Why an accessible Website?
LIA wants to create a website accessible for the greater number of possible users, regardless their personal or technological limitations. It is based on the application and performance of the Accessible Guidelines of Accessible Design established by the WAI ( www.w3.org/WAI) that belongs to W3C, a Consortium for the la World Wide Web ( www.w3.org)
This Website accomplishes the second level of accessibility.
Use of Standards:
This Website has been implemented following the CSS Standard of level 2, achieving a maximum separation between presentation and content.
Variable font size and liquid design:
The Website Layout has been developed using relative unities, as well as the text size. Therefore, the website will be correctly visualize regardless the resolutions and the user will be able in case that he or she has the corresponding technical support, increase or reduce the text size. For example, if you use Internet Explorer, you can go to the menu Edition…
Description of abbreviations and acronyms:
All the abbreviations and acronyms used in the LIA Website have their corresponding description.
We have 2 navigation bars, one with the Assistant Menu (Home, Contact and Accessibility) and other with the Main Menu of the Website. The user will always have accessible all the sections of the Website.
Navigation through the tabulator:
To favour the navigation through the keyboard, the website has a logical order of the website contents. First we go through the assistant menu options, following by the main menu and finally, the content of the website.
Possibility of jumping the menus:
For those users that use only-text navigators or navigators that read the screen, it is possible for them to avoid reading constantly both menus in each page. We have created links for jumping those sections and access directly to the website content. These links also have a keyboard shortcut.
Some shortcuts have been enabled to speed up the navigation through the website. In order to be able to use those shortcuts, a combination of keys must be used ALT + Shortcut Key (in Internet Explorer 4.0, Netscape, Mozilla Firebird,) or ALT + Shortcut Key + ENTER (Internet Explorer 5 or superiors) or Majuscules + Esc in Opera. If you are using MacOS the combination is CONTROL + Shortcut Key.
