Affixing the Web Accessibility Symbol

The Web Accessibility Symbol does not guarantee that this site is 100% accessible.

Use of this symbol only demonstrates an effort to increase the site’s Mpa accessibility in accordance with Council of Ministers’ Resolution 155/07 on the accessibility of the public administration’s sites on the Internet for citizens having special needs.

Accessibility international standards

From the accessibility standpoint, the Portal’s structure meets a high level of international standards, including:

  • For all images, provide alternative text that describes the function of the graphic;
  • Scripts that make a visitor’s screen reader or browser uncontrollable are a big impediment to accessibility. When I include applets or scripts, I provide a text description and a no-Java option; and
  • on organizing, writing and formating text, I presents a list of links that appear on separate lines, insert non-linking text on each line, to facilitate frame indentification and use of navigation technologies.
