Not all people access the web in the same way. Problems of hearing, vision or mobility, difficulties in using the mouse and / or keyboard, difficulties in connectivity, such as the use of text-only browsers, small screens, slow internet connection, etc. often an insurmountable obstacle when it comes to accessing the information the Network offers.
Implementation of accessibility guidelines
In order to facilitate navigation, this website, www.surginnova.com, has been developed following the guidelines established in the Web Accessibility Initiative, known as WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative), developed by the W3C.
A number of keyboard shortcuts have also been defined for the most important sections of the site that facilitate navigation in the case of people who have problems with or do not have pointing devices such as the mouse. For the same purpose a tab order has been defined, so that by using the keyboard tab key the different menu options can be traversed in a logical order.
For users who use screen readers, there are a number of shortcuts to the different sections of each page, so that users do not have to listen to the entire navigation bar every time they change pages. Another keyboard shortcut leads up to this accessibility section.
Independence of contents from design
For content and its structure it is used as HTML 5 tagging language. For the graphic presentation of the same cascading style sheets (CSS). In this way the presentation and content layers are separated, so that the deactivation of style sheets in the browser or screen reader does not affect the structure of the contents.
The guidelines of the Web Accessibility Initiative establish three levels of accessibility: A, Double A (AA) and Triple A (AAA) depending on the degree of compliance with priorities 1, 2 and 3 of these guidelines.
To analyze the accessibility of our site has been used the Web Accessibility Test (TAW), which is a tool developed by the Fundación CTIC for the analysis and information of the degree of accessibility of a website.
Currently www.surginnova.com meets priority 2 , level of accessibility Double A (AA).
