Declaration on accessibility

Legal Name
University of Bayreuth


The website partly complies with § 1 BayBITV. The non-compliant web pages are listed below.

Content not accessible barrier-free:

  • The homepages lack information in plain language and sign language.
    Alt attributes for images, tables, controls, and layout graphics are sometimes missing on the pages.
  • There may be errors in the content hierarchy or links may be incomprehensible.
  • Not all documents are available in a barrier-free version.
  • There are currently no complete audio descriptions, full-text alternatives, or subtitles available for embedded videos.
  • Contrast levels in texts and operating elements are only sufficient in part.
  • Displayed content can only be partially operated with the keyboard - not all areas can be skipped.
  • Alternative access routes are lacking in part.
  • The assignment of table cells is also missing.
  • The labelling of form elements cannot be determined programmatically.
  • Keyboard shortcuts cannot be disabled or customized.
  • Moving content cannot be switched off.
  • Words and sections in other languages are not marked up.

Justification for inaccessible content:
As a university we have an extensive and diverse online presence. This was largely released before 23 September 2018 and consequently does not correspond to the current standard of barrier-free accessibility. The conversion of the standard pages to a barrier-free website will take place over the next few months.

Notification of inaccessible content:
We strive, within the confines of what is currently technically possible, to achieve barrier-free accessibility. If you still have problems reading content, please inform us via
