>Information on the accessible web
Thanks to the Internet, thousands of pages are available to anyone, anywhere in the world. But we are all people and not all of us have the same faculties.
Groups of individuals who have some kind of functional limitation cannot access the Internet in the same way. People with little or no sight, those whose
hand functions are limited, those who can feel little (or nothing) or those who have a reduced level of understanding are examples of this group: people with
disabilities. This is why instruments and tools have been created to adapt computers to their way of operating, structuring the contents so that they can
handle them. Websites cannot stand aside from this effort.
The World Wide Website Consortium (W3C), through a working group known as the
WAI (Website Accessibility Initiative), took up the challenge and set to work to "standardise" the
website design procedure to ensure accessibility.
The member states of the European Union took on, through the e-Europe Action Plan 2002, the commitment to adopt the WAI website design guidelines for public
At the IBIT Foundation, we wanted to make our contribution creating an accessible version of our website
according to the guidelines set by the WAI. To do this, we have based ourselves on XHTML 1.0 and CSS2 to achieve the
double A accessibility standard. We have also passed the
Ministry of Employment and Social Affairs Website Accessibility Test.
