JALLC website Accessibility

"The power of the Web is in its universality.
Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect."

- Tim Berners-Lee - W3C Director and inventor of the World Wide Web.

Our contribution to a web without barriers

The Joint Analysis & Lessons Learned Centre (JALLC) website was developed in accordance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 ( WCAG 2.0) of the World Wide Web Consortium Web Accessibility Initiative (W3C WAI).

The JALLC is committed to creating and maintaining an accessible website by removing barriers for people with disabilities. By meeting the WCAG we try to ensure that all visitors to the JALLC website will be able to access all contents regardless of disability or other special needs.

The structure of all pages is provided by the HyperText Markup Language 5 (XHTM5) and all layouts (visual and graphics) through Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Level 3. To minimize any possible error, and maximize accessibility, this website does not use JavaScript in any functionality.

The JALLC initial goal was to comply with Level Double-A (AA) but due to the nature of the website, mostly non-transactional, we were actually able to achieve axceed expectations and Level Triple-A (AAA) on both WCAG 1.0 and WCAG 2.0.

Any changes to the website contents or structure are subject to validation against W3C CSS Standards and WCAG (1.0 and 2.0) in order to keep our high standards. To perform validation we use a combination of online and offline tools (see disclaimer), the AccessMonitor (PRT), the Achecker (CAN), the TAW (ESP), and the Total Validator but there are others available on the W3C Complete List of Web Accessibility Evaluation Tools.

By implementing the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Accessible websites benefit from Search Engine Optimization ( SEO). An accessible website is easier to index by the search engines increasing their rank and the probability of being at the top of the results page and consequently contributing to better visibility on the web.
