Web Accessibility



This statement applies to the Malta Broadcasting Authority’s official website and was last updated on 21st December 2022.


Compliance Status

The Malta Broadcasting Authority is focused on making its online services available to everyone in the best possibly way. The Authority is devoted to constantly improving accessibility of our services by adopting best practices as communicated by our stakeholders.


Compliance Process

The Authority’s website is designed to work with most recent internet browsers such as Google Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge.


As part of this action, we adhere to the accessibility standard EN310549 and WCAG2.1 guidelines. Our online resources and forms are evaluated, both manually and automatically, to conform to the WCAG 2.1 Level AA guidelines. The website is designed to function well and be accessible when being accessed with appropriately updated hardware and software technologies.


Further recognizing that adherence to standards and guidelines, cannot on its own guarantee that a product is accessible, the Authority additionally carries out usability evaluations in a joint effort with users, to gather the necessary feedback. The Authority also stives to implement accessibility for information channels that are provided via other platforms where possible, such as social media.



Accessibility Measures

The Authority’s website does depend on font, amplification and colour modification widgets, the reason being that such functionalities are already incorporated in most recent internet browsers or are available by means of different add-ons and plugins which various users are allowed to modify to their requirements. In fact, such customisations are available for most websites, not the Broadcasting Authority’s. To allow for this level of customisation, the Authority seeks to maximise compatibility with these user modifications.


As part of and in addition to the above-mentioned guidelines, the Authority’s website implements the following accessibility features:

  • Information content is organized into HTML lists where applicable;
  • Mouse Point changes to a different icon when a link is hovered;
  • Add image title, alt tag and caption wherever this information is relevant and useful;
  • Maximise colour contrast for text where applicable;
  • Configure all external links so as to open in different tables when clicked.
