Accessibility Policy

Sociedad Mercantil Estatal para la Gestión de la Innovación y las Tecnologías Turísticas (SEGITTUR) aims to ensure that its website is accessible for all citizens, including individuals with physical or cognitive disabilities, regardless of the technical devices used to access the information.

In its undertaking to comply with these objectives, the SEGITTUR website has been designed to comply as far as possible with the UNE 139803 double A (AA) standard, published in December 2004 by AENOR.

Law 56/2007, of 28 December, on Measures to Promote the Information Society, stipulates that public administrations shall adopt the necessary measures to ensure that the information available on their respective websites is accessible, in accordance with the content accessibility criteria established in Royal Decree 1494/2007, of 12 November (Regulation on the Basic Conditions for Access by People with Disabilities to Technologies, Products and Services related to the Information Society and Social Media).

This Royal Decree specifies the degree of accessibility applicable to Internet pages managed by public bodies with a minimum obligatory level of compliance of priorities 1 and 2 of the UNE standard described above.

The portal has been developed using XHTML and stylesheets, complying as far as possible with the XHTML 1.0 and CSS2 validations of the W3C.

The following are most important measures adopted to guarantee accessibility:

Text size. The fonts used have relative dimensions so users can control their size from their browser.

Design, browsing and interactivity. Attempts have been made to achieve consistent browsing throughout the whole website, following the same structural patterns on all pages.

Keyboard shortcuts. A number of keyboard shortcuts have been established for accessing the navigation menu options as well as the links in the footer. These shortcuts vary depending on the browser used:

  • In Internet Explorer, you have to press alt, the shortcut key and then the enter key.
  • In Mozilla and Netscape, you have to press alt and the corresponding shortcut key.

Accessibility Exceptions on the Website

As mentioned above, the pages have been designed following the validations established by the W3C. However, some pages may contain elements that cause a failure in these validations owing to their contents having been produced with a content management tool.

The sIFR technique has been used in the text of the introductory headers to allow the use of specific type faces.

The forms currently used on the website are validated in client side. Work is being done to enable server-side validation
