An accessible website is a website that allows people with disabilities and elderly people to use it efficiently and enjoy it like 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 content.
WideOps believes in and works towards equal opportunities on the web for people with various disabilities and using assistive technologies to operate a computer.
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 recommendations of the Israeli standard (SI 5568) 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 cellular 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, in order to achieve the optimal user experience with screen reading software, we recommend using the latest NVDA software.
