Accessibility accreditation label renewed for smartcity.brussels

Accessibility accreditation label renewed for smartcity.brussels

24 January 2018

The smart city is only really one if it includes each and everyone in the positive contributions it makes to daily life. This is also the case – and necessarily so – online, including on this website that has just renewed its AnySurfer certificate accrediting its accessibility to people with disabilities.

The priority given to equal opportunities is a constant in the policies implemented in the Brussels-Capital Region. It is also the case with respect to digital materials, including the information provided online. equal.brussels states in this regard that “Digital accessibility is another aspect of accessibility, which consists of making the Internet and applications accessible to people with disabilities. … An adapted website gives each user equal access to the information”. equal.brussels wants to establish equal opportunities for all the citizens of the Brussels Region (FR/NL), without distinction of gender, ethnic or cultural origin, sexual orientation or disability

An effort every day

This smartcity.brussels web portal is of course no exception to this rule. Shortly after its launch, the site was awarded the AnySurfer accreditation label which, in Belgium, certifies that a website is accessible. Several elements are taken into account for this accreditation, including the content, the presentation of this content and the technical architecture of the site. The renewal of the label demonstrates the continual efforts undertaken by the portal team to offer easy access and navigation to all its visitors. AnySurfer - toward an accessible Internet
