Status of reconcilability with the requirements
Based on the review, the websites are not or only partly reconcilable with the above requirements due to the following deviations or exceptions.

Text alternatives
Alternative texts for figures and objects: technically complete and editorially generally met, but some alternative texts are not equivalent to the picture content; in specific cases, they are missing entirely – in progress –

Accessibility by keyboard
Usability without a mouse: Some operating elements cannot be selected and/or activated correctly by keyboard at the moment. – in progress, implementation planned for early 2022 –

Navigation capacity
Sensible document titles: The document title does not always sufficiently correctly designate the page content or may lead to display issues. – in progress –

Removal of these defects is currently planned and mostly in progress already. Once accessibility on our pages has been improved, we will publish information on this. We strive to remove what barriers still exist as quickly as possible.

Evaluation method
Review of compliance with the requirements is based on an “accessibility audit” performed by infomax websolution GmbH on 08/01/2021. The audit reviewed the ten most important criteria of the WCAG based on the easy checks (https://bik-fuer-alle.de/easy-checks.html).
