Accessibility Statement for Canon Europe website as of 21 July 2017
Canon Europe is committed to making our websites, apps and digital services as accessible as possible. Our aim is to combine compelling user experiences with high levels of accessibility and inclusivity, so everyone can use our digital services, whatever their abilities or disabilities. This is part of our dedication to seeing all people, regardless of culture, customs, language or race, living and working together for the common good – this is our corporate philosophy of kyosei, a deeply held belief which is at the heart of everything we do. Our ongoing site development, app development and content creation is guided by best-practice accessibility guidelines such as WCAG 2.0 and BS 8878.
While this site has been created to be usable ‘as is’, some people are likely to get the most accessible experience by customising their computer to suit their individual needs – for example: to get the site spoken to them, to change its colour-scheme, or increase the size of its text.
If that sounds like it would be useful to you, we recommend you visit:
BBC My Web, My Way or WAI’s Better Web Browsing: Tips for Customizing your Computer to read or watch videos of how these customisations (achieved by using accessibility features already on your computer, phone or tablet, or through installing assistive technologies) might suit you.
Through user-testing of our site with people with disabilities, we are aware that there are accessibility improvements that our site could beneﬁt from, and we have a plan in place to implement these. We are currently working to ﬁx the following issues, and we have a 12 month programme of work that includes items such as:
If any of these current limitations prevent you from getting the information or service you need from our site, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help you.
We are always looking to improve the accessibility of our site, so if you ﬁnd anything on the site difficult to use please let us know at email@example.com. To help us understand your difficulty quickly, it would help us if you provide the information advised in ‘Contacting Organisations about Inaccessible Websites’ in your request.
All constructive feedback regarding the accessibility or usability of our site is welcome and will be carefully considered.
This accessibility statement was last updated in May 2017 and follows the advice on accessibility statements in British Standard BS 8878.
