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.

The effects of the last year’s audit addressing the issue of prostate cancer carried out by the Court of Audit

One year later, in 2018, the Court reviewed the changes in this field.

In Movember 2017, the Court of Audit issued an audit report addressing the issue of prostate cancer. One year later, in 2018, the Court reviewed the changes in this field. We are well pleased that the effects of our demands and recommendations are already evident, which will thus contribute to more efficient treatment of urology patients in future. In 2018, the University Medical Centre Ljubljana acquired a robotic system for robot-assisted prostate cancer surgeries, moreover, the number of urologists within the public healthcare network increased by 6.5 percent compared to 2017 and almost by 10 percent according to 2016. In addition to 11 posts for urology specialists that were published already during the period covered by the audit, there were 14 new posts for urology specialists in training published after the completion of the audit, which will further increase the number of urologists within the healthcare network. Last year’s audit namely established that the lack of urologists is one of key reasons for long waiting periods in the field of urology.

Beside positive effects, we also welcome cooperation among stakeholders. A constructive dialogue among auditees, civil society and experts will bring benefit to solving the problems in the concerned field and at the same time bring about more quality treatment of users of healthcare services and more efficient use of public funds.
