Accessibility means providing access to the information on Web sites regardless of physical (visual, hearing or motor impairments), technological (slow connection, old browser, slow screen, etc.) or user environment limitations.
There are millions of people with some kind of impairment for whom browsing a Web site is extremely complicated. For this reason, we have designed our Web site with an eye on efficiently contributing towards the reduction of accessibility barriers and designing a site accessible to the greatest number of users.
With this aim in mind, we have followed the Accessibility Guidelines of the WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) and have applied the standard formats recommended by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium).
The main measures adopted include the following:
Efforts have been made to achieve logical, intuitive browsing throughout the site, applying the same structure to all pages:
Access keys are key combinations which permit shortcuts to the contents of the Web site without having to use a mouse.
The method by which access keys are activated depends on the operating system and the browser. The most common are:
This Web site can be browsed with the following short-cut access keys
Note: Netscape 4, Camino, Galeon, Konqueror, Omniweb, Safari (below 1.2), Opera Windows/Linux (below 7.0) do not support shortcut access keys.
Links which require descriptions include one via the "title" attribute, clearly indicating the destination of the link.
This Web site uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to present information, facilitating access and correct viewing in different environments.
All images include a brief description via "alt", "longdesc" or "title".
Those images used for purely decorative purposes have blank descriptive texts.
Relative font sizes which can be configured by the user have been used to make reading the contents of the Web site easier.
To increase or decrease the size of the letters, proceed as follows:
All the pages have been validated with XHTML 1.0 Transitional and CSS 1.0, and accessibility has been analysed with the TAW, tool, achieving accessibility level double-A.
We have checked the correct viewing of this Web site on different versions of the main browsers used (Internet Explorer 6.0 and higher, Mozilla Firefox 1.5 and higher, Opera 8 and higher).
We are aware, however, that merely complying with all these criteria does not ensure easy access to contents. We would, therefore, be pleased to receive your suggestions at: email@example.com.
