JEMS ACCESSIBILITY STATEMENT

Version 1 | January 2022

The City of Vienna is committed to making its website and services accessible, in accordance with the Viennese Anti-Discrimination Act (“Wiener Anti-Diskriminierungsgesetz”) transposing Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council.

This accessibility statement applies to the Joint electronic Monitoring System (Jems).

Compliance status 

This web application is partially compliant with conformance level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines—WCAG 2.1 and the applicable European standard EN 301 549 V2.1.2 (2018-08), respectively, due to the exemptions listed below.

Aspects that are partially compliant with accessibility regulations

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reason:

Disproportionate burden

The web application will be offered to a restricted number of registered users. For this reason, the expected number of disabled users among them will be very limited. Therefore, according to Article 5 of Directive (EU) 2016/2102 and especially taking into account Article 5.2 (b) of Directive (EU) 2016/2102, it is considered a disproportionate burden to comply with all accessibility criteria in the part of the web application which is restricted to registered users.

Content by third parties, for example annexes uploaded to applications, which are not within the sphere of the City of Vienna, are exempt from the Directive (EU) 2016/2102. No statement can be made regarding this third-party content’s compliance with accessibility regulations.

Programme- and System Management

For the reasons given above, the programme- and system management in Jems is not regularly verified for compatibility with accessibility standards, besides default support provided by the chosen development frameworks.  

  • Coverage of WAI-ARIA attributes is incomplete (1.1.1 Non-text Content).  
  • Form elements are only partially compatible with screen readers (3.3.2 Labels or Instructions).  
  • Some labels and visual structure elements do not respect minimum contrast (1.4.3 Contrast (Minimum)).
  • The order of elements accessed by keyboard navigation does not always correspond with the logical reading order (2.4.3 Focus Order).  
  • Alternative input methods and assistive technologies are not supported by all form elements (1.3.1 Information and Relationships; 3.3.1 Error Identification; 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value; 4.1.3 Status Messages).
     
Application Form

For the reasons given above, the application form section of Jems is not regularly verified for compatibility with accessibility standards, besides default support provided by the chosen development frameworks.  

  • Coverage of WAI-ARIA attributes is incomplete (1.1.1 Non-text Content).  
  • Form elements are only partially compatible with screen readers (3.3.2 Labels or Instructions).  
  • Some labels and visual structure elements do not respect minimum contrast (1.4.3 Contrast (Minimum))  
  • The order of elements accessed by keyboard navigation does not always correspond with the logical reading order (2.4.3 Focus Order).  
  • Alternative input methods and assistive technologies are not supported by all form elements (1.3.1 Information and Relationships; 3.3.1 Error Identification; 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value; 4.1.3 Status Messages).

Enforcement procedure

In the event of an unsatisfactory response to the aforementioned contact opportunity, you can direct your complaint to the Anti-Discrimination Office (“Stelle zur Bekämpfung von Diskriminierung”)

These complaints will be assessed to establish whether they constitute violations of the provisions laid out in the Viennese Anti Discrimination Act (Wiener Anti-Diskriminierungsgesetz), particularly with regard to failure by the state or a public sector body to comply with accessibility regulations.

If the complaint is valid, the Anti Discrimination Office (“Stelle zur Bekämpfung von Diskriminierung”) is obliged to make recommendations for action to the state or the relevant legal entities and propose measures that will redress the existing failures.
