Status of compatibility with the requirements

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is not accessible for the following reasons:
Graphics or images included in the pages are currently not fully supplemented with text descriptions. Included videos currently do not have subtitles or transcription available. For newly posted videos, we will make every effort to add subtitles as soon as possible after publication.

PDF, Word, Excel or PowerPoint documents that are offered for download as part of the website are not all currently available in accessible versions. We will make every effort to create newly posted PDF files in an accessible version or to replace them with such a version.
