February 8, 2019 Categroy: Digital , News


Kyoto City and Kyoto City Tourism Association has upgraded accessibility on multi-language Kyoto City Official Travel Guide for elder users or the visually impaired. FACIL’iti, a web system developed by a French company, automatically optimizes displays in accordance with users’ disabilities. 

The system is already used by Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau and Michelin on their official websites. Kyoto is the first organization in Japan to introduce the system.

Font size and highlight are changeable for elder users, and visual colors and coloration can be arranged for color-blind users. By selecting ‘Vision,’ ‘Movement,’ ‘Cognitive’ or ‘Temporary,’ a user is guided to the most appropriate profile.
