Meeting web standards
Hellenic American University believes the Internet should be easy-to-use for everyone, including those with disabilities. With this in mind, we have adopted a policy of accessibility and have designed this website to meet current web standards. We are doing this to ensure our sites are compliant and can be displayed by W3C standards compliant browsers.
The site conforms to the Web Accessibility Initiative of the World Wide Web Consortium, levels 1 and 2.
The website has been designed with these accessibility guidelines in mind:
- We make sure that navigation throughout the site works in a consistent way.
- We use a standard web font to make it easy for all to read. In most cases, the size of the font can be adjusted according to the users’ needs, using standard browser and operating system options.
- We never use color as the only way to convey information.
Hellenic American University has developed its own accessibility guidelines, which take into account standards and accessibility best practice from a number of sources.
