The web services of the KEINO Competence Centre are governed by The Act on the Provision of Digital Services, which requires that public sector must be accessible. The KEINO Competence Centre works to promote equality in its web services, to ensure that they are user-friendly and available for all public organisations and their staff.
Below you will find the KEINO Competence Centre's Accessibility Statement for www.hankintakeino.fi and its language versions. The accessibility of the website has been assessed in-house using technical tools. A third party carried out a partial assessment of the technical accessibility in 2018. The Accessibility Statement (in Finnish) was originally published on 22 September 2020. The date of the latest update is shown at the foot of the page.
Web service accessibility status
The Hankintakeino.fi web service largely meets the accessibility requirements of the Act, with a few exceptions, has no critical deficiencies in its accessibility. It meets the requirements for levels A and AA of the WCAG guidelines.
The web service's overall functionality is quite good. Below is a listing of separate services or implementations that have room for improvement and whose accessibility we plan to improve.
There are a few shortcomings in the functionality of the Hankintakeino.fi web service menu. For example, in certain situations the menu is only partially visible and does not function correctly on some older browsers. These problems also affect accessibility. We have been correcting the functionality of the menu since autumn 2021, and in the same context we have ensured that the implementation is in every way compliant with the accessibility requirements.
Some of the attachments published on the website before 23 September 2020 are not compliant with the requirements. In these cases, you can request the attachments in an accessible format. Please see section Accessibility Feedback below on how to contact us.
The Hankintakeino.fi web service has embedded videos that can be viewed directly on the website. All the videos are subtitled.
The website also has links to videos produced by the KEINO Competence Centre, which cannot be viewed directly on the web service. They must be opened outside the service on the Hankintakeino channel on the YouTube site.
Videos that are located on the YouTube site and do not have subtitles have been linked to the Hankintakeino.fi web service. Most of them last more than 5 minutes, for example webinar recordings. Our primary procedure for fulfilling the accessibility requirements for these videos is to include a summary in a news format in video description.
In addition to or instead of the Hankintakeino.fi website and Hankintakeino channel on the YouTube web service, we publish video files on Twitter and LinkedIn. These videos are always subtitled.
We implement video subtitles as SRT files. That is, when posting a video on YouTube, we include the subtitles in a file format. In September 2020, the format of our Twitter account did not yet allow the use of SRT files. We looked into the problem in autumn 2020. The videos posted on Twitter can be found with subtitles in other services.
If you notice accessibility issues on the website, please send us feedback via our web form. The answer may take up to 14 days; however, addressing the deficiencies may take longer than that.
If you are not satisfied the response you received or do not receive any response within two weeks, you can give feedback to the Regional Administrative Agency for Southern Finland. The Agency's website explains how to file a complaint and how the matter will be handled.
