Declaration of availability


The Villa Decius Institute of Culture undertakes to ensure the availability of its website in accordance with the provisions of the Act of 4 April 2019 on the digital accessibility of websites and mobile applications of public entities.

The declaration of accessibility applies to the website
Website publication date: 2019-08-29
Last major update date: 2022-06-14

Status in terms of compliance with the law

The website is partially compliant with the Act of 4 April 2019 on the digital accessibility of websites and mobile applications of public entities due to incompatibilities or inclusions listed below.

Requirements not met:
- some of the graphics do not have alternative texts
- the hierarchy of headings may not be maintained in some documents
- “Virtual Walk” is not available digitally. The virtual walk is made with the use of matterport technology, which does not meet some WCAG 2.1 requirements, such as the lack of focus[2] . Ensuring the availability of this function would be very costly, due to the necessity of creating a new virtual walk with the use of different technology. We plan to implement a new virtual walk by May 31, 2023.

Requirements excluded:
- maps are excluded from the obligation to ensure accessibility

Preparation of the declaration of availability

Date of drawing up the declaration: 2020-09-15.

The declaration was prepared on the basis of a study conducted by an external entity: Piotr Dec Pollyart Professional websites.

Date of last review of the declaration: 2023-03-30.
