An accessible website is a website that allows people with disabilities and older adults to use it efficiently and enjoy it as much as anyone else.
According to a study conducted by Microsoft in 2003, between 20 and 25 percent of the population encounter difficulties in using the Internet and may benefit from more accessible web contents.
Jerusalem2022.org.il believes in and works towards equal opportunities on the web for people with various disabilities and/or using assistive technologies to operate a computer.
Accessible Website Symbol
An “Accessible Website” symbol is the initiative of the non-profit organization Access Israel and the Israel Internet Association. The symbol is placed on websites adapted to the requirements to make them accessible to people with disabilities.
The purpose of placing the symbol is to promote public awareness of web accessibility and inform the website users of its accessibility.
This website meets the requirements of the Equal Rights for Persons with Disabilities Regulations (Adaption of Accessibility to Services), 2013.
The website conforms to the Israeli Standard (SI 5568) recommendations for web content accessibility at Level AA and the recommendations of the W3Cs WCAG 2.0 document.
It has also been adapted for display on the most popular Web browsers and for use on mobile phones.
Strict accessibility adaptations were made on this website, including semantic and informative implementation for assistive technologies, navigation and operation definition using a keyboard only according to the recommendations of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), color adjustment and addition of assistive symbols and instructions in forms for the benefit of all users. In addition to achieve the optimal user experience with screen reading software, we recommend using the latest NVDA software.
Some of what was done on the website
We added an assistive WordPress compatible accessibility component (link to the component website https://purple-lens.com/ ) which enables control over font size, bypassing blocks, instructional texts for NVDA and Jaws screen readers, mouseless keyboard navigation, adjustments to adapt the website for users with a NVDA and Jaws screen reader, black and white/color contrasts, blocking animation and any moving elements on the website, and emphasizing links.
To achieve the optimal user experience with a screen reader, we recommend using the latest NVDA software.
It should be noted that despite our efforts to make our web pages accessible to everybody, attached documents (such as Word, PDF, Excel), the internal management system and video files are still in the progress of becoming accessible, which we are attempting to complete.
