Unreasonably onerous adaptation

Timetables

We invoke unreasonably onerous adaptation under Section 12 of the Digital Public Service Accessibility Act for timetables in pdf. The files are designed as a basis for printed tables and the system that generates them is not built to take into account the requirements of accessibility customizations. We invoke unreasonably onerous adaptation as adaptation would be a very costly investment and involve work for which we do not have the capacity at present.
