Our Approach to Website Accessibility

Eisai is constructing a website for easy access and use by everyone, regardless of any disability an individual may have. This approach not only benefits persons with disabilities but is also an effective approach for persons in other adverse situations, such as those having weakened eyesight, having trouble operating a website temporarily because of an injury, or operating personal computers that lack the requirements to access websites sufficiently.
One specific step we have taken is to add voice information when the website content requires the use of images, thus enabling the content to be heard. Dependence is thus not solely on visual items such as color or shape but also on simple text information. Over a dozen items have been considered to improve accessibility. A portion of the information concerning OTC is provided by voice.
We welcome your comments and opinions related to improving our website accessibility.

Reference Guidelines for Accessibility

Eisai has prepared accessibility guidelines that refer to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG2.0) published by W3C, as well as the Guidelines for older persons and persons with disabilities - Information and communications equipment, software and services - Part 3: Web content (JIS X 8341-3) provided by JSA.

Approach to Preparation and Renewal of Content

  When a new page is to be prepared, or when a page is to be changed in some way, it is made publicly available online only after first evaluating it according to the company’s accessibility guidelines. Periodically, moreover, the overall webpage is reviewed according to the accessibility guidelines to determine whether all the content follows the guidelines.

The items considered regarding accessibility include the following:

  1. 1.Images
  2. 2.Video and Audio
  3. 3.Color and Shape
  4. 4.Tables
  5. 5.Effects
  6. 6.Display Methods
