Accessibility

The content of the website of the Court of Audit is designed with the purpose to provide universal access to all of the published information – to anyone, at all times, and free of charge. Since the principle of universal access is limited by the health conditions of the users (i.e. visual, motion, hearing, cognitive and linguistic limitations) and technical limitations, we paid special attention to them and tried to adjust the website by considering the following recommendations:

  • font size may be adjusted,
  • key images are equipped with descriptions,
  • there are no moving pictures (GIFs),
  • names of the links are descriptive,
  • videos are mostly subtitled.

The website is optimised for multi-device browsing (computer, tablet, mobile phone) and compatible with different website browsers and software. Recommended is the use of the latest version of website browsers whenever it is possible to provide a better support to the users with disabilities and special needs. We aim to improve accessibility and usability of our website, though some elements could not be optimised to ensure full access:

  • documents relating to audits (reports) are published in the PDF format and are added short summaries in easy accessible text formats (doc and docx files),
  • entry page includes three elements with an auto-rotating slider, which has a limited possibility of a manual turn-off.

Efficiency in preventing light pollution of the environment

In December 2017, the SAI Slovenia published the audit report on efficiency of Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning in preventing light pollution. The audit report "shed a light" on this often overlooked part of pollution caused by human activities.


The audit revealed the following:

  • Slovenia is one of few countries which legally regulated the field of light pollution already in 2007. Objectives, 3 times less sky glow and 20% reduction in energy consumption were set to be achieved by 2016;
  • However, restrictions pertaining to electric power do no longer ensure pollution reduction due to development of more energy efficient illuminants;
  • The regulation does not define admissible light spectrum or colour temperature. Colour of the illumination however strongly relates to impact on nature, humans and the way how light disperse in space;
  • The Ministry does not monitor the situation in the field of light pollution regularly and comprehensively. However, the Inspectorate exercises regular control but not enough for comprehensive monitoring of the situation;
  • SAI Slovenia has recommended that Ministry should better identify the situation and to redefine the applicability of current legislation and to adopt necessary changes.

Ministry has fully accepted the criticism and committed to implement recommendations.
