Accessibility Statement

March 1, 2023

ANU-Museum of the Jewish People recognizes the importance of making the digital space accessible to persons with disabilities, and views it as an integral part of its service and social responsibility philosophy. Considerable attention was devoted to making the website accessible in accordance with Israel Standard 5568 – at Level AA, which is the required level by law. After accessibility is achieved, the access provided to persons with different disabilities, as well as the compatibility with the NVDA and JAWS screen readers, are tested by Migdal Or, a multiservice center for the blind and visually impaired.

Despite the efforts to facilitate accessible use of the website, there is a possibility that certain components will be identified as being insufficiently accessible, such as pages whose level of accessibility has been diminished due to the update of browser versions and screen readers, or the upload of new content.

Because it is important to us to maintain the accessibility of the website, if you encounter any kind of problem, please let us know in one of the following ways: email, phone: 972-3-500-8080

The accessibility of the website is reflected in the following features:
- High contrast colors were chosen; the information is organized in a hierarchical and simple fashion.
Website navigation and activation - The website can be navigated in full by keyboard only, and not just by using a mouse; the website is compatible with various screen readers and browsers; videos and animations that are streamed automatically can be paused.
Content - We have added alternative text to the images, keys and links, making it possible to receive a meaningful description of all the visual content on the website, read aloud.

On Sunday, April 2 the museum will be closed.
