Accessibility

The Ministry of Universities, in line with its commitment to favor the integration of people with disabilities, including people with physical or cognitive disabilities, and regardless of the technological devices used to access information, has worked in accordance with the Accessibility Guidelines defined by the permanent working group Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), of the Consortium for the World Wide Web (W3C), to comply with the AA level included in the WCAG 2.1 guidelines

The page has been developed using XHTML (eXtensible Hypertext Markup Language) and style sheets, complying as far as possible with the XHTML 1.0 and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) validations of the W3C. Among the main measures adopted to guarantee accessibility are the following:

Text size. The fonts used have relative dimensions, so that the user can control their size from the browser they are using. Design, navigation and interactivity. We have tried to achieve a coherent navigation throughout the website, following the same structural schemes on all pages. Keyboard shortcuts. A series of keyboard shortcuts have been established to access the navigation menu options as well as the links found at the bottom of the page. These shortcuts vary depending on the browser used: With Internet Explorer 5 and higher you must press alt, the shortcut key and then the enter key. With Mozilla and Netscape you must press alt and the corresponding shortcut key. With Firefox for PC environment you must press alt plus the shift key plus the shortcut key. With Opera for PC environment you must press capital letters plus the escape key plus the shortcut key.
