Accessibility

Statutory guidelines complied with – accessible portals  www.swisspost.com and  www.postbus.ch

Label Access for All

Since 1.1.2004 federal authorities (government, the cantons and municipalities and all other public organisations) have had to design their websites in such a way that people with disabilities will be able to access them. Swiss Post has been implementing a barrier-free approach since May 2008.

Blind people can have web content read to them with reading software. The visually impaired are able to display all text and images in any size they like. Physically handicapped people can navigate around the website using only one key. Thanks to subtitles in audiovisual media, people with hearing disabilities can follow all recordings. All these improvements also benefit those with age-related conditions.

Certified in accordance with the highest quality level (AA+)

Swiss Post and PostBus Switzerland Ltd have been complying with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) for barrier-free web content at an AA+ level (double A plus) since 1 November 2012. This standard is compatible with the Federal Government's P028 recommendations. It guarantees web content that is effectively barrier-free and compliant with the Federal Act for Equality for the Disabled.
