The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) will work to realize an easily accessible MOFA Website, which allows the elderly and people with disabilities to use the information and services provided on the site without any difficulties. For that purpose, this site will aim to conform to the guideline stipulated in JIS X8341-3 ("Guidelines for older persons and persons with disabilities - Information and communications equipment, software and services - Part 3: Web content"), which is provided by the Japanese Standards Association.
In order to achieve this goal, we have established specific accessibility standards for this site corresponding to each JIS guideline. Furthermore, we relevant personnel received training on web accessibility, so as to establish a system which enables creation of a website satisfying the above goal.
We will continue to work to create a website that conforms to accessibility standards, as well as modify existing pages, as needed, and make efforts to realize a more accessible website.
