Internet Site Accessibility

An accessible internet site is one which allows persons with disabilities and elderly persons to surf at the same level of efficiency and benefit as all other surfers.

At Somekh Chaikin we work towards equal opportunity in the internet environment for people with varied disabilities and those assisted by various technologies for computer use.

Information on Site Accessibility

The Somekh Chaikin site complies with the equal rights regulations for persons with disabilities (adaptation of accessibility for service – 2013.

For exiting menus and Windows, Enter and Esc, the site provides a semantic structure for assistive technologies and support for printing using the keyboard arrows.

In order to receive better surfing with the screed reader program we recommend using the most updated WCAG 2.0 program.

Through the use of this site we have made it clear that we will provide equal service without compromise for every person, including clients with disabilities.

Significant efforts and resources have been invested in making the internet site accessible and in developing tools for making other internet sites accessible with the purpose of allowing the majority of the population to easily and comfortably use these sites and make them more available for those with disabilities.  The firm joins the general effort to make sites accessible for people with special needs.
