Accessibility to Site
A page or web site is accessible when it is designed and programmed so that their contents and services are available for any person, independently of the system of navigation. For this, the CNIO Web has followed the directives of accessibility of initiative WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative), along with the fulfilment of the standards defined by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium).
The majority of the browsers support to go directly to specific links touching certain key combinations.
Next the keys used in this site are defined:
- Key 0
- Accessibility information (current page)
- Key 1
- Home page
- Key 2
- Key 3
- Site map
- Key 4
- Change the language of the page
In Windows and Linux operative systems it works touching ALT + Key (or ALT + SHIFT + Key); in Macintosh touching CTRL + Key. Some navigators (such as Mozilla or firefox) follow the link automatically; others (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer) utilize the pointer and the user needs to press the Enter key to continue.
