The Economic and Social Council of the Canary Islands has tried to fulfil web accessibility criteria, by developing an accessible design and content so that all users, regardless of their circumstances and browsing tools, can access all the information on our website.

The websites of Government Agencies have a duty to comply with the accessibility criteria set out in Regulation 139803:2012 of the Spanish Association for Standardization (UNE). This regulation establishes a series of features that every web portal must meet to be accessible, and also serves as the basis for the ICT Accessibility Certification (Web Accessibility) currently in force in Spain.

Likewise, the websites of Government Agencies must meet all priority 2 checkpoints (Double A level adequacy) defined in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines specification (WCAG 2.0) by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), by adapting it contents to these standards as far as possible and trying to provide a website without obstacles and easy access.

The website of the CES of the Canary Islands has been produced in accordance with HTML5 standards and CSS 3.0 style sheets. This website has been designed following responsive web design patterns so that the presentation of the information adjusts to the size of the device (mobile, tablet, laptop, etc.) used for browsing.

Some functionalities, e.g. the search engine, can only be used if JavaScript is enabled.

The technical issues that we have taken into account are as follows:


As far as possible, we have attempted to ensure that all on the website contain text that fully relates to the page to which they point.


We have also attempted to ensure that most of the images established with HTML code on our website have an alternative text, so that users who cannot view images can understand the contents of the image.

Page structure

Semantic structuring tags have been used in each of the pages to provide the website with a clear and robust content hierarchy through HTML header elements such as h1, h2, h3 and h4. Thus, some texts are given greater importance than others in order to clearly identify the most important of each of the contents in the different sections.

Accessible design and style sheets

One of the greatest advantages of our website is that it is designed using style sheets and accessibility guidelines, which not only provide benefits to the end user, but also in any subsequent maintenance, scalability and flexibility tasks.

A simple language has been used for the structure, effectively and clearly separating content from presentation, the latter being centrally managed in W3C-validated style sheets.

Solución de problemas

This website has been designed in accordance with current standards and regulations in relation to accessibility, for which reviews are carried out prior to the publication of all new content. However, you may still find a page that does comply fully with these standards, as some of the sections of the website are undergoing adaptation and improvement. If you have any difficulty accessing the information on this website, please contact CES. Realizaremos las mejoras necesarias a la mayor brevedad posible.
