Declaration on accessibility
Siemens-Betriebskrankenkasse (SBK) strives to make its websites and mobile applications accessible to all in accordance with national legislation implementing Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and Council.
This declaration on accessibility applies to SBK websites, and in particular to:
Status of consistency with the requirements
These websites comply with the German Federal Ordinance on Barrier-Free Information Technology (Barrierefreie Informationstechnik-Verordnung (BITV) 2.0.) with the following inconsistencies and exceptions.
We are currently working on making the following content accessible:
- On a few pages of the Meine SBK app, content is not conveyed by screen readers in a logical order.
- Linear reading is not always possible with some Meine SBK forms. This is a bug in the JAWS screen reader software that was fixed by Freedom Scientific, but is still present in all older versions of JAWS (including JAWS 2020).
- The language markings for English pages are currently still displayed in German.
- In many cases, navigating through tabs using the arrow keys is not possible.
- In rare cases, the keyboard focus is not visible.
- Icons that are only used for visual design are sometimes output as empty links.
- Automatically displayed pop-ups are not currently the focal point. Keyboard navigation takes place on the page in the background. You will find the new content at the top of the page.
- PDF documents and forms are not yet accessible for all. Alternatively, you can use the online forms in Meine SBK or access information at www.sbk.org/sbk-en.
- Offer of the following content in sign language:
- Information on the main content
- Notes on navigation
Should you require further assistance, your personal consultant is available during regular business hours.
