By law the PhD in Software, Systems and Computing website must be accessible for people with disabilities. On this ground, every effort has been made to develop a highly accessible website so as not to discriminate against anybody. To do this, we have adhered to the following technical standards and guidelines:
- UNE 139803:2012 by AENOR: This standard, titled "Accessibility Requirements for Web Contents", sets out the requirements that contents available over the Internet and other types of computer networks have to meet for most people, including people with disabilities and older people, to be able to use them either unassisted or by means of the respective assistive technologies. It applies to any type of content available over computer networks, especially Web contents that are accessed using Internet browsers,independently how the content have been produced. Three priority levels are established for the points stipulated in the standard, and a website is considered to be accessible if it conforms to levels 1 and 2.
- WCAG 2.0 by W3C's WAI: The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines are recommendations published in 2008 by the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Accessibility Initiative. They set out the requirements for Web contents to be accessible for people with disabilities. The document is composed of 4 general guidelines, each composed of 12 checkpoints. These points are divided into three priority levels. Conformance with these levels is represented by letters A, AA and AAA (in ascending order of importance).
Graphical browser users will find the menu and Web site section on the top and the contents on the center of the screen.
This site is intended to be accessible for all. If you have any difficulty accessing any of its content, please cooperate and let the Webmaster know.
