What is accessibility?

Web accessibility indicates making it possible the greatest number of people to access the website and its content regardless of their user browsing context or disability. We understand browsing context to be devices, browsers, Internet connection speed, peripheries, browser or equipment configuration, environmental conditions, etc. Whilst by disability we are referring to visual, hearing, motor or cognitive deficiencies.

Commitment declaration

For all this we have developed a web site which guarantees accessibility to its contents by meeting the Accessibility Guidelines set by the WAI work group (Web Accessibility Initiative) belonging to W3C (Consortium for the World Wide Web).

The use of web standards set by the W3C, such as XHTML 1.0 Transitional for valid semantic marking and Cascade Style Sheets (CSS) for the design, allow users to visualise the website correctly in different devices and platforms as well as printing out its content appropriately.

If you have any questions, suggestions or problems relating to the accessibility of this website, please contact us at this email address:
