Accessibility

   

What is accessibility?

An accessible website is a site that enables all Internet users to access its content without difficulty, including people who are handicapped and use special browsers.

An accessible website provides the following, for example:

  • Navigation with specialised tools used by visually-handicapped Internet users (voice synthesis and Braille displays);
  • A website layout specially adapted to the needs of partially-sighted Internet users (an enlarged font, and modified colours and contrasts);
  • Navigation without using the mouse, for Internet users who have lost the use of their hands.

For this, the website must obey strict rules when it is designed and updated.
