Accessibility

This portal follows the guidelines of the eMAG (Electronic Government Accessibility Model), in accordance with the rules of the Federal Government, in compliance with Decree No. 5,296, of December 2, 2004link only in Portuguese language (BR).

The term accessibility means including the person with a disability in the participation of activities such as the use of products, services and information. Some examples are buildings with access ramps for wheelchairs and bathrooms adapted for the disabled.

On the internet, accessibility refers mainly to the recommendations of the WCAG (World Content Accessibility Guide) of the W3C and in the case of the Brazilian Government to the e-MAG (Accessibility Model in Electronic Government). The e-MAG is in line with international recommendations, but establishes standards of accessible behavior for government websites.

At the top of the portal there is an accessibility bar where you can find standard navigation shortcuts and the option to change the contrast. These tools are available on all portal pages.

ESG Cogna website accessibility bar shortcuts are:

  • By pressing Alt + 1 on any page of the portal, you will go directly to the beginning of the main content of the page;
  • By pressing Alt + 2 on any page of the portal, you will go directly to the main menu of the page;
