Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible:

  • PDF files integrated in the website
  • Videos integrated in the website
  • Some areas of the website have insufficient color contrasts.

Reasons:

  • Due to the large number of PDF documents made available that were produced prior to 23.09.2018, it has so far not been possible to transpose all of these into an accessible format. These are successively superceded by accordingly modified versions.
  • Unfortunately, we have no or only very limited influence on PDFs supplied by external providers (e.g. publications, manuscripts, job offers).
  • It has not been possible yet to add audio descriptions to the currently available video material.

Accessible alternatives:

  • In the event of non-accessible enrollment documents, please contact the Student Registration Office. In the case of non-accessible exam regulations, please contact the Central Examinations Office. In all other cases, please use the feedback form below.
  • The integrated videos are YouTube files with the option of displaying automatic subtitles.
  • The web presence of the faculty and its professorships is currently being revised and transferred to a new content management system (CMS) that meets the basic standards and technical specifications. Due to the large number of websites, which are mostly very extensive, the changeover is taking place gradually.
