A Metro for all, also on the website
It could be an acronym for "Amo Los Transportes” (I Love Transport, in Spanish), but they are actually the beginning of the word ALTERNATIVE, and our photos include them because they have what is known as "alternative text"
13/06/2022 - This alternative text or ALT text describes all the elements of the images that illustrate our social media content and we include it so that visually impaired people can access them just like other users can.
For Metro, accessibility is essential, also in its digital content. That is why our website has a tool that guarantees accessible browsing and that, if you are a user, you have probably already seen.
It also has a "responsive" or adaptable design so that it is visible and accessible on all devices, and the Accessibility section occupies a prominent place among its contents.
Two versions of the metro map, one of the most consulted contents of this website, are available here. Specifically, one version with the metro lines in mp3 format and another with them in text format.
On the other hand, we also offer an easy-to-read Metro user guide on our website, in which we explain how to navigate the network in simple terms. It is adapted for people with intellectual disabilities or comprehension difficulties, but it is useful for any user.
We want our Metro to be accessible to all, including its digital content. We are working towards this goal, step by step and click by click, and we will continue to do so as long as there are still barriers to break down.
