・As a part of the Disability Discrimination Act

Regarding the “Disability Discrimination Act,” on April 1, 2016 in the website of the “Cabinet Office”, the “Disability Discrimination Act” has been put into operation.
As a result, for national or local governments as a legal obligation and for private businesses as an obligation to make effort, the following correspondence is required: “if the burden associated with the implementation of fault clearing is not excessive, necessary and reasonable accommodation must be made.”
A website is a media based on the character information, but we believe reasonable accommodation is necessary for those with disabilities who find it difficult to read characters.
Why not make a handicapped accessible website by implementing the “Web Yomishokunin” ,which can support the user’s understanding of the contents by reading aloud the website and at the same time enlarging the portion being read, and aim for a website where anyone can use with ease?

As a part of the CSR activities

Corporations perform business activities involving variety of stakeholders, such as employees, customers, business partners, suppliers, consumers and shareholders. Amongst them are elderly people or those who have a hard time reading characters.
Corporations are required to consider these users, where they can access the latest information (through the corporation’s Website) without any hesitance.
Implementing the webpage read aloud service ” Web Yomishokunin” which achieves a handicapped accessible website, will make it possible to communicate with more people.

For Local Governments

Achieving an easy-to-use website for the elderly

A wide variety of users visit the websites run by the local government and public institutions.
Due to the increase of the aging population, there will be more number of elderly users, and it will become important to create an easy-to-read website for the elderly. By implementing the “Web Yomishokunin” , even for the elderly and those with poor vision who find it difficult to read small characters on the website, there will be more options for listening to the contents of the website by sound. Furthermore the size of the character in the subtitle display can be changed, which will lead to having a website with high public awareness where people can easily have access to information.

As a handicapped accessible website

We will provide a website where not just the elderly, but also people of the visually impaired, low vision, and those who have difficulty reading characters such as dyslexic people, and colorblind people can use pleasantly.
The size of the characters in the subtitle can be adjusted in three stages from regular to extra-large, and the color of the character and background can be selected from 20 colors.
