Accessibility statement of the Autovertaamo.fi service

This is the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency Traficom’s accessibility statement for the Autovertaamo service located at https://autovertaamo.traficom.fi/ (External link).

The accessibility statement was prepared on 4 February 2021.

The service is subject to the Act on the Provision of Digital Services, which requires public online services to be accessible.

The accessibility of the service has been assessed by an external expert organisation.

Accessibility status of the digital service

Partially meets the accessibility requirements.

Non-accessible content

3. The website is not yet fully compliant
•    Perceivable: Car price bar

Non-accessible content and issues with it

The price of the car is presented as a number followed by the euro symbol, in a way that is itself accessible (although mentioning the word Price would make it clearer). However, a screenreader will also read two other numbers after it (without the euro symbol), which denote the maximum and minimum limits of the price graph without any descriptors.

Accessibility requirements that are not met

1.1.1 Non-text Content
Perceivable: Headings
Non-accessible content and issues with it
There are issues with the use of HTML heading levels. Subheadings are presented on the same level as their superordinate headings.

1.3.1 Info and Relationships
Perceivable: Headings on the Energy label page
Non-accessible content and issues with it
There are issues with the headings of the Energy label page. For example, all headings are h2-level headings, and the page does not have any h1 headings.

1.3.1 Info and Relationships
Perceivable: Highlighting of active components
Non-accessible content and issues with it
Active elements should be visually highlighted and programmatically marked. Active page on the main navigation element, currently there is no way to determine what page you are on (visually, programmatically).

1.3.1 Info and Relationships
Perceivable: Meaningful sequence
Non-accessible content and issues with it
The reading order of the page is mostly logical and intuitive. However, screenreaders read the information in the Safety table in an illogical order, rendering it impossible to understand (this concerns the headings; the data itself is completely inaccessible). The reading order of the Energy label PDF file is also random, making its content impossible to comprehend using a screenreader.

1.3.2 Meaningful sequence
Perceivable: Writing of instructions
Non-accessible content and issues with it
Instructions should not reference the visual characteristics of content as the only means of finding a function.

1.3.3 Sensory Characteristics
Perceivable: The comparison page is only displayed horizontally on mobile devices.
Non-accessible content and issues with it
On mobile devices, the Compare page forces the user to use horizontal orientation to view the content, meaning that users viewing the page vertically are not presented with the same content as those viewing the page horizontally.

1.3.4 Orientation
Perceivable: Contrasts
Non-accessible content and issues with it
Low contrasts in the service are a problem especially for those with poor vision or presbyopia.

1.4.3 Contrast (minimum)
Perceivable: Resizing the text breaks some elements in the service
Non-accessible content and issues with it
Some visual elements do not scale cleanly when only the text is resized to 200%.

1.4.4 Resize text
Perceivable: Text alternatives
Non-accessible content and issues with it
There are issues with the text alternatives of visual elements, because of which those using screenreaders do not receive the right kind or any information about them.

1.1.1 Non-text Content
Operable: Bypass blocks
Non-accessible content and issues with it
The service does not have an anchor link for directly accessing the content. As such, a keyboard user has to navigate through the top bar and menu links on each page before being able to access the actual content in the content area of the page.

2.4.1 Bypass Blocks
Operable: Unique and consistent page titles
Non-accessible content and issues with it
The title attributes of some pages are inconsistently defined.
 Because of this, the user does not receive feedback from the page title as regards their location and may not be able to tell pages apart based on page titles.

2.4.2 Page Titles
Operable: The Compare function and the Compare link
Non-accessible content and issues with it
The Compare function (on the car model selection page and each model’s own page) adds the selected car model to the compare page as one of the cars to be compared. This function currently has the same name as the Compare link that appears at the bottom bar of the service. The Compare link is not a function, as it takes the user to the comparison page that the car models are added to instead.

2.4.4 Link Purpose (In Context)
Operable: Multiple ways
Non-accessible content and issues with it
Most of the pages in the service can only be located in one way because they do not appear in the main menu and the site does not have a search function.

2.4.5 Multiple Ways
Operable: PDF file downloadable from the Energy label page
The PDF file downloadable from the Energy label page has the following issues: The file has no title, the file has no defined language, the images do not have text alternatives, texts that look like headings are not marked as such and with a screenreader the text is read in a seemingly random order, making it practically impossible to understand.
