Declaration on Accessibility

As a public institution, the Technische Universität Ilmenau is required to make its website accessible in accordance with the following national legislation implementing Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 October 2016:


This accessibility statement covers the homepage and all subpages of the presence and represents the status of the implementation of these requirements.


Status of compatibility with the requirements

This website is partially compliant with the requirements. The test was carried out on 21 September 2020 as a self-test based on the BITV/WCAG test and the Easy Check based on the Web Accessibility Initiative (W3C).

For the editorial and technical operation of the website, the content management system TYPO3 recommended on the website of the BITV test is used.


Non-accessible content

The contents listed below are not or only partially accessible for the following reasons:

Alternative texts for graphics
Alternative texts are provided for the images used. However, the check for completeness and the content check have not yet been completed.

In some places the contrast is insufficient due to the use of icons on a dark blue background. We are trying to identify these places and to find an alternative design solution.

Keyboard navigation is technically possible, but mouseover effects may cause display problems in the main menu or the menus of the faculty and department pages.

We use forms very sparingly on our website, but in some places they are unavoidable. In case of display problems in connection with forms, we ask you to get in touch with the respective contact persons.

Animated content
There are some animated banners on the website that cannot be stopped using a control element.

Embedded videos have subtitles as far as possible. We are working on adding subtitles to all videos. Audio descriptions are not available.

Simple language
We try to write texts in simple and generally understandable language. However, due to the complexity of the content, this is unfortunately not always possible.


Feedback and contact details

If you notice any deficiencies or improvements with regard to compliance with the accessibility requirements, you can contact the Media and Public Relations Department of the Ilmenau University of Technology. We are always grateful for tips and suggestions for improvement. We will endeavour to implement requests for corrections and suggestions as soon as possible.
