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.
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).
In this regard, the main measures adopted include the following:
We have tried to make it logical and intuitive to browse throughout the site, applying the same structure to all the pages:
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:
This website uses cascading style sheets (CSS) to display the information, facilitating access and correct display in different environments.
All the images contain a brief description, through "alt", "longdesc" or "title". The images used only as decorative elements will have empty descriptive texts.
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:
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
