This portal follows the guidelines of the e-MAG (Accessibility Model in Electronic Government), according to the rules of the Federal Government, in compliance with Decree 5.296, of 2.12.2004.
The term accessibility means including the person with a disability in participation in activities such as the use of products, services and information. Some examples are buildings with ramps for wheelchair access and bathrooms adapted for the disabled.
On the internet, accessibility refers mainly to the recommendations of the WAGC World Content Accessibility Guide (WCAG) and in the case of the Brazilian Government to e-MAG (Electronic Government Accessibility Model). E-MAG is in line with international recommendations, but sets standards of behavior accessible to government websites.
At the top of the portal there is an accessibility bar where you can find standardized navigation shortcuts and the option to change the contrast. These tools are available on all pages of the portal.
The standard shortcuts of the federal government 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 page of the portal, you get directly to the beginning of the main menu.
- By pressing Alt + 3 on any page of the portal, you can directly reach your internal search.
- By pressing Alt + 4 on any page of the portal, you get directly to the bottom of the site.
These shortcuts are valid for the Chrome browser, but there are some variations for other browsers.
Those who prefer to use Internet Explorer must press the Enter button on their keyboard after one of the combinations above. Therefore, to reach the internal search field, press Alt + 3 and then Enter.
In the case of Firefox, instead of Alt + number, simultaneously press Alt + Shift + number.
Being Firefox on Mac OS, instead of Alt + Shift + number, simultaneously press Ctrl + Alt + number.
In Opera, the keys are Shift + Escape + number. By pressing 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.
