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

This website is compliant with EN 301 549 V2 1.2 and the WCAG 2.1. standard, with the exceptions listed below.

Certain documents are inaccessible at the moment when they arrive for publishing on the site (documents from other authorities, documents generated by an accounting system, etc.). The website operator has the obligation to publish them regardless and therefore does so. Similarly, certain older photos and photo albums in the photo galleries lack alternate text. Certain videos inserted directly into the site may lack subtitles. Bringing these defects into compliance with the law and the rules for accessibility would be financially taxing for the operator, and therefore as allowed by § 7 of Act no. 99/2019 Sb., they have not been retroactively adjusted.

Certain information on this website is provided via documents in the PDF format. To view documents in this format, viewing software such as Adobe Reader is required. This software is freely downloadable from the Adobe website. Alternatively they can be viewed in other viewers, like Foxit Reader, PDF-XChange Viewer, and many more. Most PDF documents can also be displayed in ordinary browsers directly. The site may also contain documents in the formats of MS Office, or in some cases those of other, similar office applications as well (in .doc, .docx, .odt, .xls, .xlsx, .ods, and similar formats). Files such as these can be displayed and edited in the majority of commonly used text editors (MS Office, Libre Office, and Open Office). In some cases, they can be displayed directly within the browser in an accessible form.
