrasts of user interface components and graphical objects, for example, the Reply, retweet, share and like buttons in the social media feed. (WCAG 1.4.11)
  • Links do not have sufficient contrast in relation to body text. (WCAG 1.4.1)
  • Insufficient audio description: the What LUMI is about video on the Media page contains some on-screen text which is not present in the audio track, and there is no alternative audio description available. (WCAG 1.2.3, 1.2.5)
  • Some text is cut off when zooming only text to 200%. E.g. the main feature on the home page and the social media feed. (WCAG 1.4.4)
  • Some elements do not scale responsively on a 320 CSS point screen width (which corresponds to 400% general zoom on a 1280 x 1024 px screen). E.g. the embedded video on the Media page does not scale and causes horizontal scrolling. (WCAG 1.4.10)

Structure

  • There are some issues in the information and relationships of the site: The Latest news and articles listing structure in some sidebars is not available for assistive technology, date information is before the heading. The hero feature on the front page has misleading role=tabpanel and incorrect aria-describedby reference (referenced id does not exist). (WCAG 1.3.1)
  • Information about an active navigation element is not determined programmatically. E.g. current link in navigation menus is highlighted visually but not marked programmatically (WCAG 1.3.1, 4.1.2)
  • There are several issues with the HTML heading structure. E.g. no h1 heading on the home page, social media feed has empty h6 headings, navigation links on narrow screens are incorrectly marked up as headings, headings in the sidebar on pages like

May we introduce: Lumi skip heading levels and are before the main heading of the page in reading order and headings on the FAQ page skip multiple heading levels (h1 à h6). (WCAG 1.3.1)

  • Page regions or ARIA landmarks have been determined, but their use is inconsistent and sometimes misleading. Examples: nested navigation landmarks within the header with no label, the big feature on the home page is not inside any landmark, the Cookie notice or the logo area above the footer are not contained in any landmark, breadcrumb navigation is not marked and labelled as a navigation region and aside landmark is contained by another landmark on pages within a subsection of the site, such as Resource allocation. (WCAG 1.3.1)
  • HTML validation detected some errors and warnings. For instance: duplicate ID’s in the header search form, a stray </div> end tag on the front page and stray </p> tags on FAQ page. (WCAG 4.1.1)

Navigation

  • Some interactive elements are not included in the tabular order. E.g. focusing and using the content filter on the News and Articles and Events and Training pages (it is possible to open the menu using screen reader navigation controls but there is no indication that the element is selectable) and the Show more button beneath the social media feed. (WCAG 2.1.1)
  • There are some issues with the visual keyboard focus indicator. E.g. the expandable sections on the FAQ page, submit button in the header search form does not show when it is focused, the search field in the header has selected text when focused but no other indicator, the default focus indicator is hard to see around call to action links (such as Read More on front page) and linked images and sometimes not visible at all in Firefox. Because the cookie notice is last in the focus order, it can hide the focused element and a significant part of the page content, especially on mobile. (WCAG 2.4.7)

Forms

  • Some form controls are missing an associated label. E.g. the search form has no label, the labels in the main newsletter form are not programmatically associated with their respective fields and the Newsletter subscribe form does not have an always-visible label. (WCAG 1.1.1, 1.3.1, 3.3.2)
  • The main Newsletter subscribe form shows a success message when the form has been successfully sent. The message is not announced by screen readers. (WCAG 4.1.3)

Content which is not within the scope of the applicable legislation

  • Videos published before September 23rd, 2020.
  • PDF documents published before September 23rd, 2018.
