The Studierendenwerk Tübingen-Hohenheim is committed to making its websites and mobile applications accessible without barriers in accordance with § 10 paragraph 1 of the German State Disability Equality Act (Landesbehindertengleichstellungsgesetz, L-BGG).
This declaration on accessibility applies to the version of the website www.my-stuwe.de, the microsite kids.my-stuwe.de and our my-stuwe app currently accessible on the internet.
1. Status of compatibility with the requirements
This website, microsite and the my-stuwe app are partially compatible with section 10(1) of the L-BGG due to the following incompatibilities and exceptions.
2. Contents that are not accessible
The content listed below is not accessible for the following reasons:
- Incompatibility with section 10(1) L-BGG
- This website is not completely accessible in simple language, as understanding demanding and/or scientific texts is a prerequisite for studying for our target group. We have created a page in easy language that explains what the tasks of a student union are.
- We have included a glossary in sign language on our website. There, important terms related to studying are explained in sign language and written language.
- Disproportionate burden:
As a student union, we have a very extensive and diverse web presence, which is why errors cannot be completely avoided.
- This website and microsite are currently only accessible to a limited extent with a screen reader.
- It is currently not possible to adjust the font size. Alternatively, the page can be zoomed via the browser.
- Alternative texts are not available for all images and graphics.
- Not all documents or PDF files are available in an accessible version.
Integrated videos are currently available without subtitles or text alternatives.
- Forms are not yet completely accessible.
- In our news articles, text passages in foreign languages are not marked with the lang attribute.
- Maps used for directions are not supplemented in text form.
- Sliders cannot be stopped individually.
- The programming language “Hypertext Markup Language” (HTML) is not used correctly everywhere.
We are striving to improve this immediately.
