Ordinance on the Creation of Barrier-Free Information Technology of Rhineland-Palatinate (BITV RP) of June 3, 2019

Pursuant to Section 1 (2) of the BITV in conjunction with the Implementing Decision (EU) 2018/1523 of the Commission of the European Union of October 11, 2018 (L256/105), Annex, the following is declared on barrier-free accessibility:

1. Name of the public body
Bingen University of Applied Sciences – public corporation
Berlinstraße 109
55411 Bingen am Rhein

2. State of compatibility with accessibility requirements
The website and the related mobile applications are compatible with accessibility in part.

3. Content that is not barrier-free

  •     It does not have a version in simple language.
  •     It does not have a version in sign language.
  •     The font size cannot be variably adjusted via the user’s own individual controls.
  •     Videos do not always have subtitles.
  •     Alternative texts will be added in some places.

The deliberation procedure pursuant to Section 4 of the BITV and Article 5 (2) of the DIRECTIVE (EU) 2016/2102 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 26 October 2016 has been carried out. The assessment showed that it would be not economically viable to upgrade the functions of the existing website, because this would incur enormous costs. When the website is relaunched again, the barrier-free elements the public body feels are missing will be included in the tender procedure. 

On August 29, 2019, the administration agreed with the representative of the severely handicapped at Bingen UAS that until the relaunch of the website, reasonable and affordable measures to optimise accessibility will be continuously developed.
