Walk For Africa strives to ensure that its services are accessible to people with disabilities. Walk For Africa has invested a significant amount of resources to help ensure that its websites and mobile apps are made easier to use and more accessible for people with disabilities, with the strong belief that every person has the right to live with dignity, equality, comfort and independence.
Accessibility on Digital Platforms
Our digital platforms, Walk4africa.org and Eventsin.africa, make available the UserWay Website Accessibility Widget that is powered by a dedicated accessibility server. The software allows Walk For Africa to improve its compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1).
Enabling the Accessibility Menu
The Walk4africa.org accessibility menu can be enabled either by hitting the tab key when the page first loads or by clicking the accessibility menu icon that appears on the corner of the page. After triggering the accessibility menu, please wait a moment for the accessibility menu to load in its entirety.
Accessibility at Physical Events
In support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Walk For Africa is in the process of compiling a Sustainable Tourism Guidelines Manual, which will be added as a free downloadable PDF document on this website.
In addition, our outdoor events marketplace initiative at Events In Africa encourages Africa-based event organisers to show their commitment to sustainable and accessible tourism by displaying relevant icons when listing events. These icons are then endorsed by users after participating in an event and ranked on a sliding scale of 0 for non-existent to 10 for excellent.
Walk For Africa continues its efforts to constantly improve the accessibility of its digital platforms and services in the belief that it is our collective moral obligation to allow seamless, accessible and unhindered use also for those of us with disabilities.
In an ongoing effort to continually improve and remediate accessibility issues, we also regularly scan Walk4africa.org with UserWay’s Accessibility Scanner to identify and fix every possible accessibility barrier on our site.
Despite our efforts to make all pages and content on our digital platforms fully accessible, some content may not have yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. This may be a result of not having found or identified the most appropriate technological solution.
