New-look EEA website improves accessibility

Released on 2006-09-06

EEA aims to provide timely, information to a wide range of target groups. The re-launched website will help achieve this goal by offering a better quality service to more people.

For example, the website is now compatible with “screen readers” used by people with visual disabilities. Text sizes can be also be enlarged manually to enhance readability.

The new-look website is also accessible from mobile devices, such as mobile phones and PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants).

Designed in line with EU guidelines on eAccessibility, the EEA website is one of the first from an EU body that complies with international accessibility standards.

The role-out of the new website design is a gradual process that will continue for the coming weeks.
