6. Disproportionate burden

Kiwi was launched in 2011. In June, 2020, it contained over 30,000 pages and thousands of attachments. Not all content creators are National Library staff. It is beyond the National Library to check and correct all pages and attachments. The National Library shall promptly address shortcomings as they are noticed.

Some problems are caused by the software that Kiwi is running on, called Atlassian. It is a product of Atlassian Corporation Plc, of Australia. The National Library cannot address these problems on her own initiative. According to information obtained in June, 2020, Atlassian Corporation was in the process of making sure that its products will fulfil the AA requirements of the WCAG 2.0.

7. Out of Scope

Kiwi.fi has contents in office file formats that were published before September 23rd, 2018.

8. Reporting Shortcomings

The National Library will take every reasonable measure to correct any shortcomings reported. Please let us know about your discoveries. We shall provide You with non-accessible contents in accessible format.
