We, at ZIM, are striving and taking steps to promote accessibility. We value our customers with disabilities equally to any other customer, and believe they are entitled to equal access to our facilities and services.
ZIM adheres to the provisions of the Israeli Accessibility Law, and even more so, in order to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities and assist them in their integration in our society in an equal, independent and dignified manner.
Our accessibility adjustments are performed according to the provisions of the Israeli Equal Rights for People with Disabilities Law, 1998 and its subsequent regulations, including the Equal Rights to People with Disabilities (Accessibility Adjustments in Services) Regulations, 2013.
How is our Website Accessible?
We have adjusted our Website so is accessible according to the AA level set out in Israeli Standard No. 5568, which corresponds with the equivalent AA level of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version.
Our website includes the following accessibility methods:
Its structure is designed for accessibility technologies, including support for the customary accessibility navigation with the arrow keys and the Esc and Enter Buttons to enter or exit menus and windows.
Has been tested and is customized for the highest levels of accessibility on Mozilla Firefox. It is also responsive and usable on Microsoft Explorer and Google Chrome.
We received professional counsel on the accessibility applications on our website from the A-2-Z an Israeli Online Marketing agency specializing in website accessibility.
In order to experience the optimal browsing we recommend using the most updated version of the NDVA "screen-reader" software.
