Non-accessible content on

Non-accessible or partially non-accessible content Accessibility alternatives Reason
Complex plans and maps None Currently, it is not technically possible to offer fully accessible maps on a website.
PDF files from third parties None It is not the responsibility of SBB to make third-party content accessible.
Captcha Log in with the SwissPass login. Or carry out process by post. In the evaluation of captchas, the Google captcha used at SBB was the one that best met the accessibility requirements. SBB monitors the products on the market. As soon as an accessible captcha becomes available, SBB will evaluate the captcha again.
Tickets in PDF format Display on SBB Mobile or on as a screen ticket or print out the PDF. Disproportionately high level of effort required.
