UNI Financial cooperation wants to make its Web site as easy to consult as possible for individuals with various disabilities and strives to carry out improvements gradually.

A number of Priority 1 and 2 checkpoints recommended by the Web Accessibility Initiative have therefore been implemented:

  • Navigation and presentation mechanisms are used in a consistent manner throughout the site.
  • Header elements (H1 and H2 tags, etc.) make the document structure easy to understand.
  • The main blocks of information are divided in order to make consultation easier.
  • Clear and simple language is used.
  • The destination of each hyperlink is clearly indicated.
  • Relative size fonts allow for easier text enlargement.
  • A CSS style sheet guarantees uniform presentation on the site, but the pages can still be read if the style sheet is deactivated.
  • Most non-text elements (images, symbols, etc.) have a text equivalent (ALT tag). A text-based navigation bar at the bottom of the page complements the image-based navigation bar.
  • Contrasting colours are used for the background and text.
  • All information conveyed by colour is also available without colour.
  • The screen does not blink or move and pages are not redisplayed unless activated by the user.
  • A site map is provided.

Most of the content of the site is therefore accessible to users who use Lynx and JAWS, browsers commonly used by individuals with visual disabilities.
