The online version of the Aeroporti di Roma site has been designed to maximise the usability and accessibility of web pages and guarantee access to information for all types of users. To achieve this goal, Aeroporti di Roma worked in two directions:

  • The realisation of the site according to legal standards
  • Implementation of content adaptive technologies.

Details on the results achieved are described in the following Web Accessibility Statement for Private Subjects.

Site realisation

The pages on this site comply with the guidelines set out in the Ministerial Decree of 8 July 2005 et seq. containing the 'Technical requirements and different levels for accessibility to IT tools' for the verification of the Stanca Law (Law 4 of 9/1/2004) indicating 'Provisions to facilitate access to IT tools for disabled persons'.

The study of accessibility includes a technical aspect related to how it is implemented (development code) and a part related to perception and comprehensibility. Checking these different aspects makes it possible to grade the level of accessibility of a site (according to the WAI W3C guidelines).



  • Site pages are created according to the HTML doctype.
  • No frames, java or flash objects are not accessible.
  • CSS style sheets were used to control the presentation of content.
  • Content is usable even without the use of CSS.
  • The colours were designed to ensure good contrast between the background and foreground colours.
  • Data tables are of simplified structure, without nesting.
  • For non-text objects on the page, a textual alternative is provided.
  • Links to the main sections of the site and links to other sites have a label identifying the target.


AccessiWay adaptive technology

We use an accessibility interface that adapts the site's functionality to personal needs. This website uses AccessiWay technology, which can adapt to the specific needs of each user by modifying the pages to make them accessible.

AccessiWay allows the Aeroporti di Roma site to be accessible for people with a wide range of needs due to their condition: blindness, visual impairment, cognitive impairment, motor impairment and epilepsy. 

Disability profiles supported on our site:

● Profile for Epileptics: This profile allows people with epilepsy to use the website safely, eliminating the risk of episodes resulting from flashing animations and risky colour combinations.

● Profile for the Visually Impaired: This profile adjusts the website, so it is accessible to most visual impairments such as impaired vision, peripheral vision problems, cataracts, glaucoma and others.

● Profile for Cognitive Disabilities: This profile provides assistance features to help users with cognitive disabilities, such as autism, dyslexia, CVA, and others, focus on the essential elements in a more fluid and accessible manner.

● Attention Disorder Profile (ADHD): This profile significantly reduces distractions and noise to help people with ADHD and neurodevelopmental disorders browse, read and focus on essentials more easily.

● Profile for the visually impaired (Screen-reader): this profile adjusts the website to make it compatible with screen readers such as JAWS, NVDA, Voiceover and Talkback. A screen reader is permanently installed on the computer of a blind user, and this site is compatible with this tool.

● Profile for Keyboard Navigation (Mobility Disabilities): This profile allows people with mobility difficulties to manage the website using the keyboard with the Tab, Shift+Tab and Enter keys. Users can also use shortcuts such as 'M' (menus), 'H' (headings), 'F' (shapes), 'B' (buttons), and 'G' (graphics) to get to specific elements.

Further adjustments to the user interface, design and easier reading:

● Font adjustment - users can increase and decrease font size, change font type, adjust the spacing, alignment, line height and more.

● Colour adjustment - users can select various colour contrast profiles such as light, dark, inverted and monochrome. In addition, users can exchange colour combinations of titles, texts and backgrounds with over 7 different colouring options.

● Animations - Users who have epilepsy can stop all running animations with a single click. Interface-controlled animations include videos, GIFs and flashing CSS transitions.

● Emphasising content - users can choose to emphasise important elements such as links and titles. They can also choose to highlight only focused or suspended elements.

● Audio mute - users with hearing aids may suffer from headaches or other problems due to automatic audio playback. This option allows users to mute the entire site instantly.

● Cognitive Disorders - We use a search engine linked to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, allowing people with cognitive disorders to search for the meanings of phrases, initials, slang, and others to understand the text more directly.

● Other functions - we allow users to change the colour and size of the cursor, use a print mode, activate a virtual keyboard and many other functions.
