Who is Digin.nu for?

Digin.nu is a website for you who want, or need, to know more about how accessibility can become part of your organization.

The content is developed for both the public and private sector and is suitable regardless of whether you have little or a lot of knowledge and insight in the area. The idea is that the information on Digin.nu should suit people with different responsibilities and professional roles, for example you who work with business development and management or are a purchaser, IT manager, system administrator, developer, web editor, communicator or UX designer.

Why is a website about digital inclusion and accessibility needed?

Laws and requirements for accessibility are increasing, partly to balance the fact that society’s rapid digitalization risks excluding certain groups. Digitalization and technological development can and should provide greater opportunities to include everyone in society, not create sharper boundaries that increase exclusion.

In order to meet increased demands for accessibility, contribute to a democratic society and at the same time maintain efficient operations, we need to find good, efficient working methods and tools.

Practice and clear guidance are still lacking in some areas. We therefore need to learn from each other and find the way forward together. By spreading knowledge, information and experiences and focusing on opportunities and solutions, we can facilitate everyone’s work with digital inclusion.
