Europeana.eu features and content have been designed to be universally accessible by users and user agents/devices. We strive to meet the WC3 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Version 1.0.
Our User Centred Design team frequently conducts usability testing of Europeana.eu navigation, flow, labels, and consistency. Furthermore, we will produce a version – post this prototype phase – for blind individuals.
Some of the accessibility features of our site include:
- Meaningful page titles to help with orientation
- Almost all images have either a meaningful alt-text (text equivalent)
- Minimal use of frames
- Use of resizable fonts
- Use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to separate content from presentation
- Notifying a user when a link opens a new window
Please send us any feedback or questions on the accessibility of Europeana.eu with the feedback form.
