Accessibility

Accessibility

Accessibility consists of providing access to the information contained in a website regardless of any physical (visual, hearing or motor disability), technological (slow connection, old browser, etc.) or environmental limitations of the users.

Aim

Currently, there are millions of people with varying difficulties for whom browsing a website can be very complicated. Therefore, in developing our website, we have aimed to effectively help break down accessibility barriers and design a website that is accessible for the majority of users.

With this aim, we have followed the Accessibility Guidelines established by the WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) and we have applied the standard formats recommended by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium).

Verification points

In this regard, the main measures adopted include the following:

1. Browsing

We have tried to make it logical and intuitive to browse throughout the site, applying the same structure to all the pages:

  • The main navigation bar with links to the main sections of the website and the options available in each section.
  • A central area that shows a route to show you which section and subsections you are in at all times and the information about them.

2. Keyboard shortcuts

The keyboard shortcuts or accesskeys are combinations of keys that allow access to the website content directly without using a mouse. The way the keyboard shortcuts are activated depends on the operating system and browser. The most common ones are:

  • On Windows systems, with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Safari browsers, you must type the sequence: ALT + SHORTCUT, depending on the type of function you must press the ENTER key afterwards.
  • On Windows systems, with Firefox: ALT + SHIFT + SHORTCUT
  • On Windows systems, with Opera: SHIFT + ESC, and when the help appears on screen, release the keys and press SHORTCUT.
  • On MAC systems, the key sequence is: CONTROL + SHORTCUT This site website may be navigated using the following keyboard shortcuts:
  • Key 0 -> Direct access or shortcut to the homepage
  • Key 1 -> Direct access to the "Children's fashion" section
  • Key 2 -> Direct access to the "Items for babies" section
  • Key 3 -> Direct access to the "Online shop" •
  • Key 4 ->Direct access to the "Blog" section
  • Key 5 -> Direct access to the "Where to buy" section
  • Key 6 -> Direct access to the "Company" section
  • Key 7 -> Direct access to the "Professional area" section
  • Key 8 -> Direct access to the "Press" section
  • Key 9 -> Direct access to the "Newsletter" section

3. Links

The links that require it contain a description using the attribute "title", indicating clearly the link destination. In addition, we have tried to avoid, as far as possible, links to javascript functions.

4. Visual design

This website uses cascading style sheets (CSS) to display the information, facilitating access and correct display in different environments.

5. Images

All the images contain a brief description, through "alt", "longdesc" or "title". The images used only as decorative elements will have empty descriptive texts.

6. Typography

We have used relative font sizes that can be configured by the user to aid reading the website content.

To increase or decrease the font size, simply follow these steps:

  • In most browsers, access the "View" menu.
  • Select "Text size".
  • Mark the desired option.

Level of accessibility

All the pages have been validated as XHTML 1.0 Transitional and CSS 2.1 and the accessibility has been analysed with the tool TAW, and the level achieved was double-A (AA).

We have checked this website is displayed correctly in different versions of the main browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Chrome, Opera and Safari).

Nevertheless, we know that the simple fact of complying with all these criteria does not ensure easy access to our content. Therefore, we would like to ask you to send your suggestions to the following address: info@tuctuc.com
