We aim to guarantee the accessibility of our online service by ensuring that it meets the statutory requirements specified in the Act on the Provision of Digital Services.

  • The YTK.fi website meets the statutory requirements to a large extent.

    Currently, the OmaYTK online service does not meet all critical requirements. However, the service is being developed and a new version will be published in the autumn of 2020.

  • The website contains some appendices and PDF forms that do not fully meet the requirements for accessibility. Most of these appendices and forms have been published prior to 23 September 2018. A plan has been drafted to change the format of the appendices and forms, and they will be updated within a reasonable time.

    The website includes some images, infographics and videos with no alt text, subtitles or closed captions available. Alt texts, closed captions and subtitles will be added.
