“Evolutionary Accessibility” Project


From Inclusive Study we are going to launch a project called “Evolutionary Accessibility” where we intend to demonstrate that the fulfillment of Universal accessibility in a web, is more a question of will than of economic resources. And also we will do it with our own web, to give an example 😉

Do not miss it, here we will publish each of the phases.

Proyecto MarJiSol


Good morning to all. I’m Marcos Jiménez Solsona, one of the partners of Estudio Inclusivo, and I have Asperger’s Syndrome. First I studied Computer Technician and Superior Technician in Image and Sound of Vocational Training, and now I am a Graduate in Fine Arts.

I am currently responsible for the universal accessibility of this website, but in this post I am going to talk about one of my other facets: the one of draftsman.

It is a comic book project called Floren, which narrates the adventures of the character of the same name, a boy of 5-6 years who lives adventures with his friends, family and neighborhood, and who is hopelessly secretly in love with Raquel, a former student trainee of teaching and current teacher of the school he attends. And to expand the largest possible audience have been introducing spin-offs featuring the father, brother or dog, etc.

 

 

Above, the current logo with the Floren character;
and below, one of the comics, with the old logo,
of the homonymous character.

Since I started the project in 2011 (first as an independent project and, later, as Final Degree Project and beyond), the whole pre-production process has been carried out (idea, synopsis, literary script, narrative, etc.) , production (placing drawings in vignettes) and postproduction (coloring, polishing details, hanging it on appropriate websites, etc.).

The truth is that, drawing this character, I managed to capture the reality I lived or still live, that is, it is a tribute to my life or life that I would have liked to see it in another way (thanks to art I can recreate certain situations). Therefore, as some examples, I have used some of the following themes for Floren:

  • The ideas of childhood.
  • The promotion of sports.
  • Friendship, loyalty, and relationships between the characters.
  • Current issues: social criticism, integration, etc.
  • Bullying.
  • Integration with other living beings: normally between the youngest of the family and a dog, as well as between himself and other children from his early age.
  • The sample of the father’s life in the workplace, family and social.

Photograph of Floren’s fanzines made so far

I have done 6 seasons (6 physical fanzines) of Floren so far and, in 2018, is in the process of making a 7th, in which 2 comic strips of 3 pages each were launched and whose first anticipated date of continuation will give rise to June 26 (or beyond if I do not arrive on time), both for San Juan and for the role of Spain in the 2018 World Cup.

You can follow Floren in the following link:

There you have more information about the character and the comics that I hang from him, etc.

You can also follow me on Proyecto MarJiSol‘s Facebook where I hang any news that comes up regarding Floren or other projects.

I hope you like it. Greetings to all!

Evolutionary Accessibility: Phase Zero

As we said, we are going to launch a project called “Evolutionary Accessibility” where we intend to demonstrate that the fulfillment of Universal accessibility in a web, is more a matter of will than of economic resources.

We have just launched the ZERO phase of the project. In this phase there is a design and clean code in a basic website with its sections:

 

Inicio-Home Page.
Quiénes somos-About Us. (Mission, vision, Values and Commitment) where the information of the company is collected.
-Service Page.
Accesibilidad PAU-Accesibility Page.
Noticias-News Page.
Trabajos-Works page, “portfolio”, where the works and the clients of the company are shown.
Contacto-Contact Form.

Is this an accessible website?

It is NOT accessible for people who use a screen reader, or for those who have severe visual, auditory and cognitive problems.

YES it is accessible for all those people with cognitive diversity due to age, functionality or ignorance of the language. Since the information is presented in a simple and clear design, with pictograms that facilitate understanding, with easy reading that eliminates language barriers. The contrast of the colors has been taken care of, the images must be clear and the videos can be stopped and activated at any time.

Accessibility Measures implemented in Phase Zero:

 

Logotipos y colores usados– Logos and colors used on the web, with enough contrast to facilitate reading for people with visual impairment

Lectura fácil– Texts written using Easy Reading techniques, for people with cognitive, language or compression problems.

Estructura de encabezados– Header structure consistent, hierarchical and orderly, to facilitate navigation, visualization with support tools such as screen readers and correct indexing in search engines.

Estructura de encabezados con pictogramas– Menus, titles and headings with Pictograms, to facilitate their rapid localization. as well as for people with cognitive, language or compression problems

Textos sin justificar-Text not justified, and with an adequate separation and line spacing to facilitate reading, either for people with dyslexia, visual or cognitive problems.

Navegación por teclado

– We have made a basic implementation of keyboard navigation, either by jumps between sections of the page, and with keyboard navigation by means of a tabulator.

With these measures, information is provided to a significant number of users who do not have severe diversities if they have difficulty accessing it.

Next phase

PHASE 1:

This will address the accessibility to comply with the WCAG2 standard with the AA level required by the UNE 139803 Standard in force since July 4, 2012.

These measures will facilitate access for all those people who need a screen reader to access telematic information, people with severe visual diversity.

In the next article we will tell you the measures that are adopted and why, so that together we can discover the evolution of accessibility in the world of information.

Our goal is to demonstrate that creating an accessible space to facilitate access to information for all people is a matter of will rather than resources. Accessibility can be progressively implemented from a basic page with minimal tools but that facilitate access to information to a very large number of people until they reach a much more complex page and can be accessed by those who wish, whatever their diversity.

We continue to see ourselves in this path of evolutionary accessibility, do not miss the next tools applied and their reasons. You will surely discover that improving the conditions so that everyone can access information is rewarding, and innovating involves learning and interacting with users. This transversally improves the positioning of the page in search engines or SEO, while improving the way of communicating by getting the message better, and more people.
