Accessibility Statement

WIENER LINIEN GmbH & Co KG is committed to making the WienMobil app accessible in accordance with the Vienna Anti-Discrimination Law, Official Gazette 35/2004, as amended, for the implementation of Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 October 2016 on the accessibility of the websites and mobile applications of public sector bodies (Official Gazette L 327 of 2.12.2016, page 1).

This Statement on Accessibility applies to the app versions of WienMobil for the Android and iOS operating systems.

Status of conformance to the requirements

Due to the incompatibilities and exceptions listed below, the WienMobil app conforms, in part, to accessibility standard AA of the “Web Content Accessibility Guidelines – WCAG 2.1” or respectively to the applicable European Standard EN 301 549 V2.1.2 (2018-08)”.

Content with accessibility barriers

The WienMobil app of WIENER LINIEN GmbH & Co KG contains areas of application some of which are not or not yet fully accessible. However, WIENER LINIEN GmbH & Co KG is committed to offering the functionality in a manner that is as accessible as possible.

a) Non-conformance with the accessibility provisions for the implementation of Directive (EU) 2016/2102

Following an external audit conducted by the agency Interface Consult GmbH in March 2021, the WienMobil app fails to comply with the provisions stipulated in WCAG 2.1 in respect of the following:

  • Largely, no landscape view available
  • No consistent navigation implemented
  • Labels of input fields are not correctly allocated in all areas
  • Enlargement of texts in the operating system is not reproduced in all areas of the app
  • Focus sequence for errors in forms sometimes not correct

Endeavours to correct these shortcomings are ongoing. All work in this regard should be completed by the end of 2022.

b) Third party contents

Any third party content that is not controlled by WIENER LINIEN GmbH is exempted from Directive (EU) 2016/2102. No assurances can be made in respect of accessibility compliance of third party content.
