Delimitations at Högskolan Väst:
- Time-dependent media (e.g. video and audio), with or without the possibility of interaction, published before September 23, 2020, are exempted from the application of the law according to the DOS regulation.
- Making available course activities in recorded form, e.g. introductions, live lectures, seminars, etc., which are only available to course participants for rehearsal purposes during the current course at HV, is not covered by our requirement for text and visual interpretation. The delimitation only applies if the area of use is limited to a designated and limited group of participants and when the material must be distributed to the participants quickly for it to fulfil its purpose
- The same applies to all live broadcasts, i.e. streamed lectures, zoom connections, etc. that are not recorded and distributed afterwards. Live broadcast refers to all events you have to participate in at a given time (synchronously) to participate.
- Digital services from third parties that have neither been funded nor developed by the university, for example, links in Canvas to external websites with material completely without the involvement or funding of Högskolan Väst, are not covered by the requirement for accessibility adaptation.
- Materials produced by students such as degree theses, PowerPoint presentations, video productions, essays etc. are exempt from the requirement for accessibility adaptation but the use of accessibility-adapted templates should be encouraged such as Word and ppt templates.
- Analogously produced material such as e.g. use of a whiteboard, drawings/sketches etc. do not need to be adapted.
- If there is a course participant in the current course group with a NAIS-certificate, the accessibility of the material needs to be adapted to a greater extent and is done in agreement with FUNKA, paid for by the institution.
In all other cases where media material created during a course is used at a later time or in other contexts, it is covered by the requirement for accessibility adaptation.
