Compliance Status

The website is partially compliant with the Act Act of April 4, 2019, on Digital Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications of Public Entities due to discrepancies or exclusions listed below.

Wrocław University of Science and Technology during the implementation of the "Atlas of Open Science Resources 2.0" project, as part of Task No. 2: Preparation and sharing of resources of Wrocław University of Science and Technology, with the participation of accessibility specialists is adapting previously identified inaccessible resources, both textual and multimedia, to meet the needs of people with disabilities. Within the project, an Active Information Platform e-scienceplus.pl has been created, where science resources are collected, processed, and made available in an open digital format for all interested parties. According to the project schedule, Task No. 2 is expected to be completed by . The project is funded by the European Union under the Digital Poland Operational Program.

We are making every effort to ensure that the website is user-friendly for people with disabilities. However, there may still be accessibility issues with documents, as some of them are currently being adapted to meet the requirements of the WCAG 2.1 standard. Due to the diverse origins of a large amount of material provided in various formats from multiple sources, some files are not adapted for people with disabilities. This includes publications, mainly from the 19th and 20th centuries, which were created by diverse authors using various languages and writing techniques (handwritten, typewritten, gothic), making it challenging to influence their intended content and format in accordance with accessibility standards. Upon individual request, materials of this kind can be prepared for users with specific needs. The majority of Wrocław University of Science and Technology's resources have been adapted for individuals with disabilities. Videos are equipped with, among other things, transcriptions, speech synthesis, sign language interpreters, and subtitles. Images have alternative text. Materials published before the enactment of the digital accessibility law may not meet its standards. There are catalogs that, due to their characteristic structure, may not be fully adaptable. Ongoing efforts and programming modifications are being carried out to enhance website accessibility, in accordance with the requirements of the WCAG 2.1 standard. Users may encounter difficulties with forms when using screen readers. Contrast between text and background has been maintained. Disturbances in header hierarchy may occur.
