The website is largely accessible for people with disabilities.

Access Keys

On there are access keys (key combinations) defined that permit navigation with the keyboard:

1 = To select department (horizontal navigation)

2 = To content

5 = To search

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

7 = To other information

8 = To language selection

L = Read page aloud

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:
