Regarding our website, accessibility is an important focus not least because of our obligation as a public organisation to comply with the Royal Decree 1112/2018 on accessibility of public sector websites and mobile apps  which transposes into Spanish law Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 October 2016 on the accessibility of the websites and mobile applications of public sector bodies  

The Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum regards technical developments and new technologies as opportunities to reach out to a broader public, offering equal opportunities regarding access to information. We have worked to make our online catalogue of works and artists into a digital library enriched with metadata, and strive to make it accessible to all members of the public.

Key principles of web accessibility:

  • Perceptible: non-textual content has an alternative description. HTML code is not used to format content and instead all graphic formatting of contents is made in CSS code. Aria-labels are used to describe sections, forms, menus and animated content, etc. Colour contrasts have been improved to facilitate the reading of texts and to ensure the correct identification of links.
  • Manageable: content can always be managed by using the keyboard and is not subject to a time limit for reading. This is extends to other elements too including image carousels, content in tabs and pop-ups. Key elements are highlighted graphically to facilitate their identification and our navigation menus, forms and drop-down elements have all been designed to be clearly identifiable.
  • Comprehensible: the language in which each piece of content is written is clearly shown. All forms are correctly labelled (each field has a description and the available shipping options are clearly stated). Any mistakes made in the filling-out of forms are clearly highlighted. All sections and text blocks have a title with Aria-label attributes or if this is not available and Aria-described by is used.
  • Robust: the layout of the webpage follows the latest HTML 5 and CSS3 trends, with a view to offer maximum compatibility with major browsers.
