The Museum Site Was Adapted to International Standards

News 23 October 2020

The Holodomor Museum team has adapted its official website to international standards. We want to tell about how it has changed since the adaptation.

Implementing the project “Accessible site — accessible museum”, which is implemented with the support of the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation, we tried to take into account the interests of our entire audience. The updated design of the site meets the international standards of web accessibility WCAG.

  • Users can now change the color scheme and font size as they wish, making it easier for visually impaired people to access the content.
  • For blind site visitors, alternative text and descriptions of historical photos have been added to the images, and all pages and links to the site have become available to screen readers. The archive of documents on the Holodomor mechanism, which have the format of images, will also be supplemented with text transcripts.
  • We facilitated site navigation for people with musculoskeletal disorders — the desired page can be found using the keyboard without using the mouse.
  • Parallel pages written in simplified language are created for people with mental disorders
  • It is planned to place an audio tour for the blind and a video tour accompanied by sign language.

Nowadays, everyone can easily find the information about the history of the Holodomor, the museum’s activities and its educational programs on our website!
