As the Internet grows in popularity, websites became important information sources to many people. Websites are open not only for the convenience of certain people, but for anybody who wants to use them.
Because of this, Chisso Corporation puts maximum into maintaining a website that allows people to use it in a comfortable manner.
Creating a Website that People Can Comfortably Use
Our efforts include designing a website that allows all information to be obtained by any equipment and/or software, no matter what the operating instructions are.
In particular, we place emphasis on making sure that the elderly and disabled people will be able to use our website with ease. For example, our website takes into consideration those who use voice output software and people who have difficulty properly reading the content when looking at the screen. Additionally, we make arrangements that allow people who have difficulty using a mouse and keyboard to use our website in an easier manner.
