MIDO website accessibility

MIDO's commitment to web accessibility

We are committed to constantly improving the accessibility of our website, because we believe it is our moral duty to ensure a smooth, accessible and obstacle-free experience also for people with disabilities.
As a reference event for the optics sector, we are aware of the difficulties that browsing web content can present to users with disabilities, especially those who have vision problems or are visually impaired.
For this reason, we have implemented a customized solution on our site that offers users the possibility to choose alternative ways to access our content, in compliance with the main accessibility regulations.


The MIDO website implements the UserWay accessibility widget, a tool that allows the user to adapt the browsing experience of the site pages according to his own needs. Powered by a dedicated accessibility server, the software helps improving your site's compliance with web content accessibility guidelines (WCAG 2.1). The use of the widget is totally free for all users.

How to customize your browsing experience on

The UserWay widget on the website can be activated by clicking on the appropriate icon on the right of the screen on each page of the website, or via the CTRL+U keyboard shortcut.

Main accessibility features users can enable

Once widget command dashboard has been opened, the user can access a series of options that can be activated at will to change his browsing experience within the MIDO domain. We list them below:

Help us improving accessibility on our website

MIDO is constantly committed to improve and fix accessibility issues.
Despite our efforts to make all mido pages and contents fully accessible, some contents may still not have fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. This may be due to the lack of an appropriate technological solution we have not found out or identified yet.
