WEBSITE ACCESSIBILITY STATEMENT
We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the broadest possible audience, regardless of ability.
To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.
This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.
Screen-reader and keyboard navigation
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various behavioural changes, to ensure users visiting with screen-readers can read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements:
We run a process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups), and others.
Additionally, we use ALT (alternate text) on our images, in order for the screen reader to properly describe the image to the user.
Keyboard navigation optimization:
Reading the site’s text aloud, in supported browsers.
Zooms the screen display.
Convert the site’s font to “sans serif” and other readable fonts.
Highlights the site links.
Highlights the site headers.
Display the site’s contents in a new window clearly and readable.
Enables users to type contents using the mouse.
Convert to black and white colours.
Changes the site’s background to black, with bright fonts.
Changes the site’s background to white, with dark fonts.
Enlarge the cursor and change its colour to either white or black.
Increase and decrease the font size, line spacing or word spacing.
Change the site’s colours.
Our site’s accessibility widget is available in multiple languages.
Accessibility technology and browser compatibility:
We aim to support as many browsers and assistive technologies as possible so our users can choose the best fitting tools for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all major systems that comprise over 95% of the user market share, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge on both Windows and Apple devices.
Notes, comments and feedback:
Despite our very best efforts to allow anybody to adjust the website to their needs, there may still be pages or sections that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or are lacking an adequate technological solution to make them accessible. We will work to continually improve our accessibility, adding, updating, improving its options and features, and developing and adopting new technologies. Our efforts are meant to reach the optimal level of accessibility following technological advancements.
