Accessibility and Adjusting the Children's Museum in Holon

The Children's Museum in Holon, in collaboration with the Access Israel Association, has committed to adjusting the Museum's website and content to make them accessible to all populations, including people with disabilities. The Museum believes in the equal rights and equal opportunities in order to generate the same benefit from the website's contents and therefore, is acting to promote the accessibility of the Israeli websites and adjust them for use of all population in Israel, as legislated in the accessibility laws and regulations. In addition to adjusting the website, the Museum's staff is also undergoing training towards offering accessible customer services.


Adjusting the website

Adjusting the website, according to the schedule defined in the regulations, is performed by Clarify – a website adjusting tool, according to Israeli Standard for Accessibility 5568 and the directives of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) for the AA level, with the assistance of accessibility experts from Clarify.


How is the accessibility activated on the website?
