Accessibility | COnTic


The accessibility is the access to information without any limitation for impairment, disability or handicap. There are many people who come to the information in our pages from very different contexts to our own, because:

  • They may have trouble hearing, vision or mobility.
  • May experience difficulty reading or understanding.
  • Maybe they can't use the keyboard or mouse.
  • May have a text reader, a small screen or a slow connection.
  • and so on.

Accessibility is not only for people with disabilities, but also improves access to the web in general.

To this end, our accessibility guidelines are:

The Website of USE-IT tries to meet at least the level of AA or AAA for most of its contents that are defined by the rules WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Spanish legislation of UNE 139803:2004 from AENOR.
