Accessible Aldesa comprehensive plan
The Accessible Aldesa comprehensive plan represents our business commitment to people with disabilities. It is a project that includes actions covering communication, training, awareness campaigns, product and service development, innovation and labour integration, aimed at this group in their capacity as clients, employees, shareholders, suppliers and members of our wider society.
The project's goal is to make Aldesa a fully accessible company in all its processes and to actively contribute to full equal opportunities for people with disabilities.
In this area, the Pomprehensive Plan of Aldesa, S.A. has the commitment to adapt the contents of the website www.aldesa.es so that all people, regardless of any disability, their age and even if accessing the website using unconventional technologies, can have a universal access to all the contents of this website, without encountering any difficulties regarding access. At the same time, Aldesa is incorporating the provisions set out in Act 56/2007, of 28 December, regarding Measures to Promote the Information Society. For this, the accessibility criteria entail complying with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0, at its double-A level, established by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium), the international association formed by different public and private organisations that work together to develop standards in order to encourage and promote best practices in web development. It is also adopting the regulations in force in Spain in this regard: Standard UNE 139803:2004 "Computer applications for people with disabilities: Web content accessibility requirements".
The adaptation of the pages is being carried out rigorously, from the most recent ones to the oldest ones, with the intention to eventually have a website with the greatest possible number of accessible documents. Some of the functions of www.aldesa.es to enable easier access to all contents of the website include:
- The visual characteristics of the web portal (typeface, font colour and background, etc.) are defined using the style sheet so that the user can adjust the text to their preferences.
- The font sizes have been defined with relative units so that the user can increase or decrease the size of the font from the web browser options.
- If a user accesses www.aldesa.es with a web browser that does not support the style sheet, it will not be a problem since all contents can be equally accessed with the style sheet (CSS) disabled.
- The pages have a clear structure, both for users who can see all the content and for users that read the information with a screen reader or for users that deactivate the style sheet, etc. The section headers, lists and all the elements that help the general understanding of the website have been defined using HTML code with this goal in mind.
- The HTML and CSS code used conform to the formal syntax in order to guarantee that the contents can be viewed correctly in different web browsers.
