Wübben Stiftung Wissenschaft has set itself the goal of making this website and other means of communication as accessible as possible. Accessibility means the greatest possible absence of technical, legal, financial, communicative, design and social barriers in order to be able to perceive and process content. Accessibility improves access and use for all visitors and users.

Accessibility should be based on the legal principles (§§12, 12a BGG) as well as the standards of BITV 2.0 and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, which are developed and continuously developed by the W3C, the World Wide Web Consortium. According to these guidelines, all components of a website should have the following characteristics:

  • perceptible,
  • operable,
  • comprehensible,
  • robust.

The pursuit of accessibility has an influence on the development of the technical infrastructure, on data management and the interface, as well as on editorial processes, text production and multilingualism, among other things.

The website of the Wübben Stiftung Wissenschaft complies with a wide range of requirements for reducing barriers on the Internet:

  • sufficiently large and easy-to-read typography,
  • the ability to navigate quickly on a page using jump labels,
  • sufficient contrast between font and background,
  • clear recognizability and differentiation of foreground and background as well as interaction fields,
  • ARIA attributes and alternative texts (alt texts) for non-text media (e.g. photos with alt texts),
  • Complete functionality through keyboard operation,
  • technical robustness (compatibility with current browsers, etc.).
