At Sapmarine Europe SL we have set as a priority objective that all people, regardless of their disability, age or the technology used, can browse our website without encountering access difficulties.

To this end, the development of the Sapmarine Europe SL website has been based on compliance with the Web 2.0 Content Accessibility Guidelines established by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium). These guidelines also form the core of standards such as ISO/IEC 40500 or UNE 139803:2012.

Some of the functionalities implemented to allow you to access all the contents of the Sapmarine Europe SL website more easily are:

  • The visual characteristics of the web page (font, font and background color, etc.) are defined by the stylesheet so that the user can adjust the text to his preferences.
  • Font sizes have been defined with relative units so that you can enlarge or reduce the font size from the browser options.
  • If a user accesses with a browser that does not support style sheets, it will not be a difficulty, since all contents can be accessed with CSS disabled.
  • The pages have a clear structure both for the user who can see all the content and for the user who reads the information using support systems such as a screen reader, users who deactivate the style sheet, etc. Under this objective, section headers, lists and all the elements that help the general understanding of the website have been defined by means of HTML code.
  • The HTML and CSS code used conforms to formal grammars to guarantee the correct visualization of the contents in different browsers.
  • The website is designed so that users can navigate in high contrast to distinguish between a link and a text that is not a link. With the exception of all those links that can be deduced from the context (menus, lists, etc.).
  • Include descriptive texts in the “ALT” attribute for all images on all pages.
