As a public body, we endeavor to make our websites and mobile applications accessible. The accessibility requirements are set out in the Thuringian Act on Barrier-free Access to the Websites and Mobile Applications of Public Bodies (ThürBarrWebG) and the Thuringian Barrier-free Information Technology Ordinance (ThürBITVO).

Status of compatibility with the requirements

The accessibility requirements are set out in sections 3 (1) to (4) and 4 of BITV 2.0, which was issued on the basis of section 12d BGG.

The review of compliance with the requirements is based on

Based on the review, the website is largely compliant with the aforementioned requirements despite isolated exceptions.

There are still isolated deficiencies in the following content and technical aspects.

  • Some older PDF documents are currently only accessible to a limited extent. Alternative ways of displaying these documents, such as displaying them in text-only form, are being examined where possible. The elimination of these known deficiencies is currently in progress and is ongoing. As soon as this process is complete, it will be published on this page.
  • Not all videos have subtitles and a translation into German sign language; here too, work is underway to rectify the shortcomings.
