Hi!

 

I’ll try to check, but hopefully persons from Sweden can answer!

Morton, 

Thanks for the links.  With Google Translate, (and some very rusty Danish skills) I think I understand most of this.  May I ask some clarifying questions?  (To help me understand detail that is not quite coming through the translation. ) 

1)  These are required for "public institutions".  I assume that means government, including schools.  Obviously it is not required but recommended for business.  Does the requirement extend to any other entities? 

2)  I understand these to be requirements.   What happens if the requirements are not met.  Are there laws associated with the requirements?  Or are these more like guidelines? 

3)  Can you help me understand what the difference is between Priority 1 and Priority 2?  Is Priority 1 mandatory, and Priority 2 optional?   

4)  Further when I look at the requirement for TTS on R11, it uses the (translated word) Recommendation for TTS, instead of requirement.  Can you help me understand how mandatory the TTS requirement is? 

Regards, 

Brian

Hi, Brian! 
  
Of course, here it is: 
http://www.webbriktlinjer.se/ <http://www.webbriktlinjer.se/>  
As far as I have been able to figure out this is a standard. 
  
I’ve commented a little bit, but this is in Norwegian and is therefore probably not very interesting/useful:

Morten, 

Can you please provide a reference to the Swedish standard you speak of?  And, is it just a recommendation or a standard? 

Regards, 

Brian

Hi, Harry! 
 
I totally agree. 
 
In some new Swedish guidelines for web developments (only public authorities have to follow these) accessibility is one of the categories. The first guideline say: follow WCAG 2. The other 43 accessibility guidelines cover forms, languages, links and other things. In one of the guidelines it is stated that talking websites are required! I was quite surprised when I read this! If I counted correctly, 33 of the 44 guidelines in the accessibility section are also found under usabilityJ!
