Top grade for inclusion in the net

With a score of 99.25, Publicis Pixelpark again scores top marks in the BITV test for EUTB

German version

The website teilhabeberatung.de, which was developed by Publicis Pixelpark for the complementary Independent Participation Advice (EUTB), received excellent 99.25 out of possible 100 points in its accessibility test. The EUTB is a project of the Society for Social Business Consulting (gsub mbH) on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, in which the counseling of people with disabilities is taken over in peer counseling by other people with disabilities.

"Together with Publicis Pixelpark, we have created an outstanding example of a barrier-free online medium. teilhabeberatung.de enables people with restricted participation to fully participate in the digital information and media pool. This demonstrably confirms the score achieved in the BITV test. “Considering that 95 points already mark a very accessible offer, we can be more than proud", comments Dr. Reiner Aster, Managing Director of gsub mbH.

Olav A. Waschkies, Managing Director of Publicis Pixelpark, adds: "The subject of accessibility has been with us for years, if only because we look after five federal ministries. So it's even nicer that we've always been able to improve on the BITV test results. This is one of the reasons why we are meanwhile active as a testing center in the BITV testing association. So we are well prepared to implement the EU Directive on Accessibility to Websites and Mobile Applications of Public Agencies."

The concept and technology of teilhabeberatung.de is based on the principle "people with disabilities for people with disabilities": The frontend offers a synchronous multilingualism of everyday speech, easy language and sign language that is unique in Germany. And the backend is also consistently accessible to WCAG standards. The basis for this is the open-source content management system Drupal, which Publicis Pixelpark also supports as an Organization Member.

The project app "Teilhabeberatung" (available on the App Store and Google Play), also developed by Publicis Pixelpark, opens up almost all contents of the website at any time via smartphone, so that even in everyday situations fast help is provided: from the search for advice centers including route planning up to contacts and appointments. Like the website, the app supports multilingualism as well as language in- and output and reading functions. Another special feature of the app: all app content is automatically synchronized via an interface to the website. There is no need for duplicate maintenance and all data is always up-to-date regardless of the platform.
