Accessibility on the Internet, i.e. the unrestricted and simple accessibility of web offers for all people, becomes more and more important for social interactions. Web pages or applications are considered to be barrier-free if they have a high degree of user-friendliness to guarantee that people with restrictions, e.g. in seeing, hearing or in the case of technical or linguistic impairments, do not have to accept any disadvantages by using the web offer.
"Especially for whistleblower systems as a low-threshold reporting channel for the clarification and prevention of grievances in companies, barrier-free accessibility for all people is an important aspect. Our certification with the WACA seal was therefore a particular concern for us and we are very pleased that with BKMS® Incident Reporting we are not only offering the first barrier-free whistleblower system, but also the first web app in Europe that is equally accessible for all users," says Kai Leisering, CEO of Business Keeper AG.
WACA (Web Accessibility Certificate Austria) is the first independent certification, which makes the accessibility according to the international W3C guidelines (WCAG 2.0 or 2.1 - AA) visible. With BKMS® Incident Reporting, the WACA has now for the first time issued certification based on the WCAG 2.1 test criteria, which are significantly more comprehensive than those of WCAG 2.0.
