Website accessibility 

An accessible website is a website which enables people with disabilities and the elderly to browse with the same level of effectivity and enjoyment as other users. Around 20-25% of the population have difficulties when using the internet, and can benefit from more accessible internet content – this is according to a study conducted by Microsoft in 2003

The Netanya Municipality believes in and works for equal opportunities in the internet setting for people with a range of disabilities and people who employ assistive technology when using a computer
