Edenred’s Web Accessibility Commitment
At Edenred, we want as many people as possible to be able to use the content on our websites and platforms. Our mission is be the everyday inclusive companion for the millions of people we serve, and a very important part of that is ensuring that all of employees, suppliers, clients, users and merchants can connect with us regardless of how they are viewing our sites. Through our membership of Business Disability Forum, we’re able to tap into best practices to creating a disability-smart world together; making the Edenred websites and platforms as usable and accessible as possible for everyone.
Our goal to ensure any new content on our intranet and our externally facing websites are accessible to everyone. This means that anyone, anywhere, can access this information on any device using any adaptive or assistance technology. This is not a static effort; we strive to continually improve and evolve as technology and disability aids change. All new content produced will be lead sensibly and practically by Web Content Accessibility guidelines 2.1 (WCAG2.1) produced by the Worldwide Web Consortium (WC3, the web’s governing body) which defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. We use external leading software testing and digital services partners to validate we conform to WCAG2.1 AA alignment as a minimum with annual tests conducted in Q3 year over year.
For those not familiar with the WCAG, this is a set of checkpoints that help ensure that web sites are designed and written properly. For example:
- Images have alternative text (so if you can’t see the image you can still read the text)
- Colour contrast between foreground and background is sufficiently strong
- Text re-sizes according to user preference
- Headings are correctly used (they’re not just ordinary text made to look big and bold). Links make sense by themselves (e.g. no instances of links that just say “Click here” or “More…”)
- Tables are used for laying out tabular information and have proper headings and summaries
All pages on the website are built with appropriate technology available at the time of construction. This enables us to align to the guidelines set by the accessibility standards.
