This accessibility policy applies to the Finnish Olympic Committee’s online learning environment, Oppimisareena, supplied by Mediamaisteri Oy.
This policy was published on 15 June 2021.
Accessibility means that an online service has been designed for everyone. Accessibility in the online world means the same as in the real world: Accessibility means that as diverse a group of people as possible is able to use an online service with ease.
An accessible online service is technically faultless and has a clear user interface as well as easily understandable contents.
Mediamaisteri Oy ensures the service’s accessibility through the following measures:
- Accessibility is part of our business idea.
- Accessibility is part of our internal practices
- We always offer our employees accessibility training.
- Our organisation has clear accessibility goals and responsibility levels.
- We continuously develop the accessibility of our learning environment
This website falls under the Act on the Provision of Digital Services, which requires public online services to be accessible. This means that the online services must meet the requirement levels A and AA set forth in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 criteria.
The accessibility directive that came into force in 2019 dictates that the websites and mobile applications of public sector bodies must be accessible. This act is also applied to public companies in the fields of water and energy management, transport and postal services as well as operators in the finance sector. The act will also apply to organisations that receive more than half of their funding from public bodies.
Applying the accessibility requirements was started gradually, and the Southern Finland Regional State Administrative Agency supervises that the requirements are met in Finland. The requirements of the law and the related instructions will be published on the saavutettavuusvaatimukset.fi website.
