Outset situation

For blind and sight-impaired people, the internet is one of the most important discoveries of the last century. Reading a newspaper, consulting a catalogue or researching a reference are activities which were previously practically impossible without external help or only with very great difficulty. With the internet and the spread of a technology which translates the written into the spoken word, access is now available, or better said, could be available. The software used - so-called screen reader software - can only transmit text which has been legibly programmed for it. These conditions are satisfied in those areas of the Canton Grisons website which have been consistently programmed using the new system. Some parts of the website are still structured using the conventional, older technology. However, little by little, these will be completely transferred into the new content management system according to the accessibility regulations.

If, contrary to expectations, any content should prove inaccessible, please contact our web-support team:
