EDF RELEASED A TOOLKIT FOR THE PROMOTION OF THE STANDARD ON ACCESSIBLE TECHNOLOGIES
Since 2005, EDF has been involved in the development of the European Commission Mandate 376 to develop the first European Standard on accessibility requirements for ICT products and services. In February 2014, this standard was adopted and published, and recently the European Standardisation Organisations launched an online toolkit to support its implementation.
Despite some problems, this is a complex but useful standard that contains the technical specifications to ensure equal access for persons with disabilities to different technologies such as websites, emails, documents, books, videos, communication devices, ATM’s, self-service machines, digital devices. Therefore, EDF has prepared a manual explaining why this standard is important, for whom, what it includes, and how you can promote its use.
