The Stages of Making the Website Accessible
As a rule, all the site pages are structured as accessible pages to the level required in the law. However, despite our efforts to make all the pages on the site accessible parts of the site that are not yet accessible might be found. It should be noted that a number of pages include external content that are not under our control and, therefore, they might not have been made accessible.
We are persisting with our efforts to improve the accessibility of the site as a part of our commitment to enable its use for the entire population, including people with disabilities.
