We are constantly working to improve accessibility

Our digital services have been assessed for accessibility

Liana Technologies has implemented this digital service and assessed its accessibility. The accessibility of the website has been tested, among other things, with the Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool designed for researching accessibility and using the VoiceOver screen reading technology of the macOS operating system. Website testing has been performed using different web browsers. Various functionalities have been tested, including functions related to navigation and search. Among other things, the following things have been established about the accessibility of the website: the use of the website is possible via a keyboard interface. The elements of the website have name tags or legends that describe them, which are used by screen reading technologies. The use of the website is also possible when the size of the website content is enlarged to 200 percent. The website is responsive and can be browsed on different screen sizes. The contrast difference in the color of the texts is large enough compared to the color of the background, i.e. the text stands out from the background. The critical A and AA level requirements of accessibility were taken into account in the design and implementation of the website.
