WebXL is committed to providing equal opportunities for people with disabilities. To this end, we have made an effort to comply with the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 at Level AA.
Compliance with WCAG 2.1
All pages on this site are written in valid HTML5 code. Valid code ensures that assistive technologies (such as screen readers) can work correctly. The site is designed with high-contrast colors that allow for optimal use by people with low vision and color blindness. The content on the site is semantic. It contains headings, tables of information, lists, paragraphs, standard links, form controls, and descriptions for images that are meaningful.
There are some areas of content on frames that are displayed from other sites. These areas are defined with title attributes. However, their accessibility depends on the host site. For example, the Facebook area on the content pages.

How to browse the site using a screen reader?
This information is intended for blind or visually impaired users who use screen reader software. Landmarks are marked on the site to mark the main content areas of the site. ARIA is also used to help with complex applications such as information carousels on the main pages, drop-down menus, modals for displaying images, content accordions, and tabs.
The structure of all pages on the site is the same and includes the following units:
- Keyboard shortcut links
- Main menu – contains links to lobby pages and main topics
- Page title and subheading
- Page content
- Supplemental content area in some pages
- Bottom menu
All menus are built using lists to allow for easy navigation.
All areas on the site pages are defined using headings and landmarks as mentioned.
Subtitles have been added to some of the videos, but not all. We are working to add subtitles to the audio content on the site.
The videos are displayed in HTML5 format to make it easier to use the keyboard.
