What is accessibility?
Accessibility means access to information without limitation, by any person regardless of disability, whether sensory, physical or technical.
Many people who come to our pages for information come from very different contexts to ours.
We can users who:
- Use speech translators, braille, no sound card or use text-based browsers.
- Have difficulty distinguishing colors, users with monochrome systems.
- Have eye troubles so they have to increase the font size of a web page.
- Are dyslexics.
- Have motor difficulties, that are not able to interact with moving objects.
- Can not use a mouse.
- Use outdated browsers or new but not very popular ones or have disabled browser services.
- With cognitive difficulties.
Ultimately, Accessibility is not only of interest for people with disabilities it also improves access to the web in general.
Our accessibility guidelines are the following:
We have relied on the implementation and enforcement of accessibility guidelines or General Principles of Accessible Design established by the Working Group WAI (Accessibility Initiative Web) of the W3C (Consortium for the World Wide Web).
- Visual Design. This website uses layered and cascading style sheets (CSS) for visual formatting information. Based on the XHTML 1.0 standard for the source code of the web page and CSS-1, achieving a maximum separation between presentation and content.
