Web accessibility means making sure that people with the widest range of capabilities can easily access information and functions available on the internet.
As a public sector organisation, the European Parliament looks to ensure equal access to information for all users, with or without disabilities, regardless of the device or software they are using and the environment they are working in so that they can use the information, services and tools we provide.
The Parliament is committed to making its websites accessible and we are actively working to improve the user experience for everyone by increasing the accessibility and usability. Part of this work involves ensuring we meet the current standards for our products and content, including those listed in the EU web accessibility directive (Official Journal of the EU), which entered into force in December 2016.
zoom in up to 300% most of the website without problems
navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
navigate most of the website using assistive technology like a screen reader or a magnifier
Despite our efforts to achieve website accessibility, certain content like videos used on some pages may not yet be optimised. We constantly monitor the accessibility of our website and we continue to make improvements to the accessibility features.
Reporting your experience will help us to further improve the accessibility of our website.
Please let us know if you encounter any problems, if you need access to inaccessible information or if you find any of our features particularly useful. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
