English-language instructions and links for using the sandbox environments are available in the System Developers section on the Kanta.fi website.
The accessibility of the web service has been assessed by Kela.
How accessible is the web service?
The user interface meant for the processing of resources in sandbox environments fulfils the accessibility requirements to a large extent. (WCAG criteria 2.1 Levels A and AA)
User interfaces meant for the use of authorising sandbox environment do not fulfil the accessibility requirements (WCAG criteria 2.1 Levels A and AA).
In sandbox environments in a user interface meant for the processing of resources, users may still encounter some availability problems. The problems that we are aware of are listed in the following. If you notice a problem in the user interface that is not listed, please let us know.
The contents or functions that are not yet fully accessible:
- On the search page for resources, the buttons for moving around are not shown in the calendar used by the “lastUpdated” and “date” query parameters. (WCAG 3.2.4)
- Resource-specific pages have the search for profile or resource history. There is a calendar for limiting the search, and its buttons for moving around are not shown. (WCAG 3.2.4)
We aim to rectify the above-listed faults by 31 December 2022.
Content that is non-accessible due to unreasonable burden
User interfaces meant for the use of authorising sandbox environment do not currently fulfil the critical accessibility requirements. The current user interfaces are no longer developed, and the user interfaces are due to be renewed during 2022. The user interfaces will be made accessible in connection with the renewal. The renewed, accessible user interfaces are intended to be published by 31 December 2022.
Accessibility requirements do not apply to certain contents
In the user interface meant for the processing of resources, there are links to external websites, the accessibility of which has not been assessed by Kela. These contents are not covered by the accessibility legislation.
Material produced by other organisations
We are not responsible for the functioning of contents produced by other organisations on our website. These kinds of contents include, e.g. data recorded by application suppliers in sandbox environments.
