Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible:

  • PDF files integrated in the website
  • Videos integrated in the website
  • Not all of the currently used shades of color achieve the required contrast at a browser zoom factor of 100 percent.

Reasons:

  • Due to the large number of PDF documents made available that were produced prior to 23.09.2018, it has so far not been possible to transpose all of these into an accessible format. These are successively superceded by accordingly modified versions.
  • It has not been possible yet to add audio descriptions to the currently available video material.

Accessible alternatives:

  • In the event of non-accessible enrollment documents, please contact the Student Registration Office. In the case of non-accessible exam regulations, please contact the Central Examinations Office. In all other cases, please use the feedback form below.
  • The integrated videos are YouTube files with the option of displaying automatic subtitles.
  • A strong magnification via the browser zoom function offers the necessary contrast. We are working on a completely barrier-free solution for this issue.
