One of the Zalando promises is to offer the best customer experience to the widest audience possible. We are working actively on providing an accessible and usable website. Therefore, we introduced new functionalities to help everyone to enjoy the best of what we can offer.
Our accessibility promise
The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities recognises access to information and communications technologies, including the Web, as a basic human right.
Therefore, we offer on the shop, the product pages and the customer account new functionalities such as alternative text and screen readers to be accessible for everyone, no matter what device or assistive technology our customers are using.
The screen reader and the alternative text functions are forms of assistive technology (AT) useful to people who are visually impaired, illiterate, or have a learning disability. Thanks to a voice over function, people can have a vocal description of a page, a specific text, the product images and the links they click on towards the Zalando website.
We have successfully made these parts of the website accessible and we are currently working on offering the same level of usability to other parts of the website very soon.
As of now, our website contains accessible functionalities. If you are using the Zalando app and want to enable the accessible mode, please visit our website.
