New-look EEA website improves accessibility
New design for the EEA web site
For example, the website is now compatible with “screen readers” used by people with visual disabilities. Text sizes can be also be enlarged manually to enhance readability.
The new-look website is also accessible from mobile devices, such as mobile phones and PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants).
Designed in line with EU guidelines on eAccessibility, the EEA website is one of the first from an EU body that complies with international accessibility standards.
The role-out of the new website design is a gradual process that will continue for the coming weeks.
