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.Despite the fact that we are aiming to increase the accessibility and usability of our website to the greatest extent possible, all the elements do not provide for the optimisation of the complete accessibility.

Therefore, some published contents do not meet all the demands related to accessibility as defined by the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications Act. Those deficiencies are:

  • we use PDF format for documents:
    • audit reports and other reports with short summaries that are available in text (doc and docx documents) and
    • various presentations (i.e. infographics, posters, manuals);
  • home page provides three elements with scroll box for automatic rotation with limited use of the manual override;
  • photographs and other images are used for visual supplementing of contents related to news and articles; photographs and images are subtitled, include data about source and alternative text, but do not include detailed descriptions or transcriptions of texts, since the adjustment would cause disproportionate burden;
  • schematic presentation of organisational structure of the Court of Audit;
  • documentation of concluded public calls was not adapted, since interference with public procurement documentation of completed public calls is not allowed; when preparing the next public call, we shall follow the standards of accessibility.

Court of Audit winning the INTOSAI WGEA Award 2021 for the best environmental audit visualisation

Within the formal closure of this year’s INTOSAI Working Group on Environmental Auditing (WGEA) Assembly, the INTOSAI WGEA Award for the best visualisation in an environmental audit was presented for the first time. We are extremely proud and honoured that Slovenian SAI received first prize, namely for the best visualisation of an audit report Efficiency of long-term drinking water resources conservation. SAI Slovenia is along with SAI Indonesia the first to be granted this award, which is the result of our vision and close cooperation among the members of the whole team.

On behalf of the Court of Audit the INTOSAI WGEA Award – Inspiration in Environmental Auditing was accepted by dr. Miroslav Kranjc, Supreme State Auditor, and dr. Dijana M. Zupanc, Head of the Cabinet of the President, who in their acceptance speeches both emphasised the long-standing aim of the Court of Audit to present the findings from its audit reports in the most clear and understandable manner to the widest public. Upon the issue of the audit report Efficiency of long-term drinking water resources conservation the accompanying infographic and the short video were released, the latter including the President's announcement of the then new audit of effectiveness of reducing nitrate concentration in waters. By such means and by using other similar graphic elements we were able to establish additional connection between the two already interconnected audits.

Zupanc, Head of the Cabinet of the President of SAI Slovenia, and dr. Miroslav Kranjc, Supreme State Auditor of SAI Slovenia (the first photo); a brief glimpse of the INTOSAI WGEA virtual award winning ceremony (the second photo).

The selection of this year’s topic shows that INTOSAI WGEA recognised an ever-growing awareness of the importance of visualisation for the most efficient presentation of audit findings. The Court of Audit has been for quite some time using and producing various visualisation types and techniques which have become part of its approach applied not only to environmental but also to other audits, as well as an indispensable tool for efficient communication with different stakeholders.

The awards is a significant acknowledgement of our work at the international level, where the Court of Audit has been recognised as one of the most incisive, visionary and innovative Supreme Audit Institutions. Additionally, the award gives us considerable encouragement to pursue the set objectives also in our future operations.
