Accessibility statement -

What is accessibility?

A website is considered accessible when anyone is able to use and understand its content, regardless of their physical, psychological, or any other limitations; of the characteristics of their navigation equipment; or of the environmental conditions from which they access the web.

Worrying about the accessibility of a website means trying to break down the physical and social barriers that prevent many people from properly using the services and content offered through the web.

Since 2006, the websites of Spanish public administrations must be accessible by Law for people with disabilities and the elderly. The most recent and complete standard on accessibility is Royal Decree 1112/2018, of September 7, on the accessibility of websites and mobile applications of the public sector. Royal Decree 1112/2018 establishes the accessibility standard for websites as the recommendations of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), developed by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) working group and described in the documents WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines).

The commitment of IUMA to accessibility

At the Institute of Applied Microelectronics, we maintain a strong commitment to achieving complete integration of all members of the university community and society in general. One of our priorities is to allow universal access to the content published on its website. Our goal for the institutional website is to achieve a level of accessibility AA as specified in the guidelines of the WCAG documents. In general, the pages of the institutional website comply with the level of accessibility AA. In addition to complying with standards and following accessibility guidelines, we have designed the website for navigation to be simple for most users.

Some areas of the institutional website cannot guarantee complete accessibility, due to the disproportionate burden that would entail their updating (article 7 of Royal Decree 1112/2018). Some areas of the website contain complexity, volume, and diversity of applications that make it unfeasible to achieve full compliance with level AA with the resources available at IUMA. However, we strive to keep these pages at an acceptable level very close to the standard of the main website.

Accessibility technical data sheet

These are some technical specifications of criteria followed in the architecture of the institutional website of IUMA to comply with the desired level of accessibility.

  • Separation of content and presentation. The website has been designed using CSS3 style sheets, strictly separating content from visual presentation.
  • Page structure. The pages use semantic structuring tags. The 'H1' and 'H2' tags are used to locate the sections of each page. In pages served by the WordPress content manager, HTML5 tags such as 'header', 'footer', and 'nav' are used to distinguish the architectural elements of the page.
  • Accessible visual design. The visual design itself is conceived for an accessible experience for most users: font size, color contrast, size and location of clickable areas, etc. In case the person has visual or motor difficulties, they can resort to custom settings or specialized browsers, without the page structure hindering adaptation to special needs.
  • Links. Many of the links contain attributes that describe the link in more detail.
  • JavaScript. JavaScript is used strictly as needed to provide non-essential visual effects and functionalities unrelated to content, such as navigation tracking. In general, the basic content of a page can be obtained without the need to execute JavaScript.
