ITU web accessibility statement
This accessibility statement applies to itu.int web pages and sub-domains. These pages are run by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

- access to webpages using just a keyboard
- sufficient colour contrast, font sizes and weights
- the ability to navigate webpages using speech recognition software
- the ability to listen to webpages using a screen reader
- captioning for corporate videos in all six official languages
- simple language and formatting, minimizing jargon and acronyms as much as possible
We aim for the website to comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.

We are continuing to raise awareness and share guidelines throughout ITU.
