Instructions for freedom from barriers

Accessibility

As of December 2016, the content of stadt-zuerich.ch has been presented with a revamped design. The pages load and are rendered according to the size of the user’s screen (so-called responsive design).

stadt-zuerich.ch continues to be barrier-free to a large extent. The certification (AA) Access for all is set to be renewed in 2017. 

Access keys

On www.stadt-zuerich.ch there are access keys (key combinations) defined that permit navigation with the keyboard:

1 = To content

2 = To search

3 = To select department (horizontal navigation)

5 = To auxiliary navigation (e.g. Contact or Jobs)

6 = To other information (content in the right-hand margin)

7 = To language selection (e.g. English)

L = Read out the site with ReadSpeaker (requires Flash Player)

How the access keys work

This is how the access keys work in Internet Explorer 9:

  • Press ALT + access key
  • Now you can navigate forwards with TAB and back with SHIFT + TAB to the individual links
  • To go to a link, press ENTER.

Mac users should use the CTRL key instead of the ALT key

Various Browsers

Every browser has its own access-keys. Please look up this wikipedia article.

Partial conformity

Some content has not been implemented entirely free of barriers. This mainly concerns applications that will be made accessible in the future. The relevant content is not part of the certified departments. People with disabilities will be offered the following contact options for those departments:
