What is accessibility?

Accessibility consists of unlimited access to the information by any person, irrespective of the sensorial, physical or technical disability.
They are many people who access the information on our website from very different contexts to our own.
We can have users who:

  • Use voice translators, Braille, without sound card or use browsers in text mode.
  • Find it difficult to make out colours, users with black and white systems.
  • Are visually impaired that have to amplify the letter on a website.
  • Dyslexic
  • Have motor function difficulties, who are not able to interact with moving objects.
  • Who cannot use the mouse.
  • Who have old-fashioned browsers, or very new but not popular, or who have disabled services on their browser.
  • Have cognitive problems.

In short, accessibility is not only of interest for the disabled, but also improves access to the website in general.
