Not all people access the web in the same way. Hearing problems, vision or mobility difficulties in using the mouse and /or keyboard, connectivity difficulties, such as the use of textonly browsers, small screens, slow internet connection, etc., represent, often, an insurmountable obstacle when accessing information that the Internet offers.
With the intention to facilitate navigation, the pages of website, BECICLON, have been developed following the guidelines set out in the Iniciativa de Accesibilidad Web, conocida como WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative), developed by the W3C.
We have also identified a number of keyboard shortcuts to the most important sections of the site to facilitate navigation for people who have problems with, or do not have, pointing devices as the mouse. With the same purpose, the tab order has been defined, so that those using the tab key keyboard can scroll through different menu items in a logical order.
For users who use automated screen readers, there are a number of shortcuts to different sections of each page, so that these users are not hearing all the navigation bar every time they change page. Another shortcut leads to this section of accessibility.
For content and structure, HTML 5 is used as markup language. For graphical presentation of them, cascading style sheets are used. (CSS). These layers are separating presentation and content, so disabling style sheets in your browser or screen reader does not affect the structure of the content. Relative sizes are also used in the provision of graphic elements and typography. As the text size can vary the option of each browser.
The guidelines of the Web Accessibility Initiative established three levels of accessibility: A, Double A (AA) and Triple A (AAA) depending on the degree of compliance with the priorities 1, 2 and 3 of these guidelines.
Currently, www.beciclon.com complies with Priority 3, level of accessibility AAA.
