The digital citizen participation platform Decidim Torrelles is committed to creating websites with universal design and accessible content, without visual or technological obstacles and for as many users as possible, thus bringing municipal communication and the use of new technologies to citizens.
To achieve this goal, it applies the standard WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) regulations adopted by the European Union. The purpose is for this platform to meet the AA level accessibility guidelines defined by the WAI standards (WCAG 2.0).
This means that both a person with some kind of disability, and anyone else who is in a circumstance that makes it difficult to access the information on the platform, will be able to access the content successfully.
The evolution of new information technologies, both in web and multi-device format, allows the content offered through the Internet channel to be increasingly accessible. Ajuntament de Torrelles, in line with its commitment to universal accessibility, has considered that the dissemination of information on web and multi-device accessibility is an important service for those users who need a guide to access without difficulty on their websites.
