The Accessibility in 2creativo.net
What does accessibility mean and why should we take it into consideration?
Accessibility means ease of use, visit and access something by everyone, especially by those with some type of incapacity.
The Web accessibility offers a universal access to the Web, independent of the type of hardware/software, network infrastructure, language, geographic location and capacities of the user.
Many people accede to the Websites information from very different contexts and can have:
- Ear, vision or mobility Problems,
- Reading or understanding difficulties,
- Impossibility to use the keyboard and/or the mouse,
- A text navigator, small screen or slow connection, etc
These groups constitute between a 10% and a 20% of the population and for them navigating through a nonstandard Web is very difficult and sometimes even impossible.
In order to know more about Accessibility:
The accessibility in 2creativo.net
In 2creativo we are firmly commited with the Web accessibility.
The main measures we have adopted to improve the accessibility are following:
We have implanted a simple, comprehensible and effective structure.
- Size of the text:
The typographies have relative dimensions, so that the user can control their size through the browser’s menu.
We have used a coherent structure in the entire Website, following the same structural schemes in every page to facilitate its navigation.
There are detailed descriptions of contents in:
- Images: Visible location of the cursor over any image.
- Acronyms: Visible location of the cursor over any acronym (dotted underlining).
- Links: Visible location of the mouse over any of them (continuous underlining).
The links to other external pages appear with the message “external link”. We have used the “hreflang” label if the destiny of these links is in a different language .
We have successfully verified the correct visualization of this Website with successful results in different versions of the main browsers (Internet Explorer 5,5 and superiors, Mozilla Firefox 1,3 and superiors, Safari, Google Chrome, Opera, …), platforms (SO: Windows and MAC), equipments and configurations.
- Keyboard shortcuts or Accesskey:
“Accesskey” is the name of the keyboard shortcuts that allow access to different options of the menu without using the mouse. These shortcuts are underlined with a grey line in the upper menu.
In this Web a series of keyboard shortcuts (Accesskey) for the access to their pages has been settled down.
They are following.
- Homepage (Hello): “H”
