We at Migdal Hayam Beinin Almog firmly believe that the Internet should be available and accessible to everyone and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of ability.
To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (W3C) 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) level AA.
These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide range of disabilities. Compliance with these guidelines helps us to ensure that the site will be accessible to the blind, people with motor impairments, visual impairments, cognitive impairments and more.
This website uses various technologies designed to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We use an accessibility interface that allows people with specific disabilities to adapt the user interface (user interface) of the site and design it for their personal needs.
In addition, the site uses an artificial intelligence-based application that runs in the background and continuously optimizes its level of accessibility. This application fixes the website’s HTML, adapts its functionality and behavior to screen readers used by blind users and keyboard functions used by people with motor impairments.

Screen reader and keyboard navigation
The Migdal Hayam website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, along with various behavioral changes, to ensure that blind users visiting with screen readers can read, understand and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen reader enters your site, they are immediately prompted to enter the screen reader profile so they can browse and operate your site efficiently. This is how our site covers some of the most important requirements for a screen reader:
- Optimization of screen readers: we run a process that studies the site’s components from top to bottom, in order to ensure ongoing compatibility even when the site is updated. In this process, we provide screen readers with meaningful data using the ARIA feature set. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions of actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); Validation guidelines for form input; Element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogs (pop-ups) and others.
Additionally, the background process scans all site images. It provides an accurate and meaningful description based on image-object-recognition as an ALT (alternative text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts embedded within the image using OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology. To enable screen reader adjustments at any time, users only need to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen reader users also receive automatic notifications to activate screen reader mode as soon as they enter the site.
These adjustments are compatible with popular screen readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver and TalkBack.
Additionally, keyboard users will find content skip menus available at any time by pressing Alt+2, or as the first element of the site while navigating with the keyboard. The background process also handles triggered popups by moving the keyboard focus to them as soon as they appear, not allowing focus to drift out.
Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (Menus), “H” (Headings), “F” (Forms), “B” (Buttons) and “G” (Graphics) to jump to specific elements.
Disability profiles are supported on our website
- Epilepsy Safe Profile: This profile allows people with epilepsy to use the site safely by eliminating the risk of seizures caused by flickering or blinking animations and dangerous color combinations.
- Visually Impaired Profile: This profile adjusts the site so that it is accessible to most visual impairments such as low vision, tunnel vision, cataracts, glaucoma and others.
- Cognitive Disability Profile: This profile provides various assistive features to help users with cognitive disabilities such as autism, dyslexia, CVA and others to focus on the essentials more easily.
- ADHD Friendly Profile : This profile significantly reduces distractions and noise to help people with ADHD, and neurodevelopmental disorders browse, read and focus on the essentials more easily.
- Blind User Profile (Screen Readers): This profile adapts the site to be compatible with screen readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver and TalkBack. The blind user’s computer has a screen reader installed, and this site is compatible with it.
- Keyboard navigation profile (motor impaired): This profile allows people with motor disabilities to activate the website using Tab, Shift+Tab and Enter keys. Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (Menus), “H” (Headings), “F” (Forms), “B” (Buttons) and “G” (Graphics) to jump to specific elements.
Additional adjustments of user interface, design and readability
- Font adjustments – users can increase and decrease its size, change its family (type), adjust the spacing, alignment, line height and more.
- Color Adjustments – Users can select different color contrast profiles such as light, dark, reverse and monochrome. In addition, users can change header, text and background color schemes with over seven different coloring options.
- Animations – epileptic users can stop all running animations with the click of a button. Animations controlled by the interface include videos, GIFs, and flashing CSS transitions.
- Content highlighting – users can choose to highlight essential elements such as links and titles. They can also choose to highlight only focused or floating elements.
- Audio Mute – Users with hearing aids may experience headaches or other problems due to automatic audio playback. This option allows users to mute the entire site instantly.
- Cognitive disorders – we use a search engine linked to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, which allows people with cognitive disorders to decipher meanings of phrases, acronyms, slang and others.
- Additional functions – we allow users to change the color and size of the cursor, use print mode, activate a virtual keyboard and many other functions.
Assistive technology and browser compatibility
We aim to support as many browsers and assistive technologies as possible, so that our users can choose the tools that work best for them, with as few restrictions as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all the major systems that account for over 95% of the user market share, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, JAWS and NVDA (screen readers), both for Windows users and for MAC users.
