Accessibility Declaration

Last updated: December 7, 2022.

The Shavim NGO is responsible for the operation of the ‘amutatshavim’ website. We regard the provision of an egalitarian service to all citizens and the improvement of the service provided to citizens with disabilities as very important. We invest considerable resources in making our website accessible so that the NGO’s services will be more available to persons with disabilities.

Making the site of the Shavim NGO accessible was intended to make it more available, user-friendly and convenient for the use of persons with special needs that derive, inter alia, from various motor disabilities, cognitive impairments, nearsightedness, blindness, colorblindness or deafness, and for the use of senior citizens.


Level of accessibility

The Shavim NGO adapts the site and its products to the most common web browsers and for use on cellular phones and uses in its tests screen readers of the following types:

For Desktop: Windows + NVDA + Chrome/Firefox                                 

For Mobile: iOS + VoiceOver + Safari

The NGO ensures that its digital assets comply with the requirements of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Accessibility Modifications for a Service) Regulations, 5773-2013 (hereinafter: ‘the Regulations’), with an AA standard, and it also implements the recommendations of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 of the W3C organization.
