An accessible website is one that allows people with disabilities and adults to browse it with maximum efficiency and enjoyment possible for all visitors. Approximately 20-25% of the population encounter difficulties in using the internet and may benefit from more accessible website content, according to a 2003 study conducted by Microsoft.
Atarim in Tel-Aviv Coastline Ltd. believes and strives to facilitate equal accessible opportunities on the internet for people with a range of disabilities and/or that provide technological assistance to use the computer.
Accessible Site Pass
The Accessible Site pass is the initiative of Access Israel and the Israel Internet Association. The pass is positioned at sites that have the necessary modifications to make them accessible to people with disabilities.
The pass was positioned to promote public awareness of internet accessibility and to inform the visitors to the site of the level of accessibility.
This site complies with the requirements of the Equal Rights for Persons with Disabilities Regulations (Adjustments for Access to Service) 5773-2013.
The site corresponds with the recommendations of Israeli standard (SI 5568) on accessibility of internet content at an AA level and the recommendations of SCAG2.0 document form the organization W3C. The site is adapted for display on viewed browsers and use on cell phones.
Repairs that were made
This site underwent stringent adjustments for accessibility that include, inter alia, semantic and informative implementation for assistive technologies, establishment of navigation and operation with keyboard only based on the recommendations of the World Wide Web consortium (W3C), adjustments of color and addition of auxiliary labels and guidelines on forms for all visitors. In order to optimize the browsing experience with the screen reader program, we recommend using the latest NVDA software.
Some of the actions performed on the site
Keyboard navigation that makes it easier to browse the site without using a mouse, adjustments to the site’s compatibility for browsing with a NVDA screen reader, to block animation and any moving element on the site.
To achieve an optimal browsing experience with screen reader software, we recommend using the latest NVDA software.
It should be noted that despite our efforts to make all pages on the site, the attached documents, accessible, such as Word, PDF, Excel, the internal management system and video files are still in the stages of making them accessible and we are working to complete the process.
Added to the site is an external component of a virtual tour. The tour does not transmit content information because it is built by a third party provider that does not enable accessibility of the tour. At this stage, we are sending browsers to the accessible version on YouTube. We are also making a concerted effort to cause the provider to create an accessible version.

How to easily browse the site?
You can navigate the site forward with the TAB button. To navigate back, press SHIFT+TAB together.
Before the site’s main navigation menu there is a hidden button that appears when it receives keyboard focus. Clicking on it will open a kind of pop-up window. The site’s menu will appear inside the window. It can be closed by pressing the “ESC” button on the keyboard or by using the close button at the end. You can also navigate with the help of the keyboard arrows (up and down).
In the main menu you can navigate using TAB and SHIFT + TAB.
The accessibility menu includes buttons to change the font size, buttons to change the colors of the website, to ease viewing by increasing the website display by 200%, highlighting links, canceling accessibility on the website and other settings.
To make it easier to enter information in forms on the website, there is a dedicated tool on the website that enlarges the text while typing in the fields on the form. The tool works so that it opens and closes automatically when you are inside one of the fields in the form and does not interfere at all with filling out the form.
The accessibility menu can be closed and opened using F10
Navigating between areas
The site is divided into areas such as main content area or side menu area. Initially, every area has Level 5 title that notes the name of the area you reached. Some of the titles are links that you can use to skip the area, thereby helping you to faster reach the requested content. For example, there is an option to skip the main menu.
