AJPES is committed to making the website www.ajpes.si accessible in accordance with the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications Act, hereinafter referred to as the ZDSMA. (Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, Nos. 30/18, 95/21 - ZInfV-A, 189/21 - ZDU-1M and 18/23 - ZDU-1O). This Accessibility Statement applies to the AJPES website, available at www.ajpes.si.
Level of compliance
The AJPES website partially complies with the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications Act. In order to ensure a positive user experience, we have followed the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1), which are divided into three levels of compliance: A, AA and AAA. AJPES aims to be at least AA compliant.
Accessibility services offered
The website, with the customisation provided by the system, allows:
- to select the colour contrast (default/custom),
- to select the font size (standard, double, triple),
- partial navigation of the website with the keyboard,
- programmatic recognition of the language of the website,
- descriptive links,
sto navigate using a keyboard, search for content and find out where they are on the site,
- access to online forms,
- optimisation for specific readers,
- for the display of a table of contents and a contact form,
- for responsive design - the layout of the content adapts to the resolution of the screen,
- content to be displayed using user-friendly technologies (e.g. screen readers, braille),
- predictable website performance,
- the use of different levels of headings,
- to see where you are on the website (99% breadcrumb).
AJPES is committed to ensuring that the functionality of the portal, including accessibility services, remains intact in all recent (supported) browsers. For the best user experience, we recommend the use of Chrome-based browsers (Chrome, Edge, Brave, Vivaldi).
The accessibility of the AJPES website is constantly monitored and individual accessibility elements are continuously improved. However, some published content and web applications do not meet all the accessibility requirements set out in the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Apps Act.
Content that is inaccessible due to disproportionate burden:
- certain documents and forms (designed for completion) in Adobe PDF or Word format,
- photographs, videos and graphics on websites are not accompanied by descriptions or alternative text,
- the website does not support the use of sign language,
- the structure of tables and headings is not always optimal,
- some software generated documents.
The lack of the ability to select different contrast schemes can be at least partially overcome by using features built into some browsers, such as “read aloud” (accessed via icon in Edge) and a special view for reading content - the “immersive reader” or “reading view” (accessible via icons (Edge) (Firefox), (Opera)).
In addition to a wide range of content, the AJPES website also offers the use of various web applications. The information services of the website are linked to various back-office systems of AJPES, services of national authorities, EU institutions and companies. Due to the number and complexity of back-end connections and the frequent changes in content, the adaptation of all web applications would, according to the self-assessment, represent a disproportionate burden, especially in terms of the significant financial implications incurred and the availability of human resources required by AJPES. In the future, AJPES plans to redesign the portal, and will endeavour to comply with the ZDSMA as much as possible.

The Statement was last reviewed and updated on 15 June 2023.
