Fnac levels up its website with EqualWeb

01/08/2023 15:47:25
From now on, users can access accessibility functions like Voice Navigation, Color Adjustments, and Image Descriptors, among others. The Fnac website is now more accessible for users with different types of disabilities, including seniors.
Madrid, June 20, 2023. Fnac, the leading brand in culture and technology, shows its commitment to accessibility with its partnership with EqualWeb, a software technological company that helps facilitate the online browsing experience for people with disabilities.

To access the new features from cell phones and computers, EqualWeb’s Auto AI Accessibility Widget allows users to click on the button representing the International Symbol of Accessibility. The icon can be found in the header in the mobile version or in the top right corner of the web page in the desktop version.

Once the EqualWeb widget is activated by pressing the button, the user can reach a menu with different functions to customize the website and make it more accessible. The widget allows activating several accessibility profiles, such as “Blindness,” “Motor Skills Disorders,” “Color blindness,” “Visual impairment,” “Epilepsy,” “Learning,” and even an option for the elderly that shows the content in a more readable way.

These profiles automatically select a number of accessibility functions that remediate the content and various web elements on For example, the Voice Navigation function enables the text on the website to be read aloud. Another feature is the Keyboard or Smart Navigation function, enabling users to navigate the web pages from the keyboard without using the mouse, thus optimizing their user experience.

Fnac has also included a Custom Color function that allows users to change colors and adjust the background tone, headers, and web content. Similarly, the Monochrome mode which converts the website’s colors to black and white can be automatically activated. In addition, you can choose between light mode (white background with dark fonts) or dark mode (black background with bright fonts).

EqualWeb not only allows you to adjust the site’s colors but also the web font so that you can increase or decrease the font size. Among the rest of the tools, an image descriptor and a flicker blocker that allows you to stop the flashing of moving elements are available.

Closed captions for videos and audio content enable people with hearing impairments to understand the content. EqualWeb has become the first web accessibility vendor to provide a video and audio closed captions option for people with disabilities as part of its automatic services.

The unique benefit of the function is that it’s entirely automatic. Moreover, as the website owner, you can modify the automatic generic text if you find a mismatch between the video and the text (the AI may miss a few words here and there), using the Captions Editor in your dashboard.

The closed captions function includes a simple on-and-off activation button, a rating vote for feedback purposes, a new transcription window over the video or audio element, and a captions download option. The captions’ font conforms to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 standards for easily accessible fonts.
