Accessibility refers to the possibility for everyone, including people who are differently-abled, to access and use technology and information products. From an aging workforce to more than 1 billion people with disabilities worldwide (according to the World Health Organization), many people need accessible technologies.
Business enterprises have increasingly become aware of the requirements of people who need accessible technologies to contribute to a work environment. Accessibility is not only of social but also economic importance for the enterprise.
SAP takes pride in its diverse workforce. To foster a global culture of inclusion, we are strongly committed to respecting and protecting human rights throughout the lifecycle of our products and services: from design through development to use. Hence, our products are increasingly guided by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA, included in US Section 508, and the harmonized EN 301 549 including WCAG 2.1 Level AA.
