    Bronze

    Another important public institution in Austria was certified by WACA. The website of the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology was retroactively optimised in terms of accessibility criteria and received the WACA Bronze Certificate. The AIT is Austria’s largest non-university research institution and the leading expert on central infrastructure issues among European institutions. It’s nice to see that research institutes also promote access to information for everyone. Due to the size and complexity of the website as well as the partly academic and international content, this was certainly not an easy task. Congratulations for this achievement!

    The website of the Healthy Austria Fund (FGÖ) – a division of Gesundheit Österreich GmbH – is highly accessible and compliant with the WCAG 2.1 - AA guidelines. The new FGÖ website was thus awarded the WACA Silver Certificate. Many congratulations to the people in charge for this great and outstanding achievement. It is extremely important, especially in these times, to make the tasks of the FGÖ (funding agency, competence centre as well as hub for practitioners, scientists and politicians in the field of health promotion) accessible to all people.

  • wu.ac.at

    Bronze

    The Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU) is the first major university in Austria to be awarded a WACA certificate. The website of the WU is very complex and contains many subpages to cater for different target groups, from students to researchers, to employees to the general public, and to display everything from academic sections to study information to the research portal. Adapting it to the international criteria for accessibility was quite a challenge, but WU was able to achieve this goal. Congratulations on this achievement!

  • fh-krems.ac.at

    Silber

    For the first time, a university institution has been certified by WACA and the certification body TÜV Austria. The website of the IMC University of Applied Sciences Krems has been designed to be highly accessible and therefore perfectly accessible for all users. Congratulations on the WACA Silver Certificate and on leading the way for other university institutions! The Lower Austrian University of Applied Sciences not only focuses on diversity and cosmopolitanism offline, but also online, in order to enable people with disabilities to access information and education.

  • stipendium.at

    Silber

    The website of the Austrian Study Grant Authority complies with the WCAG 2.1-AA guidelines to a very high degree and was awarded the WACA Silver certificate. With this, another public institution sets an example in fulfilling the Austrian Web Accessibility Act (WZG). The only feature that is not yet accessible to every user is the online application form. However, since this is an external system that the website operator cannot access, this functionality was not included in the scope of the audit.

  • nightjet.com

    Silber

    The German and English versions of the website of the Nightjet – the night train of the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) – are very accessible and comply with the WCAG 2.1-AA guidelines. Congratulations to obtaining the WACA Silver certificate! It should be noted that the subsite tickets.oebb.at was not included in the scope of the audit as the website operator has no influence on this external tool. Moreover, it is not part of the nightjet.com website due to the different URL. As this functionality is a very important part of the website, however, no WACA Gold certificate can be awarded.

  • kija-noe.at

    Silber

    The online presence of the Ombudsoffice for Children and Youths for Lower Austria (NÖ kija) based in St. Pölten was completely relaunched and subsequently subjected to an independent WACA certification process. As a result, the website was found to be very accessible. Many congratulations to the persons in charge as well as to the developers for receiving the WACA Silver certificate.

    Silber

    The website of the State Ombudsman Board of Vorarlberg is highly compliant with the accessibility guidelines of WCAG 2.0 conformity level AA and was therefore awarded the WACA Silver certificate.

  • EQS Integrity Line

    Silber

    The web-based whistleblower platform EQS Integrity Line of the internationally active EQS Group based in Germany has been awarded the WACA Silver certificate for its German and English language versions. This application is accessible to all users and is highly compliant with the WCAG 2.1 criteria with AA conformity. The platform is offered as a B2B solution and is customised for each client. WACA has tested and certified the general test version for all applications by way of example.

    The Austrian Association in Support of the Blind and Visually Impaired is the largest self-help organisation for the visually impaired in Austria. In order to particularly address the needs of the target group, great attention was paid to compliance with the WCAG guidelines and additional operating aids were integrated when relaunching the website of the organisation as well as that of the associated senior citizens’ home "Waldpension".
    These efforts were audited and checked by independent, qualified auditors in a two-stage process. Both websites were awarded the highest WACA level in Gold and thus serve as role models for digital accessibility.

    Silber

    The website of Pfizer Corporation Austria GmbH is very accessible for people with disabilities as well as for all users in general. The digital accessibility of pfizer.at was therefore awarded the WACA Silver certificate. We warmly congratulate the Austrian subsidiary of the international pharmaceutical company on setting such an example. Information about health and medication in particular should be easily accessible to everyone.

    The central online presence of the Austrian National Tourist Office (Österreich Werbung), which promotes Austria as a tourist destination, was retrospectively adapted to guarantee accessibility for all users to this important online platform.

    The website of the Patient Ombudsman of the Medical Association of Vienna complies exactly with the WCAG 2.0 - AA guidelines and thus received the first WACA Gold certificate from the certification body TÜV Austria.

    Bronze

    Once again, a REWE International AG website received an award. Congratulations! The online presence of AGM, the "ADEG Grossmarkt", was retrospectively rendered accessible and certified with the WACA Bronze certificate. This is already the 8th website of the international retail group to be awarded a WACA certificate. The company is very committed to digital accessibility, which requires a considerable additional effort in the case of already existing websites – this deserves some respect.

    The BKMS® Incident Reporting of Business Keeper GmbH was awarded the first WACA certificate of the WCAG 2.1 - AA version. The whistleblower system is part of the holistic compliance platform BKMS® Compliance System and at the same time the first WACA-certified web application from Germany.

  • rewe-group.jobs

    Bronze

    The international REWE Group has now also made its job platform accessible and received the WACA Bronze Certificate for it. This is already the 7th certificate for websites of REWE International AG and means that no job seekers will be excluded from the company's online offers in future. This represents a very positive step, especially in times when skilled labour is scarce, and will certainly also benefit the company's employer branding.

    Silber

    The first digital agency to receive the WACA certificate. The agency Q2E from St. Pölten specialises in web accessibility and has also created its own website according to the international WCAG guidelines. Due to the increasing requirements in the digital world, it is setting a good example for agencies to also deal with web accessibility and automatically design websites and mobile applications to be accessible. Congratulations to Q2E and its employees.

    Silber

    The website of the University of Applied Sciences (FH) of the Vocational Training Institute (BFI) Vienna almost fully meets the requirements for accessible websites according to WCAG 2.0 – AA. For the first time in Austria a university institution has thus been WACA-certified. Since the last audit, all necessary modifications have successfully been implemented.
    Congratulations to the FH of the BFI Vienna! They set an example for many other educational institutions and universities that still have some way to go to be accessible to all users.

    Silber

    The website of the Lower Austrian Parliament fulfils the accessibility criteria according to the international W3C guidelines (WCAG 2.0, conformance level AA) to a high degree and was thus certified with the WACA Silver certificate. It would even have reached the gold level, but the videos of the state parliament sessions included a tool that was not accessible. However, this tool will be replaced soon and therefore the website will then be compliant with the new WZG.

    Congratulations on this website. The Lower Austrian Parliament acts as a role model for many other public institutions in Austria regarding inclusion and participation for all people on the Internet.

  • infrastruktur.oebb.at

    Gold

    The first WACA certificate in Gold is awarded to the website of ÖBB-Infrastruktur Aktiengesellschaft. Congratulations on this outstanding achievement!
    This website is fairly comprehensive and was made accessible according to WCAG 2.0 - AA retrospectively - a particular challenge for the developers. This online presence constitutes a model for many other companies to make information more accessible for people with disabilities. Excluded from the audit were external websites with a different URL as well as internal areas.

  • viadonau.org

    Silber

    The website of via donau – the Österreichischen Wasserstraßen-Gesellschaft mbH – is highly accessible and has therefore been awarded the WACA Silver Level.

    This makes via donau the second public institution to be certified according to the international WCAG criteria. Congratulations on this achievement! This website should set a standard for many other public websites to ensure that no one will be deprived of information on the web in the future. External content (Blog, DoRIS and DLP) was excluded from the audit and therefore not certified.

  • cloud.fabasoft.com

    Silber

    The first web application to receive the WACA certificate. The web-based application of the Linz-based company Fabasoft largely complies with the WCAG 2.0 - AA requirements and was thus recognised with the Silver certificate. This application does not exclude any users and allows everyone to use it. Due to the complexity of the user interface, however, it is recommended that keyboard users read the corresponding help page. Due to the improvements made during the certification process, it was possible to generally increase the quality of the Fabasoft product.
    Congratulations! This shows that software applications can and should also be designed in an accessible way.

  • wko.at

    Bronze

    The website of the Austrian Economic Chambers (WKO) complies with the WCAG 2.0 conformance level AA and was awarded the Bronze certificate. Congratulations to the developers – achieving this was a challenge, as the website is extremely large and very complex. The WKO sets a good example and can be considered a role model with regards to accessibility.
    The certificate does not include various microsites or campaign sites of wko.at which have a different subdomain, CMS or design.

    The website of ÖBB-Personenverkehr AG is highly accessible and consequently received the WACA Silver certificate. External contents concerning the schedule of trains (SCOTTY) and ticket bookings and reservations are excluded from the certificate, as the website operator has no control over these tools. These are independent websites and therefore not part of the website oebb.at.
    The website was re-certified in 2021 and the WACA certificate is valid again for 3 years. Short review audits are carried out annually to maintain this.
