Ripe, as a software service provider for this client, is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities on the lodging booking engine website. We continue to make changes to improve the user experience for everyone in an effort to apply the relevant accessibility standards.
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA.
Wherever possible, Ripe will aim to adhere to level AA of the WCAG 2.1 guidelines, which states that sites should be:
- Perceivable – Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive.
- Operable – User interface components and navigation must be operable.
- Understandable – Information and the operation of user interface must be understandable.
- Robust – Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies.
As part of our efforts to increase accessibility, Ripe makes available the UserWay Website Accessibility Widget. The software allows Ripe to improve its compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1).
Ripe continues its efforts to constantly improve the accessibility of its site and services to allow seamless, accessible and unhindered use also for those of us with disabilities.
In an ongoing effort to continually improve and remediate accessibility issues, we also regularly scan our website with UserWay's Accessibility Scanner to identify and fix accessibility barriers on our site. Despite our efforts to make all pages and content on fully accessible, some content may not have yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. This may be a result of ongoing efforts underway or not having found or identified the most appropriate technological solution.
