General issues

The issues described here mainly apply to older content on our website, for example, news articles from 2018. Our ambition is to solve most of these problems when we update our website in the autumn of 2022.

  • Headings and heading levels are not always used correctly, which can cause difficulties for users with cognitive or visual impairments.
  • Document links and links to external pages do not always describe where they lead or notify that they will open in a new window.
  • Images with meaningful content have no description.
  • Text is displayed in some cases against the background image – these also lack descriptive text.
  • In some cases, text is displayed against a background image that contains text or distracting graphic patterns.
  • Some pieces of text are written in a language other than the surrounding text, but are not marked for this in code, which causes problems for screen readers.
  • Some pieces of text are written only in capital letters.
  • Some links lead to external websites without signalling it.
  • Users navigating with a keyboard could experience problems due to various technical conditions.


  • Some downloadable files are not accessible. This mainly applies to Excel files containing media statistics. See the section on disproportionate burden for more information.


  • Some video clips are only in English and lack Swedish options.
  • Some video clips are only in Swedish or another Scandinavian language and lack English options.
  • A few video clips that need subtitles, transcription, or sight interpretation are lacking them.

It is our ambition to fix all known accessibility problems by 31 December 2022.

Disproportionate burden

Nordicom invokes an exemption for disproportionate burden in accordance with §12 in the accessibility regulations for the content described below. If you need any of this content in a version accessible for you, please contact us.

  • Excel files with statistics
    Nordicom offers Nordic statistics on media presented in Excel files. We assess it to be a disproportionate burden for us to make these files accessible, since the statistics are very complex and since we have limited resources.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

The content described below is not fully accessible, but is exempt in accordance with §9 in the accessibility regulations.

  • Documents published before 23 September 2018
    Publications and other documents published before 23 September 2018 are not accessible.
  • Video published before 23 September 2020
    Video clips published before 23 September 2020 are not sight interpreted and, in some cases, not subtitled.
  • Livestreams
    Nordicom sometimes livestreams from conferences and similar events. Livestreams are not subtitled, nor sight interpreted.
