Content that is not accessible

This website does comply in part with the law governing accessibility to digital public services, due to the problems described below.

Non-compliance with the legal requirements

Problem with personal text settings

  • The appearance of the web page is affected if the user has their own settings for text, such as line spacing and font size. [WCAG 1.4.12 (AA)] and [WCAG 1.4.4 (AA)]

Problems when using with no vision

  • The page foot has openable menus, which are not shown by some screen reader tools. [WCAG 4.1.1 (A)]

Links on the website

  • Links on the website do not function consistently. On some pages, all links that lead to other websites open in a new window in the browser. Links at the page foot and links to pages on the website open in the same window. [WCAG 2.4.4 (A), WCAG 3.2.3 (AA)]


  • There are some older documents (published before 23 September 2019) on the website that are not adapted for accessibility.


  • Older films lack subtitles and visual interpretation, and do not have a separate descriptive text. [WCAG 1.2.2 (A), WCAG 1.2.3 (A), WCAG 1.2.5 (AA)]

How we tested the website

The Swedish Research Council asked an external actor to carry out an independent review of The review scrutinised a number of representative pages and important features. The review was delivered in the form of a report on 09 January 2019. The Swedish Research Council tasked another external actor to make corrections. This actor made and reviewed the corrections, and delivered them on 05 November 2019. Ahead of the delivery of these corrections, the Swedish Research Council also carried out its own testing.

The main reasons why accessibility problems still remain on are that the problems are either of a type that requires major resources to correct, or of a type that we do not yet know how best to correct.

It is our ambition to have corrected all known accessibility problems no later than 31 December 2021.

New features and other factors that can create accessibility problems are reviewed continuously by the Swedish Research Council.

The website was published in May 2018.

The accessibility report was updated most recently on 06 May 2020.
