Guidelines for accessibility

Various measures have been taken to make the website more accessible, among them:

  • Logical order of presentation of elements on screen.
  • Simplified navigation system, drop-down menus are not used.
  • Descriptive text for images.
  • Access via keyboard to the main options.

Keyboard shortcuts

Most browsers support going directly to specific links by pressing certain key combinations (access keys) defined on the website.

For example, in Windows it works by pressing Alt+access key (in Internet Explorer you also need to press the enter key); in Macintosh, it works by pressing Ctrl+access key.

On our portal, the following access keys are available:

  • 0 Accessibility
  • 1 Home page
  • 2 Skip navigation
  • 3 Site map
  • 4 General search engine
  • 5 Go back
  • 6 Up
  • 8 Legal notice
  • 9 Contact

Links

Most links, whose text does not fully describe the destination, have title attributes with an explanation.

When possible, links are written to make sense out of context. Some browsers (such as JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx, and Opera) can extract a list of links on the current page and allow the user to navigate from this list. With this in mind, the links are not duplicated and, if they are, it is because they access the same content.

There re no JavaScript pseudo-links. All links can be followed in any browser, even if JavaScript is disabled.
