Digital Accessibility

FWTM – Freiburg Wirtschaft Touristik und Messe GmbH & Co. KG – aims to make its media services accessible on a disabled-friendly basis in harmony with the State Act on Equality for Disabled Persons (L-BGG) for the implementation of directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and the Council.

Accessible website

This declaration on accessibility applies to the website www.meeting.freiburg.de. 

FWTM – Freiburg Wirtschaft Touristik und Messe GmbH & Co. KG designs the content of this internet presence in such a way that anyone can use and read it, especially people with disabilities. This internet presence meets, in large part, the requirements of the BITV – the Disabled-Friendly Information Technology Regulation - and is thus largely disabled-friendly and easy to use on various devices, including mobile devices. Some PDF documents, e.g. PDFs of printed brochures and catalogues, cannot yet be offered on a disabled-friendly basis.

  • Texts
    We aim to make the texts legible and as understandable as possible. Technical terms and abbreviations are used only where urgently necessary and are accordingly explained.
  • Images
    Most photographs can be displayed in enlarged format.
  • Alternative texts
    In general, alternative texts (descriptions of images for screen readers) are available for images or graphics.
  • Videos 
    For videos, we try – where possible – to provide subtitles.
  • Structure
    The contents of the website are structured and equipped with hierarchically correctly placed headings; semantically correct HTML is used.
  • Text sizes
    The text size can be changed by means of the setting options in the browser.
  • Website title
    Websites contain a title that describes the topic or purpose of the site.
  • Device independence
    The presentation of the website is largely independent of the device used (e.g. smartphone or older browser). Software extensions in order to access content are not required.
