Agronomy- CPCS follows a new federal government standard digital identity model, which meets the main web accessibility recommendations.

The term accessibility means including people with disabilities in participating in activities such as the use of products, services and information. Examples are buildings with wheelchair access ramps and disabled toilets.

On the internet, accessibility refers mainly to the recommendations of the W3C World Content Accessibility Guide (WCAG) and in the case of the Brazilian Government to the e-MAG (Electronic Government Accessibility Model). The e-MAG is in line with international recommendations, but sets standards of accessible behavior for government websites.

At the top of Portal Brasil 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 federal government shortcut patterns are:

Pressing Alt + 1 on any portal page brings you directly to the beginning of the home page content.

Pressing Alt + 2 on any portal page brings you directly to the top of the main menu.

Pressing Alt + 3 on any portal page, you arrive directly at your internal search.

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.

On Opera, the keys are Shift + Escape + Number. By pressing Shift + Escape only, the user will find a window with all page ACCESSKEY alternatives.

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.
