* Kiva Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director and President: Kota Nojiri, hereafter

We will be holding a seminar on “Tsuruha Holdings’ Perceptions of Web Accessibility” from 12:00 on Thursday, July 18, 2024, with Mr. Iwata, General Manager of the Media Promotion Department, Corporate Strategy Headquarters, as a guest. *
Under the Act on Eliminating Discrimination against Persons with Disabilities (*1), which was revised on April 1, 2024, businesses are now required to provide reasonable accommodation (*2), which was previously an obligation for administrative agencies and an obligation for businesses to make efforts. Now that it has become compulsory, there is an urgent need for companies to respond.
While there is a need for an environment in which all people, including people with disabilities and the elderly, can smoothly use information and services provided on the web, web accessibility is still unfamiliar, and a survey by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (*3)
According to
99.7%, of which only 4.6% meet the JIS standards for web accessibility. In this seminar, we will welcome Mr. Iwata from Tsuruha Holdings, a company that handles web accessibility, as a guest, and he will talk about why we started working on web accessibility, how we do it, and the future. We look forward to your participation.

*1 Act on the Elimination of Discrimination against Persons with Disabilities A law aimed at promoting the elimination of discrimination on the basis of disability in order to realize a society in which all citizens coexist while mutually respecting each other’s personality and individuality, without being divided by the presence or absence of a disability.
*2 Providing reasonable accommodation
If a person with a disability expresses a desire to have social barriers removed, take necessary and reasonable measures to remove the barrier, as long as the burden of doing so is not excessive. *3 Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications “Reiwa 4

* ■What is web accessibility?*
“People with limited physical and mental functions, such as the elderly and people with disabilities, can access and use information provided on the Web regardless of their age or physical conditions.” This is not just a special treatment for people with disabilities; anyone can be in the same situation as a person with a disability. ・Temporary injury or illness (such as being unable to use your arm due to a cast due to a traffic accident, or being unable to see due to an eye patch due to an eye disease)
・Changes due to aging
・Deterioration of visual acuity due to aging (presbyopia, changes in the crystalline lens (appearing yellowish, dark, blurry), etc.) ・Eye diseases common in middle-aged and elderly people (cataracts, glaucoma, etc.)
*Approximately half of people in their late 70s have cataracts with yellowing. ・Hearing loss due to aging
・Foreign travelers (Can foreigners who do not understand Japanese be able to obtain evacuation information in the event of an earthquake while traveling?)
