Web Accessibility

This declaration on accessibility applies to the Tanzarchiv Berlin website published by Tanzpakt Berlin e.V. at https://tanzarchiv-berlin.de.

As a publicly funded institution within the meaning of Directive (EU) 2016/2102, we endeavor to make our websites accessible in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Disability Equality Act (BGG) and the Barrier-free Information Technology Ordinance (BITV 2.0) for the implementation of Directive (EU) 2016/2102.

Status of compatibility with the requirements

The accessibility requirements are set out in Sections 3 (1) to (4) and 4 of BITV 2.0, which was issued on the basis of Section 12d BGG.

Compliance with the requirements is based on a barrier-free design and a barrier-free implementation by Oliver Vaupel ovau design studio Düsseldorf

Due to this creation, the website is partially compatible with the aforementioned requirements due to the following exceptions.

The content listed below is not barrier-free for the following reasons:

  • The downloadable PDFs are not accessible according to BITV 2.0.
  • The embedded videos are not compatible with the success criteria,, and, as they do not contain audio description, captions/subtitles and/or text description.
  • Some of the texts in the German version contain many English-language expressions. A technical editor’s knowledge is required to mark these up accordingly. An attempt is being made to work on this bit by bit. Some of the texts are generated by the CMS WordPress. It is currently not possible to incorporate a language attribute here. Fail of success criteria BITV 2.0

Further notes:

  • The alternative texts for the images are sometimes very detailed. This can be annoying in some cases.
  • The footnotes of many articles in the “Thinking Space“ section could not be made accessible due to a lack of technical editors. The footnotes are therefore listed below the text under the heading “Notes“ as a numbered list. The term “Note“ and the respective number of the reference are shown in brackets after the references in the text to the footnote so that the footnote can be found.
