Gateway S.C.S. accessibility policy

Introduction

gateway-scs.es has been specifically designed to allow anyone, at anytime, access to its information and services regardless of their technological or physical capabilities.

All aspects which make up the gateway-scs.es interface fit into the level Triple-A of the Web 1.0 Content Accesibility Guidelines (WCAG 1.0) created by the WAI Working Group from the W3C.

With strict adherence to these policies, Gateway S.C.S. tries to break down the social discrimination and barriers which might occur when new technologies are created and used.

Our ingenuity was recognised as we were chosen as one of three finalists for the T.4 category (Most accessible website for companies with under 50 employees) from the 3rd Annual T.A.W. website accessibility awards

Fast navigation (Keyboard shortcuts)

For our website, we have adopted the keyboard commands which are globally recognized as defined by the Web Handbook (Public Administration of the United Kingdom):

  • S - Skip Navigation
  • 1 - Home page
  • 3 - Site map
  • 8 - Legal notices
  • 9 - Contact
  • 0 - Accessibility

To enable you to navigate the main sections of gateway-scs.es using the keyboard, we have defined the following shortcuts:

  • e - Who we are
  • o - What we do
  • d - Products and services
  • c - Clients and projects

Accessibility

All the pages from gateway-scs.es have been verified to ensure that no automatically detectable errors exist at level Triple-A. To ensure this security we use the most sophisticated automatic verification systems available today:

  • T.A.W
  • H.E.R.A

Given that it is impossible to fully check all aspects of the system, Gateway S.C.S. has developed a constant process of manual revision of all aspects of the system to ensure that we achieve satisfactorily the level of conformance claimed. To demonstrate the validity of our techniques and expertise, we have been chosen as one of three finalists for the Third Annual T.A.W. Website accessibility awards.

  • Gateway S.C.S WAI-AAA WCAG 1.0

In this way, it has been approved that all web pages of gateway-scs.es pass the automatic verification of section 508 using the following tools:

  • Cynthia

Our agreement is to continue working on the improvement of gateway-scs.es. If you encounter any difficulties or have any suggestions that may help us develop further, contact us by any means. All are listed in the section Contact.
