Websites in compliance with accessibility standards

The portal is designed with regard to health disabilities of its users (with regard to visual and hearing impairments, cognitive disabilities and motor mobility), experience with the Internet, technical facilities (for users who can not use a mouse, monochromatic monitor or the content is interpreted by a screen reader) and software (use of other operation systems or internet browsers).

The portal meets all important principles of accessibility according to the Blind Friendly Web methodology (the United Organization of the Visually Impaired and the Blind Project), WCAG 1.0, and Rules of creating accessible web pages prepared as a guideline for the amendment of the Act No. 365/2000 Coll., on the Information Systems of Public Administration.
