Accessibility Statement

The Technical University of Munich is committed to making its websites accessible, in accordance with Bayerische Verordnung über die elektronische Verwaltung und die barrierefreie Informationstechnik (BayEGovV). This accessibility statement applies to www.tum.de, www.150.tum.de, and www.professoren.tum.de.

Compliance status

These websites are partially compliant with Bayerische Verordnung über die elektronische Verwaltung und die barrierefreie Informationstechnik (BayEGovV). The non-compliances and the exemptions are listed below.

Non-accessible content

  • Partially missing alt-attributes for images, tables, control elements and layout graphics.
  • Information in easy language and sign language is missing.
  • There may be errors in the heading hierarchy or links may be incomprehensible.
  • Not all pdf documents are accessible without barriers.
  • Full audio descriptions, full text alternatives or subtitles are not available in all embedded videos.
  • When resizing text, content and functionality are partly lost.
  • Additional content that appears and disappears in coordination with keyboard focus or pointer hover does not always remain accessible.
  • Words and sections in other languages are not marked.

Reasons for inaccessible content

The web presence is currently undergoing a relaunch. A revision of the existing websites is therefore no longer useful.
