Accesibility

One of the objectives of this website is full accessibility for all users

Accessibility consists of access to information not restricted by deficiency, disability or handicap. Many people access the information on our pages from contexts that are very different to our own. This is because...

  • They may have problems with hearing, sight or mobility.
  • They may have reading or understanding difficulties.
  • They may not be able to use the keyboard or mouse. 
  • They may have a text-only reader, a small screen or a slow connection.
  • Etc...

Accessibility is not of interest only to the disabled; it also improves access to the web in general.

Accordingly, these are our accessibility guidelines: 

Compliance with the WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) for WAI protocol (Web Accessibility Initiative), at level A and part of level AA.. These guidelines are applicable worldwide and are officially recognised as an Internet standard by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium).

Verification of compliance with the abovementioned guidelines using the Test d'Accessibilité Web (TAW). This tool is supplied by the Spanish Ministry of Work and Social Affairs in accord with the provisions set forth in the Law for the Information Society and Electronic Commerce Services.

Scope of our accessibility policy

Unfortunately, the accessibility of some web content is limited and is not at the same level as the rest of the site. In particular, this refers to the virtual visit (completely developed in Flash) and some of the available PDF documents.

Of course, we are aware that the accessibility of this portal can be improved and we are currently working on it. We would like you to help us do this by sending us your comments and suggestions.
