Accessible Digital Services: A Pilot Project

6 pagesPublished: August 9, 2023


European Accessibility Act (EU Directive 2019/882) requires that both public and private sector actors guarantee the accessibility of certain products and services. In the field of higher education IT, the European Accessibility Act is applied to most of the digital services. In many cases the sheer scale of things may feel overwhelming. This paper describes the approach of University of Helsinki IT services in tackling problems and providing solutions in the process of developing and procuring accessible digital services.
