This portal follows the guidelines of e-MAG (Accessibility Model in Electronic Government), according to the norms of the Federal Government, in compliance with Decree 5,296, dated 2.12.2004.
The term accessibility means including the person with disabilities in participating in activities such as the use of products, services and information. Some examples are buildings with wheelchair access ramps and bathrooms adapted for the disabled.
On the internet, accessibility mainly refers to the recommendations of the WCAG (World Content Accessibility Guide) of the W3C and in the case of the Brazilian Government to e-MAG (Accessibility Model in Electronic Government). E-MAG is in line with international recommendations, but sets standards for accessible behavior for government sites.
At the top of the portal there is an accessibility bar where you can find standard navigation shortcuts and the option to change the contrast. These tools are available on all portal pages.
The standard federal government shortcuts are:
- By pressing Alt + 1 on any page of the portal, you get directly to the beginning of the main content of the page.
- By pressing Alt + 2 on any portal page, you will get directly to the top of the main menu.
- By typing Alt + 3 on any page of the portal, you come directly into your inner quest.
- By pressing Alt + 4 on any page of the portal, you will get directly to the footer of the site.
These shortcuts are good for the Chrome browser, but there are some variations for other browsers.
Those who prefer to use Internet Explorer need to press the Enter button on their keyboard after one of the above combinations. Therefore, to get to the internal search field you must press Alt + 3 and then Enter.
In the case of Firefox, instead of Alt + number, simultaneously press Alt + Shift + number.
As Firefox in the Mac OS, instead of Alt + Shift + number, simultaneously press Ctrl + Alt + number.
In Opera, the keys are Shift + Escape + number. By typing only Shift + Escape, the user will find a window with all the ACCESSKEY alternatives on the page.
At the end of this text, you can download some files that better explain the term accessibility and how it should be implemented on Internet sites.
