Barrier explanation∙freity
Ein Buch mit einem Paragraphenzeichen auf dem Deckel Gesetzbuch © Lebenshilfe für Menschen mit geistiger Behinderung Bremen e.V., Illustrator Stefan Albers, Atelier Fleetinsel, 2013

The City of Jena is responsible for this Internet∙ site.

This declaration on barrier∙free access applies to

  • the Internet∙ site of the city of Jena and
  • to all sub∙pages of this Internet∙site.

There are several laws that state:

All people should be able to read pages on the Internet well.

Here in Thuringia these laws are valid:

  • Rule EU 2016/ 2102 of the European Union

  • Thuringia Law on the Barrier∙free Internet

    • Abbreviation: ThürBarrWebG

  • Thuringia Accessible Information Technology Ordinance.

    • Abbreviation: ThürBITVO

In the text on this page, we explain:

Some parts of this Internet∙site are not yet barrier-free.

But we are working on it.

So that soon all people can read the Internet∙page well.

1. these parts of the Internet∙site are not yet barrier∙free.

  • Videos:

    • There is no description of the videos.

    • That is:

    • There is no text to read and no text to hear.

  • Blind people use a computer program to read text on the Internet.

    • Tables on our site cannot be read by the computer program.

  • We sometimes make videos

    • which you can see immediately on the Internet.

    • For example, the meetings of the City Council.

    • Unfortunately, there is no text to read for that.

    • We would like to do that.

    • But we don' t have enough money for that.

2. check of the internet pages and declaration of accessibility.

We have created the barrier∙free declaration ourselves.

We used a well-known test∙method to do this.

We did that on October 21, 2020.

We reviewed the statement on October 21, 2020.
