OsloMet is an official member of the International Association of Accessibility Professionals (iaapnordic.org).
The communication department at OsloMet takes universal design of ICT seriously. We have dedicated employees and tools to monitor our website's accessibility status daily. We correct WCAG-errors through weekly work sessions, and set up long-term plans to solve remaining issues.
Our website is programmed to work with screen readers, in both Norwegian and English, depending on where you are located on oslomet.no. You can also increase text size in your browser.
