Accessibility statement for Stud.IP

This accessibility statement applies to the Stud.IP installation (4.6) at of the Martin Luther University

As a public body within the meaning of Directive (EU) 2016/2102, we strive to make our websites and mobile applications accessible in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Disability Equality Act (BGG) and the Barrier-Free Information Technology Ordinance (BITV 2.0) implementing Directive (EU) 2016/2102.

Status of compatibility with the requirements

The accessibility requirements result from §§ 3 paragraphs 1 to 4 and 4 of BITV 2.0, which was issued on the basis of § 12d BGG.

The review of compliance with the requirements is based on

an assessment carried out by Materna Information & Communications SE in the period from the end of January to the beginning of February 2021. The benchmark for the test is EN 301 549 and the A and AA status of WCAG 2.1. The requirements of WCAG 2.1 (conformance levels A and AA) were tested using the 60 test steps of the BITV/WCAG test.

The check refers to Stud.IP release 4.6.

This Stud.IP installation is not fully compliant with the accessibility regulations that apply to us. In detail:

  • Heading hierarchies are not fully respected on some pages.

  • In some cases, there are no, incorrect or insufficient alternatives for images, control elements and graphical elements.

  • Graphics and control elements lack correct markup in some cases, so that they cannot be correctly detected by assistance systems.

  • The language in alternative texts is sometimes specified in English without the language change being correctly marked.

  • List entries, tables (columns) and forms are sometimes not correctly labeled.

  • The visible order of page elements sometimes differs from the order in the source text.

  • The minimum requirement for contrasts is not met everywhere.

  • The keyboard control is not fully usable.

  • The home page lacks the provision of explanations about the website in plain language and in German sign language.

In addition, content posted by users, e.g. PDFs or videos, may have barriers.

Stud.IP is currently being revised with regard to accessibility. The following measures to reduce barriers are expected to be included in the release of Stud.IP 5.1 and 5.2:

  • Attributes and alternative texts are added and corrected so that screen readers can correctly interpret buttons, links, controls and graphics and output appropriate texts.

  • The hierarchies of headings and order of page elements are revised/corrected.

  • Language mark-ups will be standardized.

  • List entries, tables (columns) and forms will be labelled correctly and linked in a meaningful way.

  • A possibility to change the contrast is implemented.

  • The keyboard control is corrected.

  • Action menus and accordion elements are revised.

  • Responsive navigation will be improved.
