A Statement on Accessibility
The Israeli Schubertiade places great importance on making its website accessible to the general public, and has invested great efforts in achieving this goal. We try to ensure that our site meets the standard accepted in Israel and that it is accessible to people with disabilities.
The site was examined according to the accessibility guidelines in the Israeli Standard 5568 - guidelines for accessibility of content on the Internet at AA level. This Israeli provision is identical to the guidelines of the International Organization for Standardization on the Web: Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.
The site comply with the provisions of the Equal Rights for Persons with Disabilities Regulations (Accessibility Adjustments for Services), 2013, with the following caveats:
Accessibility adjustments were carried out according to the recommendations of the Israeli standard (5568) for access to content on the Internet at the AA level, and according to the international guidelines (WCAG2.0)
The tests were conducted for highest compatibility with multiple browsers
The site provides a semantic structure for assistive technologies and support for the standard keyboard usage pattern with the arrow keys, the Enter and Esc buttons to exit menus and windows
The site is optimized for display in popular browsers as mentioned above
The accessibility tests were carried out using a screen reader - NVDA
It is important to note that despite our many efforts to make all pages accessible, parts of the site may still not be accessible.
If you have difficulty accessing the site and you’d like to let us know about the lack of accessibility adjustments, request such adjustments or if you wish to draw our attention to any issue on the topic, you can contact us via the attached form. The Israeli Schubertiade will invest all efforts in making the site accessible and respond to every request competently and quickly.
