This statement about accessibility applies to the Robert Koch Institute website currently available at www.coronawarn.app.
The Robert Koch Institute takes efforts to make its website accessible in accordance with the German Disability Discrimination Act (Behindertengleichstellungsgesetz, BGG) and Accessible Information Technology Regulation (Barrierefreie-Informationstechnik-Verordnung, BITV 2.0). According to an internal test, the design of the website available at www.coronawarn.app is not fully accessible currently. Once the revision of this Robert Koch Institute website has been completed, an independent BITV testing organisation will test its accessibility. The result of the test will then be published here.
