Set up and Access

What’s your accessibility policy?

Yewno is committed to meeting international accessibility standards including Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act and W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (2.0 and 2.1 AA). There is one exception: WCAG 2.1 AA, 1.3.4 Guideline: Orientation, which relates to mobile phones. The product uses artificial intelligence to visualize a knowledge graph and show concepts and their connections. The design of this knowledge graph, which is an integral part of the product, is complex and intricate and cannot be displayed on a mobile handset as its size renders the design unusable. Please contact for a copy of our compliance.
