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 elderly 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 computer programs called user agents (the most common of which are called web browsers), independently how the contents have been produced. Accessibility requirements for web contents are divided into three levels, and a site is considered to be accessible if it conforms to level A and AA requirements.
- WCAG 2.1 by W3C's WAI: The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines are recommendations published in 2018 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 four general principles, under which there are 12 guidelines, each composed of several success criteria. These success criteria are associated with three conformance levels represented by letters A, AA and AAA (which are increasingly demanding).
Graphical browser users will find the menu and Web site section at the top and the contents in the centre 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 contact the Webmaster.
