Accessibility Statement

Our principles

Fondazione LIA works to allow people with a visual or a print impairment to choose how, when and, above all, what to read, thus fostering social inclusion and active participation in the world of culture, school and work.

Our activities are driven by the “Born Accessible” principle, consisting in the creation of accessible contents since their first publication and distribution in the traditional trade channels. LIA was one of the main promoters of this concept, developed within the international network it’s a part of; the project Libri Italiani Accessibili, started in 2011, was its first concrete implementation at international level.

We encourage all the Italian and international realities we collaborate with, to adopt the same philosophy, by guiding them step by step along their path towards accessibility. We believe that with the collaboration of all the players of the publishing value chain we can build together a digital publishing ecosystem accessible for all.

Our website

Fondazione LIA’s website is developed following the Web Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AA, published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

The images on the website have alternative descriptions and You Tube videos added to our site are provided with subtitles.

On the website you can:

  • browse using the keyboard;
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen;
  • listen to most of the contents using a screen reader (including the latest versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver);
  • read the main content of the page directly, thanks to the “Go to the main content” link.

In some pages there are links to other websites that might not be fully accessible. In particular, in the following sections:

  • Press > Press Review;
  • Resources;
  • News.
