PoL – Physics of Life | Accessibility

Declaration on Accessibility

The PoL makes every effort to make its website physics-of-life.tu-dresden.de accessible without barriers in accordance with the national legislation implementing Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council.

Issuing of this Declaration on Accessibility

This declaration was issued on 4 September 2020. The last verification of this website by means of self-assessment was carried out on that same day.

The basis for the issuing of this Declaration on Accessibility is a self-assessment of the website's compatibility with the requirements of the BfWebG in accordance with BITV 2.0, carried out by PoL.

Status of compatibility with the requirements of the BITV

The web presence of the PoL does not yet fully correspond to the current state of accessibility. A new version of our website is already in the making and professional support for accessibility will be sought.

Content that is not deemed accessible

  • Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) attributes for orientation within elements are not available.
  • Alternatives for images and graphic elements are not fully available.
  • Accessibility by keyboard is mostly available but not necessarily in an efficient fashion.
  • Words and sections in other languages are not marked (Legal Notice and Privacy Policy pages).
  • Contrasts between background and text might not always be high enough.


If you notice any shortcomings with regard to accessible design, you can report these shortcomings to our webmaster via e-mail.
