The non-profit association DNS Belgium wishes to promote the use of the internet by making it more accessible for people with a disability in particular. We are constantly improving our user experience and are applying the relevant accessibility standards accordingly.
Measures to improve accessibility
We have implemented the following measures to enhance the accessibility of our website:
- the promotion of the use of the internet in a sustainable manner is included in our organisation’s mission statement;
- accessibility is an essential component of our sustainability strategy. This sustainability strategy is a fixed component of our procurement policy;
- accessibility is included in our communication strategy;
- our colleagues have undergone training in accessibility standards and communication strategies.
Level of compliance with the accessibility standard
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) contains standards in terms of accessibility requirements for persons with a disability. There are three levels at which these rules can be implemented: Level A, Level AA and Level AAA.
We are partially compliant with WCGA 2.1 Level A – partially, because some parts of our website are not fully compliant with these rules. They concern archived information in PDF format such as annual reports from the previous years and the sustainability report. Also pdf files that we receive from external parties (e.g. audit reports) are not always in accordance with the rules.
Limits and alternatives
We are doing our utmost to make the entire website and all documents accessible to everyone. Nevertheless, we have not succeeded completely. A summary of persistent problems and possible solutions is provided below. If you still find something that is not accessible and is not indicated below, please let us know.
The following documents/pages are still not fully accessible:
- the sustainability report 2016-2017: a number of graphs and drawings
- the annual reports of previous years: a number of graphs and drawings
- registration certificate
If you would like more information about these documents, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
