Universität Hamburg seeks to make its website,www.fundus.uni-hamburg.de, fully accessible to people with disabilities. This process is based on the Hamburg act on equal treatment for disabled persons (Hamburgisches Gesetz zur Gleichstellung behinderter Menschen, HmbGGbM) and the ordinance on barrier-free information technology (Barrierefreie-Informationstechnik-Verordnung, BITV 2.0).
The verification of compliance with the requirements is based on a self-assessment carried out between 8.9.2020 and 10.9.2020.
Based on the review, the website is only partially compatible with the above requirements. The design and structural elements were subjected to an automated accessibility test and adapted according to the recommendations.
Barriers that cannot be checked automatically (navigability via keyboard, mapping of the content structure with the help of the DOM structure, etc.) are increasingly taken into account in the course of the further development of the website in order to gradually improve the accessibility of the website.
The collection portal is not completely barrier-free due to a limitation of resources. In addition the content presented origins from various sources and cannot be presented completely barrier-free due to the quantity of objects. As a scientific resource, the website contains technical terms that cannot be translated into easy language.

The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is establishing an ombudsperson’s office. The ombudsperson will receive information and complaints about existing barriers, play the role of an independent arbitration body, and work with those affected to develop accessibility solutions.
