We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of the https://maritime-day.ec.europa.eu/index_en website. Please let us know if you encounter accessibility barriers:
Compatibility with browsers and assistive technology
The European Maritime Day website is designed to be compatible with the following assistive technologies
- the latest version of Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Brave browsers
- in combination with the latest versions of JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver and TalkBack
The accessibility of the European Maritime Day website relies on the following technologies to work with the particular combination of web browser and any assistive technologies or plugins installed on your computer:
- Navigation menu accessibility: Some content has not been properly coded for the best experience with a screen reader. We plan to fix this issue by October 2023.
- Navigation menu – accidental hover: If you accidentally hover over the navigation menu, you will not be able to dismiss or close it with just the ESC key. We plan to fix this by December 2023.
- Ambiguous navigation landmarks: When a page contains more than one navigation landmark, screen reader users will not be able to distinguish between them. We plan to fix this by October 2023.
- Inaccessible buttons in navigation menu: The top navigation menu is not entirely accessible for screen reader users: the buttons that open the menu have no accessible label or name. We plan to fix this by October 2023.
- Skiplink visibility: The skiplink is the first link on the page, but it does not become visible when it receives keyboard focus. We plan to fix this by October 2023.
