Technical characteristics

Among others, the following measures are adopted to facilitate accessibility:

The language used, the structure of the contents and the context information are simple and coherent and easily understandable for people.

Use of (X)HTML code to create standard documents. The content is marked up with tags, providing context information and allowing the user to differentiate headings, sections, paragraphs, lists, etc.

The positioning of the content is done through the use of CSS cascading style sheets. These standard premises adequately mark and allow the separation of the structure and the presentation of the contents. This procedure ensures compatibility for different browsers and devices, allowing the use of assistive navigation technologies such as screen readers for the visually impaired.

A legible font size has been used. Texts have been checked for sufficient contrast with respect to background colours. The selected font size and colour shades can be modified with the tools provided by each browser. A legible font size has been used.

It has been checked that the texts have sufficient contrast with respect to the background colours. The selected font size and colour shades can be modified with the tools provided by each browser. Font sizes have been defined with relative units.

The use of pop-up windows is avoided.

The use of colour as the only element to give meaning to a content is avoided.

Links with Title. Links provide details of the destination of the hyperlink. Navigation should be simple. The links must be informative and must comply exactly with the information that users expect.

Forms have attributes that facilitate accessibility.

A content management system (WordPress) is used to help maintain the accessibility of content over time.
