The accessibility is the way to accede to the information without and limitation due to a disability. There are many people who accede to the information of web sites from contexts that are very different from ours. We mean people who could have hearing, seeing and mobility difficulties. There could be people who have reading and comprehension problems; or people who cannot use the keyboard or the mouse properly. We can also include in this group those people who have an only text reader, a small screen a limited connection... Definitely, we are talking about users who with technological limitations.
These communities represent a 10 or 20% of the population, and navigating in the actual web sites is very difficult and sometimes impossible for them.
In order to solve these problems many instruments and tools have been created, which allow the adaptation of the computer so that it could interpret the different contents correctly (such as voice navigators or screen magnifiers).
The work of cic tourgune towards disabled people
In order that our web site could be available for most users, CICtourGUNE has tried to create an accessible web site for all of our clients and friends, regardless they are disabled or not. With all this, we want to contribute to the reduction of the barriers and social discrimination that have been created due to the new technologies.
Therefore, we have applied the Accessibility Guidelines or General Principles of Design established by the WAI working group (Web Accessibility Initiative) that belongs to the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium).
We have also used standard formats defined by the W3C and we have followed the Accessibility Policies generated by the WAI, fulfilling therefore the AA level.
If in spite of our work, you should find some navigation or visualization problems in our Web site, please, do not hesitate to contact us using the following electronic mail address firstname.lastname@example.org
The languages used for the contents and the structure are XHTML 1,0 and ASP 2,0, and to arrange the elements and to present them graphically we have used Cascade Style Sheets (CSS). All the pages have been validated as XHTML 1,0 and CSS 2.0.
