Accessibility statement updated on 10/1/2023
The “Nekudat Zion” non-profit organization (580728046) established a digital social network for the preservation of the IDF’s heritage throughout the generations by collecting stories and testimonies of significant moments experienced by the men and women who served. We are committed to making our activities, including our website, accessible to people with disabilities in order to promote equal rights and transparency towards anyone and everyone who is interested in contributing to or experiencing the platform.
An accessible website is a website that allows a person with a disability to browse with the same level of efficiency and enjoyment as anyone else, using the capabilities of the operating system on which he is accessing the website and using assistive technologies to increase accessibility .
The accessibility adjustments on the site were made in accordance with Article C: Internet services in the Equal Rights for People with Disabilities Regulations (Service Accessibility Adjustments) 5773-2013, to Israeli Standard SI 5568 based on the WCAG 2.0 guidelines, the site was made accessible to Level A and subject to changes and adjustments made to the Israeli standard document.
In order to ensure full compliance with the guidelines of the standard and in accordance with the association’s ambition to make the site as accessible as possible, the site uses Accessibe technology that supports all the necessary adjustments. The site supports the use of assistive technologies such as screen reading software, keyboard browsing by using the Tab and Shift+Tab keys to move between links, the arrow keys, the Enter key to select, the Esc key to exit menus and windows, pressingHor a number to move between headings.
As a site whose main content is videos uploaded by users, our ambition is to add captions to all content. As of the writing of this document, we do not yet have an automatic system for transcribing and adding captions. We make efforts to transcribe segments manually and add accessible content in this form on a regular basis. We are in contact with various companies that deal with automatic transcription and plan to make all video content uploaded by users accessible in the future.
The site is tested periodically and at least every three months to ensure the maintenance of the site’s accessibility.
No exemptions were submitted to the site.
In the pages of the site there is an option (which will be expanded in the future) to link to video content external to the site. The accessibility of the linked page depends on content that is not the organization’s (third-party content) and therefore we declare partial compliance with the standard for these pages.
On this website, you can browse optimally and accessibly using the common browsers. It is recommended to use the following browsers: Chrome, Edge, Safari and in screen reader software NVDA/Jaws/Voiceover.
The site is in the “silent launch” stage and, as mentioned, is not yet fully accessible in making the videos uploaded by users accessible in the form of transcription and automatic captioning. We are making efforts and arrays that the accessibility of the video content as a foresaid, will be completed by January 1, 2024. Until this date, you can contact the association (see communication methods below or on the website itself), for human support in making the desired content accessible.
The organization has no offices or assets that require accessibility.
The organization’s events are accessible as necessary.
