Swiss Post undertakes to provide a website which is accessible to as much of the general public as possible, regardless of technology or skills. We are actively and continually working to advance the accessibility and user-friendliness of our website.
Standards and guidelines
Swiss Post is guided by the standards of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), Level AA.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines are a recommendation for designing accessible Internet content. They were developed by the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative. The Level AA guidelines set out the following requirements in particular:
Perceivability through text alternatives for images, subtitles for audio, ability to display content in different ways and change colour contrasts.
Operability through keyboard operation, colour contrasts, time limits for data entry, prevention of seizures and navigability.
Understandability through readability, predictability and assistance with entering data.
Robustness through compatibility with assistive technologies.
Although Swiss Post endeavours to comply with these recognized guidelines and standards for accessibility and user-friendliness, it is not always able to guarantee this in all areas of the website.
The following sites are currently not compliant with WCAG Level AA or are only partially compliant:
- SwissPost website
