The University of Freiburg makes every effort to ensure that its web pages are accessible to persons with disabilities in accordance with § 10 paragraph 1 of the L-BGG (State Act on Equal Opportunities of Persons with Disabilities).

This accessibility statement applies to web pages of the domain Additional websites and applications hosted by University of Freiburg institutes, faculties, and institutions may have different implementation instructions and thus also different accessibility statements.

1. Current State of Compatibility with the Requirements

Due to the current transition to a new content management system, we have not yet been able to check and document whether the website meets all accessibility requirements. Because we are now using the most recent version of a modern content management system (WordPress), however, we assume that it already meets many of the technical requirements. The website will be systematically analyzed by 31 July 2021 with the help of the results of an inspection of a small selection of pages conducted on 18 January 2021 by the state inspection office for media accessibility and a BITV self-test. We will continually implement the requirements described in the L-BBG on the basis of the results of the external inspection and the self-test.

These web pages are only partially compatible with § 10 paragraph 1 of the L-BGG due to the following incompatibilities and/or exceptions already known at this point in time.

2. Non-Accessible Content

The content listed below is not accessible to persons with disabilities for the following reasons:
