Web Accessibility

Web accessibility refers to the practice of removing barriers to allow older persons, people with disabilities, and all other users to more easily access and use the information and functions provided by websites. Our official website incorporates this principle to give our various stakeholders visiting the site stress-free access to the information and allow them to use our website comfortably.

Specifically, we set out to conform with “JIS X 8341-3:2016 Guidelines for older persons and persons with disabilities – Information and communications equipment, software and services – Part 3: Web content” to assure and improve accessibility.

  1. “JIS X 8341-3:2016 Guidelines for older persons and persons with disabilities – Information and communications equipment, software and services – Part 3: Web content” are the third section of the Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) set of guidelines JIS X 8341, which aim to make Web content accessible to older persons and persons with temporary or permanent disabilities, and show how to develop easy-to-use Web content. Three areas are stipulated under these guidelines as a basic policy:
  1. To make sites as easy as possible to operate and use by older individuals and those with disabilities;
  2. To promote operability and ease of use in telecommunications equipment and display devices as far as possible in terms of screen resolution and size, Web browsers and software versions; and
  3. To constantly maintain information accessibility in all processes from the planning to implementation of Web content.
