TU Dortmund University seeks to make its websites and mobile applications accessible pursuant to EU Directive 2016/2102. The following Accessibility Statement documents the implementation status for the website ow.zhb.tu-dortmund.de in compliance with the Ordinance of the Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia on the Creation of Barrier-Free Information Technology in Accordance with the Act on Equal Opportunities for Disabled Persons (BITVNRW).
Status of conformity with accessibility requirements
This website is partly compliant with EU Directive 2016/2102.
Verification method: Self-Assessment
Compiled on: 12.03.2021
Last verified on: 12.03.2021
The content listed below is non-accessible:
• PDF files integrated in the website
• Not all of the currently used shades of color achieve the required contrast at a browser zoom factor of 100 percent.
- Due to the large number of PDF documents made available that were produced prior to 23.09.2018, it has so far not been possible to transpose all of these into an accessible format. These are successively superceded by accordingly modified versions.
- The corporate design of the TU Dortmund University is not rich enough in contrast at the present time.
- In the event of non-accessible enrollment documents, please contact the Student Registration Office. In the case of non-accessible exam regulations, please contact the Central Examinations Office. In all other cases, please use the feedback form below.
- A strong magnification via the browser zoom function offers the necessary contrast. We are working on a completely barrier-free solution for this issue.
