What is digital accessibility?
Digital accessibility means that everyone should have equal access to digital services, including users with visual, auditory, motor or cognitive disabilities. For instance, the content should be easy to read and understand, and easily accessible through various aids.
The law on accessibility to digital public service
The websites of all public sector authorities must conform to the Swedish law on accessibility to digital public service, which applies to goteborgco.se. The law is based on the international standard for web content accessibility WCAG 2.1 level AA.
