Accessibility Statement for nextnano Software

The company nextnano GmbH is producing scientific software for a very specific audience. Due to its small company size, targeting a full accessibility especially retroactively is impossible. However, we aim to consider accessibility in any new software developments.

Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. The nextnano software is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 Level A. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard. On some functionality conformance up to Level AA is achieved.


We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of the nextnano software. Please let us know if you encounter accessibility barriers:
