  • Accessibility


    Architas Multi-Manager limited (Architas) website was awarded the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level A rating of World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) / Web Accessibility Initative (WAI) from e-Accessibility Association.

    Our Accessibility Policy

    The WCAG 2.0 international guidelines provide a variety of recommendations for how websites should be made accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities. This includes blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity and combinations of these. Respecting these guidelines guarantees people with disabilities access to content on our websites, and also makes our web content and navigation clearer and more user friendly to all of our website visitors.

    Our website has content which is compatible with navigation tools such as text-to-speech and Braille displays, which are often used by blind website visitors. Visually impaired users can adjust the site display (text size etc) to meet their needs, and users who have lost the use of their hands can navigate our websites without a mouse.
    If you have any questions or comments about Architas’ Accessibility Policy, you can contact the Web team by emailing architasmarketingstore@architas-mm.com.
