Barrier-free access to social services
As state authority of the Bavarian State Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, Family and Integration, the Bavarian Centre for Family and Welfare (ZBFS) is responsible for the social services of the Free State. These include, for example, the implementation of the Federal Parental Benefit and Parental Leave Act, the promotion of disabled people's participation in working and professional life and child and youth welfare. To ensure that all citizens have access to the information and applications of the ZBFS, a barrier-free design of the website is essential. To ensure this, T-Systems Multimedia Solutions examined selected websites of the CSO according to the BIK BITV test, which is based on the German Federal Barrier-free Information Technology Ordinance (BITV 2.0). The test not only identified problems, but also provided the ZBFS with solution recommendations on how its websites can be designed barrier-free in accordance with legal requirements.
