What to do in case of problems and malfunctions?

If I have a problem or complaint, will you assist me in resolving my issue?

Of course we are happy to help you, that’s what we are here for.

Whether you are testing our tool free of charge or have been our customer for years, we will be happy to help you with the installation process and any questions that arise, with feedback from your users and, of course, with fault reports.

If you receive a complaint about the accessibility of your website, please gather as much information as possible. It is important for us to know on which page there was a problem, which browser or device was used and in which context the error occurred. Furthermore, it is important for us to know which settings were made in DIGIaccess in order to be able to reproduce the error.

Forward us as much information as possible, we will check everything and try to solve the problem as soon as possible.

In addition, we work on DIGIaccess every day and expand it with additional functions.

I have DIGIaccess installed, but I don't see it on my website. What could be the problem?

If you have installed DIGIaccess and the tool is not displayed on your website, we will be happy to explain below how you can solve the problem. Of course, you are always welcome to contact us directly for help.

The test period has expired

If you have not yet paid for your website, DIGIaccess will stop working after the trial period (7 days). To make it work again, you just need to purchase a licence via our website.

The code is not embedded correctly
You can easily check if DIGIaccess is properly integrated into your website. Open your website and press Ctrl + U, then you will see the source code of your website. To make sure that DIGIaccess is embedded correctly, press Ctrl + F and look for the word DIGIaccess. If you find the word, the code is probably embedded correctly and the problem lies elsewhere. If the word does not appear, our code has probably not been embedded – you will find out what to do in one of the next sections. Before doing so, please clear your cache again.

Your cache must be cleared
You may need to clear the cache on your website to see updates and changes. If you are using Chrome, click on the 3-dot icon at the top next to the address bar. Click on “Settings” and type the word “Cache” in the search box. When you click on the appropriate option, a pop-up window will open asking you to confirm that you want to clear the cache.

How you clear the cache differs from system to system, so for a browser other than Chrome you can google “How do I clear the cache on {your system}”. After clearing the cache, DIGIaccess will appear on your page if this was the problem.

If you have followed the steps described and the problem persists, please contact us and we will quickly solve the problem together.

DIGIaccess is loaded very slowly

DIGIaccess is programmed to load secondary to building your website. This means that only when your entire web page is fully loaded, DIGIaccess loads and is displayed by the browser. This happens mainly for two reasons:

  1. We work on-the-fly and in order to make the entire website accessible, and not just parts of it, it must be fully loaded first.
  2. the loading times and performance of your website should not be affected.

This means that the load time of DIGIaccess depends on the load time of your website. For our system, the loading time is 0.25 seconds. So if your web page takes 2 seconds to load, DIGIaccess will be loaded after 2.25 seconds and if it takes 10 seconds to load, DIGIaccess will be loaded after 10.25 seconds.

The DIGIaccess interface is displayed on my web page, but it does not look as expected

This very rare problem is probably caused by a collision between the CSS settings of your website and DIGIaccess. The solution is quite simple and quickly implemented, but for this you need to contact us briefly.

DIGIaccess is displayed on my website, but the controls are not clickable or nothing happens

If DIGIaccess is displayed on the page, but the controls within it are not clickable, there is probably a conflict between your page’s scripts and DIGIaccess’s scripts.

This case is very rare, but possible. To find out if it is a script conflict, go to the page using the Chrome browser and press the F12 key; you will see a panel. In the panel, click the Console tab and refresh the page. After updating, look for the red underlined word DIGIaccess in the same Console tab. If you find it, it is a script conflict. In this case, contact us directly to find a solution.
If you can’t solve problems yourself we are always just a phone call away to help!

Does DIGIaccess change the source code of my website or does it affect performance and load times?

DIGIaccess does not interfere in any way with the source code of a web page, but supplements the non-accessible code of the web page at the level of the rendering browser. This means that DIGIaccess modifies your site’s code according to the user’s requirements afterwards.

If the visitor to your website does not choose to support DIGIaccess, DIGIaccess does not change the code. In no case does the system change, delete, save or update anything in your source code but only in the code displayed in the browser (client-side). These changes take place only in the object structure of the document (DOM) and using CSS and JS. An interface to the system or server level is not required. Once the DIGIaccess code is deleted from the site, your system will be just like before.

DIGIaccess also has no impact on the performance of a website. The system loads downstream after the entire page has been loaded by the browser and fully rendered.

What do we need to keep in mind in the future when creating new posts, photos, etc.?

You can continue to use the CMS of your website as usual. DIGIaccess analyzes your site in regular cycles. Newly created articles, posts and menu items are automatically recognized and prepared by the software so that the user can view everything barrier-free through our tool. Newly uploaded images are analyzed in a 48 hour cycle and get a suitable alternative text if you have not created your own.

What do I have to consider in terms of data protection law when I use DIGIaccess on my website?

All individual customizations are stored in the user’s local storage. No further data of the user is collected or passed on by our tool.

Our software itself is hosted on an OTC server by Telekom, so this data never leaves the EU and you can use DIGIaccess in a DSGVO-compliant way. (as of May 2021)

How many people are there in Germany who are helped by DIGIaccess?

For 100% of your visitors DIGIaccess is helpful
An accessible website is characterized by high usability. The easy and intuitive usability and the individual setting options of DIGIaccess help all visitors. With the ability to adjust the contrasts and change the text size, your texts are always easy to read – for example, even on a smartphone in sunlight.

DIGIaccess is necessary for 30% of your visitors
Accessibility helps people with impaired vision by providing individual adjustment options. With the possibilities of keyboard navigation, people with motor disabilities can also use your website with the help of our tool.

For 10 % it is essential
There are 7.9 million people in Germany with a recognized severe disability. This large social group uses the Internet more intensively than average, which makes them a very relevant user group of the content provided on the Web. For example, they use keyboard-only controls, Braille, voice output, or joysticks for their access. A website with DIGIaccess enables these alternative navigation modes.
