Improves and customizes browsing experience for elderly people and people with disabilities
FACIL’iti is an Accessibility overlay tool, often referred to as a ‘comfort solution’ that – if implemented correctly, and on an already accessible website – can adapt the interface of a website in different ways for people with some disabilities. The solution, alone, however, neither ensures the compliance to international accessibility guidelines (WCAG) or full accessibility to people with disabilities, nor does it avoid associated legal risks.
To ensure that your Maisons site is accessible and meets local compliance standards, we recommend that all developers, designers and content contributors are trained, the foundation/ default design & code of the site is made accessible and that you check with your Maison legal representatives that any regional legal requirements are met. Solutions like FACIL’iti should be considered an optional add-on rather than a single-fix solution.
Overlay solutions (Facil’iti, AudioEye, AccessiBe etc.):
- Do not suffice to achieve our accessibility targets WCAG 2.1 AA
- Do not significantly affect the compliance rate
- Do not avoid the legal risk
