5568 ADA Compliance, Israel
The law of equal rights for persons with disabilities law - 5568

Basic principle - The Israeli standard is the adoption of international guidelines - Accessibility Guidelines for Web Content Web Accessibility Guidelines of the International W3C Organization (a Hebrew translation of the Accessibility Guidelines is available to you here. The guidance document includes links to explanations and examples of how to make accessibility.

Accessibility adjustments allow people with various disabilities such as the blind and visually impaired, people with physical disabilities who have difficulty operating their hands, people with cognitive disabilities such as dyslexia and ADHD, people with hearing impairments and people with other disabilities, to make effective use of the services and information offered on the site.

Here are some examples of guidelines for adapting sites for people with disabilities:
  • A blind user uses software that can read information from a computer. When browsing the site he will be able to read all the texts in a logical order (criterion 1.3.2), get a description of the information in the pictures (criterion 1.1.1), identify titles and links (criterion 1.3.1) and be able to run everything on the site such as Links, Forms, Buttons (Criteria 2.1.1, 2.1.2). These adjustments usually require writing standard code for the site and providing alternative information for images and multimedia.
  • A surfer who, due to his disability, is unable to operate a similar mouse or device, will be able to navigate the site and perform actions using commands provided via the keyboard (Criteria 2.1.1, 2.1.2, 2.4.3, 2.4.7).
  • The text on the site is in a color that stands out relative to the background, so that people with impaired vision are allowed to read the text (criterion 1.4.6).
People with hearing impairments can get the verbal information provided in videos on the site, by adding subtitles to the videos.
