This accessibility statement applies to the website published by Toll Collect GmbH at www.toll-collect.de.
As a public body as defined in Directive (EU) 2016/2102, we make every effort to make our website fully accessible in compliance with the requirements of the German Equality for Persons with Disabilities Act (BGG) and the Barrier-Free Information Technology Ordinance (BITV 2.0) implementing Directive (EU) 2016/2102.
Compliance status with BITV requirements
The accessibility requirements are set out in Sections 3 Paragraphs 1 to 4 and 4 of BITV 2.0, which was enacted based on Section 12d of the BGG.
Compliance with the requirements is being evaluated based on a BITV test conducted by a certified testing body alongside the website’s development.
The evaluation has shown that the website does not yet comply with the aforementioned requirements due to the following discrepancies. Toll Collect is planning to relaunch the website in order to rectify the stated accessibility limitations.
Not all interactive control elements, such as links and buttons, have names and roles that can be read by screen readers.
There is no clearly visible control element to pause the automatic content sliders (carousels) used in various areas of the website.
Content on hover or focus
Content that is activated by cursor hover or keyboard focus cannot be closed without changing the focus position.
The labels of form fields are not clearly linked to the associated input fields for screen readers to read them. There is currently no autocomplete function for fields that refer to the users themselves. Error messages in the forms are not linked to the labels of the affected fields. In some cases, fields are not labelled. For some forms, a character string, referred to as a CAPTCHA, has to be entered in order to submit the forms. For these image-based CAPTCHAs, there are no alternatives.
HTML structural elements
The structure of the headers is currently not optimised for screen readers. Lists are not labelled in a way that can be read by screen readers.
The HTML syntax is not optimised for screen readers.
The contrast ratio for some headers, buttons, continuous text links and form fields does not meet the requirement of 4.5:1 or 3:1.
For some link texts, it is not apparent that they trigger the opening of a PDF.
This feature is intended for truck drivers and explains how to use the On-Board Unit. The pages do not adjust to the screen size of smartphones and smaller tablets. As a separate module, the tutorial has its own navigation that differs from the navigation structure of the rest of the website.
Downloadable PDF documents
Documents that were created before July 2020 are not yet barrier-free. When updates to these documents become necessary in the future, their accessibility will also be ensured.
Tables are not structured or labelled in a way that screen readers can appropriately render them.
The language cannot be selected using the keyboard. In addition, repeated blocks of content cannot be skipped using the keyboard. The keyboard focus is not clearly visible or not present.
The primary language of a page is not declared in the HTML code. Words of other languages are not labelled with the corresponding language attribute.
Videos that were published on our website before July 2020 do not have subtitles. When updates to these videos become necessary in the future, their accessibility will also be ensured.
