Accessibility ensures equality. Digital accessibility means that all individuals are able to receive the information in an accessible format regardless of the situation at the time or possible individual limitations for the use. Accessibility is crucial for people with special needs due to, for instance, mental and physical disabilities and for elderly people. The documents are challenging for individuals who use low vision aids.
Accessibility means the consideration of human diversity in digital services. In other words, it corresponds to accessibility in the physical world.
In Finland, accessibility is required also by the Act on the Provision of Digital Services, which applies to the online content and services produces by universities and other authorities. The accessibility requirements cover both digital design of websites and documents on the websites.These are especially the theses that are published in Trepo.
