The aim Grupo Siro is that every individual, irrespective of disability, age or unconventional technologies used to access the website, will be able to browse the pages of this site without facing any barriers to access.

The functionalities implemented on the website to provide greater ease of access to all content include:

  • The visual characteristics of the portal (font, colour and background, etc.) are defined by means of the stylesheet, allowing users to adjust the text to their preferences.
  • Font sizes have been defined with relative units, allowing the font size to be increased or reduced using the browser options.
  • If a user accesses the portal with a browser which does not support stylesheets this will not cause any difficulty, as all content can likewise be accessed with the CSS disabled.
  • The pages have a clear structure both in order to allow users to view all content, and to allow the information to be read by a screen reader, users who have disabled the stylesheet, etc. In accordance with this objective, HTML code has been used to define the section headers, lists and all elements assisting in an overall understanding of the website.
  • The HTML and CSS code employed complies with formal grammars in order to guarantee the proper display of content in different browsers.
