Declaration on accessibility

Status April 2024

Studentenwerk Leipzig endeavours to make its website accessible.

This declaration on accessibility applies to

The legal basis is the Act on Equal Opportunities of Persons with Disabilities (Behindertengleichstellungsgesetz, BGG), the Sächsisches Inklusionsgesetz (SächsInklusG), the Saxon Act to promote electronic government (SächsEGovG) and the law on the implementation of Directive (EU) 2016/2102 on barrier-free access to the websites and mobile applications of public bodies (Barrierefreie-Websites-Gesetz, BfWebG)

The benchmark for accessibility is the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 at level AA, which were published as a W3C Recommendation (Web Standard) (criteria of the European standard EN 301 549, version 3.2.1) and the further developed BITV 2.0 (Barrierefreie-Informationstechnik-Verordnung).
