How we take care that all our users access our content seamlessly

What is accessibility?

Accessibility of a website means a combination of techniques and careful planning which make the site's content obtainable and usable by everyone, while attempting to eliminate obstacles of either a technological nature or for those with disabilities: outdated computers; different browsers and video resolution; visual, motor, or perceptive difficulties.

Our approach

We do our best so that the Telecom Italia site meets the needs of all users can easily find the information they are looking for.


The Accessibility of a web site is obtained technically by following the guidelines provided by W3C www.w3.org (World Wide Web Consortium), the worldwide consortium engaged in the standardisation of website design.

Our approach to accessibility, however, is not merely to seek formal certification, we aim to empower all our users to access the information they require in a complete and satisfactory manner.

Accessibility features

The size of the characters on the Telecom Italia website, in fact, can be modified by clicking "+" and "-" on the "Text Size" link at the top right of the page.

ALT tags on graphics

We have equipped all images on the site with an ALT tag which allows user-assist programmes used by users with disabilities (such as screen readers) to read a description of the image.

TITLE tags on links

Each link on the website - including a link to another site, link to open a pop-up window, or to download a file - has a text describing its function.
