Web Accessibility Policy

As part of our commitment to achieving excellent usability for all users of our website, regardless of factors such as age or disability, KK Sapporo Shinko Kosha continues our efforts to improve the accessibility of this website.

In compliance with JIS X 8341-3:2016, “Guidelines for older persons and persons with disabilities – Information and communications equipment, software and services – Part 3: Web content”, as amended on March 22nd, 2016, we have established the following accessibility guidelines.

1. Defining “Web Accessibility”

“Web Accessibility” is defined as providing the facility for all users, inclusive of groups such as the elderly and those with disabilities, to utilize the information and functionality of web contents, such as websites, without impairment. (Source: Everyone’s Public Website Operational Guidelines (2016 Fiscal Year Version), Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications).

2. Scope

The scope shall be part of the websites operated by KK Sapporo Shinko Kosha, namely:https://okurayama-jump.jp/ and https://sapporo-olympicmuseum.jp/ .

3. Exceptions

  • Websites translated into other languages
    Due to impracticality of supporting web accessibility for pages which are automatically translated, such pages are not included in the scope.
  • Contents provided via external services
    Contents provided via external services, including SNS buttons such as Facebook and Twitter, Google Maps, and the like, are excepted.
    However, to the extent possible, substitute text information shall be provided for map information provided via Google Maps.
  • PDF Files
    While all possible considerations are made for achievement standards in the creation of PDF files, due to data volume and technical constraints, it is presently impractical to support Web Accessibility for all PDF files. Accordingly, such files are not included in the scope.
  • Pages including video content
    To the extent possible, we provide substitute text information for video files, however, it is presently impractical to support web accessibility for all video files. Accordingly, such pages are not included in the scope.

4. Objectives, achievement timeframes, and conformance levels

  • Timeframes
    1)http://sapporo-olympicmuseum.jp/ by June 30th, 2018
    2)http://okura.sapporo-dc.co.jp/ by April 30th, 2020
  • Rationale
    As part of our efforts to further improve convenience for all visitors, Sapporo Shinko Kosha is presently considering modernization of parts of the functionality of our facilities throughout Okurayama Ski Jump Stadium.
    We have also set a goal to meet ‘AA’ compliance level for the website of Sapporo Olympic Museum, which is a designated Sapporo municipally-managed facility.
  • Conformance Levels
    According to the display standards designated in Info-Communication Access Council Web Accessibility Infrastructure Committee’s “JIS X 8341-3:2016 Conformance Level Display Guidelines for Web Content“, in order to display “Conforms with AA Level Standards”, a website must first meet the standards of Level A conformance, and further meet all success criteria of Level AA.

We also comply with the following Level AAA achievement criterion.
