Anyone has the right to access the information and services offered by the website without sensory, motor, cognitive or technological restrictions. The content and web services of public administrations must be especially sensitive to this right, eliminating or minimizing all possible access barriers.

The portal of the Faculty of Humanities has assumed this commitment since its genesis. To achieve this objective, we adhere to the WAI (Web accessibility Initiative) defined guidelines belonging to the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium). These guidelines have been adopted by the European Union and are the mandatory reference in Spain. This is of vital importance to favor access to the content of the website to the maximum number of people and in the greatest number of situations possible.

This portal, therefore, has been designed so that the content can be easily converted to other formats and to make it understandable and navigable. This means that both a person with some type of decrease and any other who is in a circumstance that makes it difficult for them to access the information on a web page can access the contents successfully.

Other accessibility features include being able to change the size of the text to the one that is most convenient, or being able to deactivate the predefined design of the website so that the contents are seen more clearly. For non-visual navigation, it is also possible to use screen readers in an understandable and comfortable way.

To facilitate navigation, the following shortcut keys have been used:

  • S key: Go to the main content of the page.   
  • Key 1: Start.
  • Key 3: Web map.
