The transparency principle
Moderna Museet is a government agency. In consequence, any messages sent to us are public documents.
Moderna Museet’s ambition is that its digital presence shall comply as far as possible to established web standards and “vägledning för webbutveckling (fd 24-timmarsvägledningen)“(guidelines for web development, previously the 24-hour guideline). We strive to follow the guidelines for Swedish government organisations and the requirements on accessibility and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The tool for administering and publishing information is based on the web publication system WordPress. Our website was developed in accordance with recommended standards, rather than for a specific browser.
Our website offers a free screen reader (ReadSpeaker) for users.
Choose between two alternatives for screen reading:
- Click on the Listen link under the heading on each page. The screen reading service will load and show buttons that you can click on to listen to the main contents of the page.
- Mark the section you wish to hear. When the text is marked, a Play symbol will appear that you can click on to listen to the marked text.
You can adjust the speed of the screen reading, and enlarge the marked text to make it easier to follow it while you are listening.
