Known Accessibility Issues

List and explanation of the problems encountered when implementing the accessibility of these websites

Content Not Accessible to People With Disabilities

  • Apart from the main pages, alternative text-based content for images and tables may be missing. There may also be errors in content hierarchy and links may be unintelligible.
  • PDF documents created before 09/23/2018 have not yet been converted to a fully accessible format.
  • Some documents have been provided by institutions of the LMU, which are not yet all available in a fully accessible version.
  • Many of our videos also lack subtitles and audio descriptions.
  • We will be adding written directions for the maps used to give directions.
  • Quotes are often not indicated as such using the appropriate HTML tag.
  • Responsive design (for viewing on mobile devices) is only partially available for the websites, screen orientation is otherwise limited to landscape format. For non-responsive pages, texts do not wrap correctly in a small viewport.
  • Fields for inputting user data are not always sufficiently designated as such.
  • Words or passages in other languages are not always indicated as such.
  • Because of the Google Search plugin, the criteria for "valid HTML text" is not being fulfilled.


All LMU websites are currently undergoing a complete relaunch. It therefore no longer makes sense to revise the existing websites.

The deficiencies of the old website have been listed above.

Creation Date: 09/22/2019
