Measures to Support Accessibility

  • We conduct periodic manual audits of key areas of our sites and address the issues identified/raised.
  • We actively prioritize accessibility issues for remediation based on issue severity and impact to the user.
  • We conduct educational workshops and training sessions to keep accessibility awareness and best practices top-of-mind when building and updating products and content for our sites.
