Accessibility

ACCIONA is committed to increase accessibility to disabled people, including those people with physical or cognitive disabilities, and irrespective of the technological devices used to access information. In line with this commitment, the company has been following the Accessibility Guidelines defined by the permanent work group, Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), part of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), at AA level.

Therefore, this website puts into practice the requirements established by the UNE 139803:2004, a regulation that sets out a series of characteristics the entire web portal must comply with in order to offer accessibility. It also serves as a basis for the TIC Accessibility Certification currently in force in Spain.

The ACCIONA web site has been designed using XHTML (eXtensible Hypertext Markup Language) and style sheets which comply, wherever possible, with the XHTML 1.0 and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) validations of the W3C.

The principle measures adopted for guaranteeing accessibility include the following:

 

  • Size of text. The fonts used have relative dimensions, such that the user can control the size from their browser.
  • Design, browsing and interactivity. The aim has been to achieve coherent browsing throughout the web site, using the same structural schemas on all pages.
  • Keyboard shortcuts. A series of keyboard shortcuts have been defined for access to the browser menu options and for the links included at the foot of the page. These shortcuts will depend upon the browser used:
    • For Internet Explorer 5 and above, press alt, the shortcut key and then intro.
    • With Mozilla and Netscape press alt and the corresponding shortcut key.
    • With Firefox for PC environment, press alt plus the capital key plus the shortcut key.
    • With Opera for PC environment, press the capital key plus the esc key plus the shortcut key. 

Comments concerning Web Accessibility

To prepare the titles on the pages, the sIFR (Scalable Inman Flash Replacement) technique has been used, which permits the use of special typography through a combination of Flash and JavaScript technologies. Where these technologies are not available, the titles remain the same. Nevertheless, if while browsing the user decides to increase the size of the text, in order to make this increase effective on the titles, the page must be reloaded into the browser.

Due to its content or the necessary technology, some PDF documents have certain accessibility problems. These documents can be seen using the free application: Adobe Reader.
