A better access for everybody
Accessibility is the access to the information without limitations due to deficiency, disability or handicap. Many people reach the information included in our site from very different contexts, because...
- They may suffer from hearing, vision or mobility difficulties.
- They may have reading or comprehension difficulties.
- They may not be able to use the keyboard or mouse.
- They may have a text-based reader, a small screen, or a slow connection.
Accessibility is not only interesting for disabled people, it also improves the general access to the website. Our accessibility guidelines are the following:
- Compliance with the WCAG standards (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) of the WAI protocol (Web Accessibility Initiative), at the AA level and part of the AAA level. These regulations are internationally valid and are officially recognised as an Internet standard by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium).
- Verification of the compliance with the aforementioned guidelines by means of the Web Accessibility Test (TAW). This tool is promoted by the Department of Employment and Social Affaires, in accordance with what the Law of Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce stipulates.
Of course, we are aware that this portal's accessibility can be improved and we are working in this direction. We invite you to help us in this effort with your suggestions.
