The current online version of the ADR Assistance website dedicated to Passengers with Reduced Mobility (PRM) has been designed to improve the usability and accessibility of the web pages as much as possible. Ensuring access to information for the disabled is a legal obligation for airports and the basis for improving the quality of communication via the Internet.
The pages on this site comply with the guidelines issued by the CNIPA (National Centre for Information Technology in Public Administration) following the Stanca Law (Law 4 of 9/1/2004), which states, 'Provisions to facilitate access to IT tools for disabled persons'.
The normative references and standards followed are:
- CNIPA Guidelines
- W3C Accessibility Guidelines (WAI Project)
- ISO Accessibility Standards
The study of accessibility includes a technical aspect and a part of perception and comprehensibility. Checking these different aspects makes it possible to give a grade to the level of accessibility of a site (according to WAI guidelines).
From a technical point of view, the pages:
- are created in HTML
- are formatted using CSS style sheets
- do not contain frames, java objects or inaccessible flash
- have fixed font sizes
- are correctly navigable with assisted navigation tools.
Concerning the aspects of comprehensibility, usability and ease of navigation, an attempt has been made to standardise the structure of the site by keeping the main navigation at the top and the secondary navigation on the left while always trying to indicate where you are.
Sections of the site should give a clear division of content and allow well-targeted navigation.
At a glance, the new web pages of the site dedicated to Passengers with Reduced Mobility (PRM):
- are HTML validated
- ensure at least one level of accessibility verified by Lighthouse according to WCAG 2.1, Section 508, WAI-ARIA.
For any accessibility problems, page errors, suggestions or information, don't hesitate to contact the editorial centre responsible for managing the site.
AccessiWay adaptive technology
We use an accessibility interface that adapts the site's functionality to personal needs. This website uses AccessiWay technology to make it as accessible as possible at all times.
AccessiWay allows the Aeroporti di Roma site to be accessible for people with a wide range of needs due to their condition: blindness, visual impairment, cognitive impairment, motor impairment and epilepsy.
Disability profiles supported on our site:
● Profile for Epileptics: This profile allows people with epilepsy to use the website safely, eliminating the risk of episodes resulting from flashing animations and risky colour combinations.
● Profile for the Visually Impaired: This profile adjusts the website, so it is accessible to most visual impairments such as impaired vision, peripheral vision problems, cataracts, glaucoma and others.
● Profile for Cognitive Disabilities: This profile provides assistance features to help users with cognitive disabilities, such as autism, dyslexia, CVA, and others, focus on the essential elements in a more fluid and accessible manner.
● Attention Disorder Profile (ADHD): This profile significantly reduces distractions and noise to help people with ADHD and neurodevelopmental disorders browse, read and focus on essentials more easily.
● Profile for the visually impaired (Screen-reader): this profile adjusts the website to make it compatible with screen readers such as JAWS, NVDA, Voiceover and Talkback. A screen reader is permanently installed on the computer of a blind user, and this site is compatible with this tool.
● Profile for Keyboard Navigation (Mobility Disabilities): This profile allows people with mobility difficulties to manage the website using the keyboard with the Tab, Shift+Tab and Enter keys. Users can also use shortcuts such as 'M' (menus), 'H' (headings), 'F' (shapes), 'B' (buttons), and 'G' (graphics) to get to specific elements.
Further adjustments to the user interface, design and easier reading:
● Font adjustment - users can increase and decrease font size, change font type, adjust the spacing, alignment, line height and more.
● Colour adjustment - users can select various colour contrast profiles such as light, dark, inverted and monochrome. In addition, users can exchange colour combinations of titles, texts and backgrounds with over 7 different colouring options.
● Animations - Users who have epilepsy can stop all running animations with a single click. Interface-controlled animations include videos, GIFs and flashing CSS transitions.
● Emphasising content - users can choose to emphasise important elements such as links and titles. They can also choose to highlight only focused or suspended elements.
● Audio mute - users with hearing aids may suffer from headaches or other problems due to automatic audio playback. This option allows users to mute the entire site instantly.
● Cognitive Disorders - We use a search engine linked to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, allowing people with cognitive disorders to search for the meanings of phrases, initials, slang, and others to understand the text more directly.
● Other functions - we allow users to change the colour and size of the cursor, use a print mode, activate a virtual keyboard and many other functions.
