Shortcomings observed in the online service
Semantic headline structure
H1–H4 tags used in headlines are missing levels, since the anchor/jump links of the site are implemented as H2-headlines and non-anchor/jump links are implemented as H3-headlines. Because of this, the next headline following H1-headline is either H2 or H3.
Google Calendar embedded on the website www.joensuu.fi/ohjaamo doesn’t meet accessibility requirements.
Meetings of the City Council is streamed live in YouTube in address www.youtube.com/joensuunkaupunki. The meetings can be watched also afterwards in the same address. The live streamings or recordings of the Council’s meetings aren’t subtitled because this would constitute an unacceptable burden. Other videos published by the City are subtitled. The agendas and decisions of the City Council’s meetings can be read online: Read agendas and minutes (in Finnish)
All the PDF files aren’t yet accessible.
