Accessibility

The design of this website has been completed and reviewed according to the guidelines defined in the document 'Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0' (Content Accessibility Guidelines Web 1.0), issued by the working group WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) belonging the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) .

You follow the recommendations and standards established by the W3C, particularly those relating to the use of XHTML 1.0 and cascading style sheets (CSS 2), which ensures compatibility between different versions of web browsers to separate the structure of the pages of its contents.

According to the manual and automatic validations conducted, the website reaches AA accessibility as it complies with all priority 2 guidelines. Also meets many of the Priority 3 guidelines, for the AAA level accessibility.

The WAI group has drafted a recommendation set of guidelines for creating accessible web pages. This is vital to improve access to Web content to as many people and in as many situations as possible, for example:

  • Groups of people with disabilities of sight, hearing, movement, or difficulty processing certain types of information.
  • Groups of people with difficulty reading text.
  • Groups of people with difficulty using the keyboard or mouse.
  • Groups of people who do not understand or speak fluently the language in which web content is developed.
  • Situations where a screen is used without graphics mode, small size screen, or a slow connection.
  • Situations in which the user has their eyes, ears or hands interfered with by some external agent (for example, work in conditions of high or low light, in a noisy environment, etc).
  • Using an older browser or different device (phone, PDA, TV), voice browser, or different OS.

It is important to understand, therefore, that access should not be understood only to users with physical impairments, but also extends to users, without such deficiencies may be involved in an experience of lack of access to web content, and either because they use another device (now you can navigate with a PDA with a mobile, with a TV or even refrigerators), or because environmental conditions are not the best. Moreover, the erroneous thought that making accessible design means that you can not use graphics, animations, etc, and an accessible page must be visually unattractive. This is not true, just always have alternatives should be sought for the animations, images or scripts that are used in websites.

The guidelines mark the WAI group involve a number of tasks. These patterns are associated with a level of accessibility. Priority 1 guidelines must be followed as long as they are those that ensure a minimum level of accessibility. If you meet all, you get a level A conformance. Priority 2 guidelines should be met, and that otherwise would be affected various groups outlined above. Full compliance with these guidelines carries a AA level of compliance. Finally, the consortium should meet the standards in level 3 (level AAA), albeit with an AA level ensures access to most of the content for most user groups. Curiously, the website of the Working Group W3C WAI has no conformance level AAA, but AA.
