While Finland has little in the way of direct eAccessibility legislation, thereÂ appears to beÂ a basis in the anti-discrimination section of the constitution and in antidiscrimination legislation on employment for developing eAccessibility measures. Finlandâs national action programme âTowards Barrier Free Communicationâ encompasses initiatives in a range of sectors including broadcasting, telecommunications and websites. In terms of actual levels of accessibility achieved to date, Finland isÂ at aboutÂ the European average.
