Based on § 11 Paragraph 1 Clause 2 of the Behindertengleichstellungsgesetz (Disability Discrimination Legislation), last amended by Article 12 of the Act of 19 December 2007 (BGBI. I S. 3024), the "Verordnung zur Schaffung barrierefreier Informationstechnik nach dem Behindertengleichstellungsgesetz (Barrierefreie Informationstechnik Verordnung – BITV 2.0)" was passed on 12th September 2011. The National Museums in Berlin is striving to comply with this legislation in its website content.
On our homepage and many of our subpages we use slideshows. The user can stop any of these slideshows at any time, but not all of them at the same time. The main purpose of the slideshows is decorative, but in some cases they give information about current exhibitions or events. The same information is also available, however, under the “Exhibitions” and “Events” menus.
It is our goal to make pictures and videos completely accessible for all users. Since this website works with archives going back over a long period of time, however, complete accessibility cannot yet be guaranteed. This is particularly true of exhibition information and material under the “What’s new” menu. We ask for your understanding while our old content is still being revised.
Not all our PDF documents fulfil the accessibility requirements. We are currently working on a PDF data format for screen readers.
Town plans, route planners, maps, visual and acoustic information (e.g. audio data) and complex tabular data cannot at present be provided in accessible form.
