Accessibility statement

Accessibility of digital services

The site does not meet critical accessibility requirements. The most critical shortcomings relate to the ability to use the site with a keyboard.

Non-accessible content

The website is not yet fully compliant. Deficiencies exist in the following areas of accessibility criteria:

Accessibility requirements that are not met:

1.1.1 Non-text content

Grounds for non-compliance: It is not possible to add text alternatives to Instagram publications because they are not supported by the service. We are unable to add them to Facebook publications at this time, because the Sprout Social publication platform does not support text alternatives for Facebook. These deficiencies will be corrected as soon as the services support text alternatives.
