Accessibility Statement

The National Gallery in Prague hereby undertakes to make its website accessible in compliance with Czech Act No. 99/2019 Sb., on the accessibility of websites and mobile applications and the amending of Act no. 365/2000 Sb., on public sector information systems, as well as the amending of certain other laws, as later amended. This act executes Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 October 2016, on the accessibility of the websites and mobile applications of public sector bodies.

This declaration of accessibility relates to this website

State of Compliance

The specified internet pages are partially in compliance with EN 301 549 V2 1.2 and the WCAG 2.1 standard due to insufficiently accessible content or the exceptions noted below.

Accessibility of Content

The information on the internet pages is sometimes offered in the form of documents in DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, or PDF format, chiefly because the document contains typographic elements and formatting not supported by the HTML web format, or because the document is too big, in which case we recommend that it be downloaded. PDF format documents are also more suitable for printing. In order to view PDF documents, it is possible to download, free of charge, Acrobat Reader or one of the alternative viewers (such as Foxit Reader, PDF-XChange Viewer, and many others). The majority of the documents in PDF format may also be viewed in most standard browsers. Some documents may be provided in MS Office or other similar application format (.doc, .docx, .odt, .xls, .xlsx, .ods and comparable). These files can be opened and edited with most of the standard text editors (MS Office, Libre Office, Open Office). In some cases, these types of files may also be displayed in an accessible format directly in the browser.

Some documents for publication on the web are delivered as inaccessible (from other government agencies, generated by an accounting system, etc.). The web operator nonetheless has the obligation to publish them and therefore does so. Likewise, some older photos and photo albums in the photo galleries lack alternative text descriptions. Additionally, some videos placed directly on the web may lack subtitles. Rectifying such deficiencies to bring them into compliance with the law and rules for accessibility would in these cases be too costly for the operator, and so, in accordance with Section 7 of Act No. 99/2019 Coll., these steps are not subsequently taken.
