Accessibility refers to the ability of information technologies, such as websites and mobile applications, to provide services and usable informations without any discrimination, even towards those who, due to disabilities, require assistive technologies or further particular assistance.
The arrangements to facilitate and simplify the access of users to ITs are regulated with Law no. 4 of 9 January 2004 of the Italian Republic (reported below in translation)
Art.1 comma 1 – Law no. 4/2004
The Republic recognizes and protects the right of every person to access all sources of information and related services, including those that are articulated through IT and telematic tools.
Art.1 comma 2 – Law no. 4/2004
In particular, the right of access to the IT and telematic services of the public administration is protected and guaranteed, as well as to the structures and services open or provided to the public through the new systems and technologies of information and communication on the net and to the public utility by people with disabilities, in compliance with the principle of equality pursuant to Article 3 of the Constitution.
The contents of the INFN Padova Section website are presented, within the limits permitted by available technologies and technical limitations, following the most recent guidelines on accessibility in accordance with the principles of law and in the final aim of making the information accessible to anyone. The concept of usability indeed extends not only to people with disabilities, but to anyone who is unable either due to missing technological requirements (e.g. hardware or software) or for other reasons to be reached in a clear and intelligible way by the information.
