The Swedish Social Insurance Agency sued for discrimination
When I was on sick leave a couple of years ago I had to deal a bit with The Swedish Social Insurance Agency. At the time I could only use my left hand because my right arm was in a cast. I became quite good with using my phone with one hand so when I had to fill in some forms I was hoping that there would be an app or that the agency's website at least would work on mobile. It did not. I had trouble finding the form that I was supposed to fill in and when I finally found it I had to use developer tools in my browser to make the text inputs big enough to hold more than a couple of characters. So lets say I'm not surprised that they are now being sued for discrimination. The article about the case is in swedish and if that is not a language you know, the Google translated version is ok. My hopes for this is that it will raise awareness and that others, especially within the public sector, take notice and understand that it's not enough to include accessibility as a demand in the requirements.
Thanks Palle for the tips regarding this!
