Accessibility

What is accessibility?

Web accessibility refers to the ability to access a Web site and its content by as many people as possible, no matter what their navigation context or physical disability

By “navigation context” we mean devices, browsers, Internet connection speed, peripherals, browser or computer configuration, environmental conditions, etc. Whilst disabilities are understood to be visual, auditory, motor, or cognitive.

Declaration of commitment

CAF is firmly committed to the accessibility of its website and aims to ensure that the site contents are available to as many users as possible, regardless of their disability. With this aim in mind, the website uses the standard technologies established by the W3C and complies with the WAI 1.0 Accessibility Guidelines. The use of web standards established by the W3C, such as Transitional XHTML 1.0 for valid mark-up language and cascading style sheets (CSS) for the design, allow for the correct viewing of the website on a number of devices and platforms, and for the adequate printing of its contents. Should you have any questions, suggestions or problems regarding the accessibility of this website, please contact us by sending an e-mail to: caf@caf.net
