Prior to the Swedish elections, we have reviewed the websites of the political parties in the Swedish parliament, to see how accessible they are. Unfortunately, they have not gotten any better since last election – rather the opposite.
The Norwegian monitoring agency for web accessibility has asked Funka to further develop the guidelines, texts and illustrations for accessibility support that we have produced in previous assignments. In addition, we will support the further development of the information structure on the website where the material is presented.
In a project financed by the Norwegian Directorate for Children, Youth and Family Affairs, Funka will create training material based on user experiences. By simulating how persons with neuropsychiatric conditions experience life, we can raise awareness among our clients and others.

Sandra Eriksson, accessibility expert with a focus on assistive technology at Funka, passed the written test for certification organized by the IAAP. She can now call herself a Web Accessibility Specialist. Here, she tells us about her exam anxiety.
Imagine if the tools used to create websites and intranets would have built-in accessibility from the beginning, how much easier life would be! Soon, it can be a reality.
