  • accessibility

    The pages on this Web site have been designed and built according to the guidelines of the CNIPA (National Computer Centre for Public Administration) following the passing of the Stanca Law (Law n.4/Jan/04) describing "How to ease access to computer facilities for the disabled".

    The standards and regulations observed are:

    • Guidelines describing technical requisites for accessibility (law 4/2004, art. 11 comma a and b).
    • Guidelines for W3C accessibility (WAI Project).
    All pages were built following XHTML 1.0 specifications with DTD Strict. All elements and attributes have been applied in accordance to published specifications.

    All pages were validated with the W3C (http://validator.w3.org), and the WDG (http://www.htmlhelp.com/tools/validator) Validators as verification of compliance to the W3C published formal grammars.

    The pages on this site are not built on frames.

    Every non-text item present carries a corresponding and equivalent text alternative (ALT attribute). Each author verified the logical correctness of each description input.

    Information items are available even if the colour used for the presentation is absent.

    The site does not use flashing/moving objects or text such as may cause photosensitive epilepsy attacks, concentration problems or such as may cause the malfunctioning of applied assistance technologies.

    All information contents are always distinguishable from the background by using colour contrast. The contrast was also checked with the use of tools available in the Web, such as Juicy's Colour Contrast http://www.juicystudio.com/services/colourcontrast.asp)

    Contents are presented by means of style-sheets, and the pages are organised so that they may be read even if the style-sheets are disabled or not supported.

    The pages' presentation and contents adapt automatically to the size of the window without overlapping present items or loss of information that would render the page incomprehensible, no matter how the window and/or characters are changed in respect to the original parameters.

    No tables were used in the layout.

    The destination of each hypertext link is very clear, thanks to the use of text that is meaningful and explicit even when read out of context.

    In order to make it easier to select and activate links, the vertical distance for link lists and the horizontal spacing between consecutive links has been set to at least 1 em.

    Furthermore:
    • any foreign-language term that is unclear when read out in English has been marked with a language-change label (for screen readers).
    • The Acronym tag has been used for written-out description of some acronyms.

    In spite of the care taken in the building of this site and of the numerous tests run, we cannot rule out the possibility that one or more pages may still be inaccessible to some type of user without our being aware of it. Should this be the case we apologise in advance and we beg you to let us know of any irregularity or difficulty found so that we may get rid of it in the shortest possible time.
