Accesibility

This web site was designed and programmed following the directives of the WAI initiative, which sets some international standards regarding the creation of web contents accessible for everybody.

This web site fulfils the following standards:

  • W3C XHTML 1.0 Strict
  • W3C CSS
  • W3C WAI AA
  • TAW 3 AA

This is a subjective opinion since not all the directives of accessibility can be measured automatically. The directives were checked and all the pages of this sites are considered to fulfil them.

Accessibility guidelines

Diverse measurements were taken to do more accessible the web site, between those:

  • Logical order of presentation of the elements in the screen.
  • Descriptive text about the images.
  • Access to all options through keyboard short-cuts.
  • Semantic XHTML. The etiquette H2 is used as title of the page, the H3 for sections and the h3 for subsections inside the web page. For example, in this page, the users of JAWS can jump to the following section pressing Alt + Insert + 3.
  • All the pages have an element indicating the position inside the website and the way to it.
  • All the pages they have a bar of search.
  • CSS has been used for this website design.
  • Related font sizes have been used in this website.

Links

  • Links which text does not describe completely the destination have titles with an explanation.
  • Links make sense out of context. Some browsers (such as JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx and Opera) can extract the list of links of the current page so so the user can surf on this list. Links are not duplicated and if so, it is because they link to the same content.
  • There are no pseudo-links javascript. All the links can be followed in any browser, even with JavaScript disabled.
