Aeroporto di Bologna's site was designed and created in compliance with the control points set forth in art. 11 of the Stanca Act (Law no. 04/2004) and the WCAG 2.1 guidelines - for accessibility requirements with level "AA".
This choice is connected not only with the legal obligations, but also Aeroporto di Bologna's desire to allow all passengers to use its services, including digital.
The technical accessibility standards and relative checklist for the compliance check have been created on the basis of Principles, Guidelines and Success criteria outlined in the Recommendation that the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) - Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) published on 11 December 2008 and which contains the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.1).
The four main common founding principles of the WCAG 2.1 and of the present document are the following:
- Perceivable - Information and user interface components must be presented to users in ways they can be perceived through the different sensory channels.
- Operable - User interface components and navigation must be operable without any unreasonable inconvenience or restriction for the user.
- Understandable - Users must be able to understand the operation modes of the user interface and the actions contained in it necessary to obtain services and information.
- Robust - Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies.
The website was certified for most of the current browsers. Furthermore, for the automatic accessibility texts we constantly use online evolved tools which allow us to precisely and correctly maintain the website over time.
In addition to the guarantee of technical accessibility standards, we are engaged in activities targeted at ensuring quality standards. In cooperation with the Italian Union of the Blind and our site design and development partners, we carry out regular research sessions with blind and partially sighted people.
Despite the attention focussed on creating the site, the numerous tests conducted, and the continuous maintenance, we are fully aware that we cannot rule out, with any degree of certainty, that some pages may still, unbeknownst to us, be inaccessible or partially accessible to certain categories of users. The Aeroporto di Bologna's site currently complies with the majority of the provisions of the AGID accessibility guidelines, albeit with some exceptions, therefore falling under the Partially Compliant judgement, with the aim of achieving full compliance.
In such case, we apologise in advance and suggest you make reports about problems or difficulties in order to allow us to stop such inconvenience at once.
