At bkr we are committed to making the site accessible for all, including people with disabilities. We are continuously improving the service we provide through the Accessibility App (App) to comply with increased accessibility standards, guidelines, and to make the browsing experience better for everyone.
The app uses the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defined requirements to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Accessibly App is following the best guidelines and is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA.
The app relies on the following technologies:
