In the construction of this web portal, a series of measures have been adopted with the aim of ensuring the maximum number of people possible can access the information that it conveys and use the services provided through it, irrespective of the person's limitations or of those that arise from the context of use.
Thus, the following measures have been taken in the preparation of the portal:
- Use of CSS for the presentation of the information.
- Marker tags.
- Usable, intuitive and alternative browsing systems.
- Alternative descriptions on the images.
- Verifications on the display with different browsers and devices.
- Use of universal and alternative formats.
- The links provide details of the function or target of the hyperlink.
- Use of W3C standards.
- Access to main options by means of keyboard shortcuts.
- Browser window size adaptive design so that the portal is appropriately displayed on mobile devices.
