Accessibility means access to information without limitation due to impairment, disability or handicap. Many people come to our pages from very different contexts from ours, since ...

  • They may have trouble hearing, or seeing or with mobility 
  • They may have difficulty reading or understanding 
  • Maybe they cannot use the keyboard or mouse 
  • They may have a text-only browser, a small screen or a slow connection 
  • Etc. 

Accessibility is not only of interest to people with disabilities but also improves the general access to the web. To that end, our accessibility guidelines are:

  • We comply with the WCAG standards (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) protocol WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative), its level A and parts of the AA and AAA. These rules are applicable worldwide and are officially recognized as an Internet standard by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium). 
  • The verification of compliance with these guidelines is done through the Web Accessibility Test (TAW). This is a tool promoted by the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs in accordance with the provisions of the Law of Services for the Information Society and Electronic Commerce. 

We are aware that the accessibility of this website can be improved and that is what we are working towards. We invite you to help us in this effort by sending us your feedback.
