Access Policy - Internet site
- The principle of a web site is to provide accessible content to each individual, whatever its material, software configuration, environment, physical and mental capabilities, and language may be.
- After having known unorganised development efforts over the years, the web is now characterised by more standardised and open concepts, thanks to standardisation.
Structure and presentation
- The page layouts were executed in CSS (cascading style sheets), which allow for uniform overall presentation of all of the site's pages.
- Users who de-activate the style sheets from their browser can have access to any information contained on the site.
- The pages are structured with "HTML semantic benchmarks"; that is, pages have a meaning compared to benchmarks that are only used for aspect/appearance.
- The site map is accessible from each web page.
- By clicking on the Vicat icon, located at the top left of your screen, you can return at any time to the home page of the site.
- The menu tabs reflect how information is structured.
- Navigation of the menus is possible by using the keys Tab and Maj + Tab.
Keyboard shortcuts (hot keys)
- It is possible to navigate the site without a mouse simply by using a combination of keys.
- The language of each page is specified with sufficient benchmarks.
- Links are accessible by using the Tab and Maj + Tab keys.
- Contiguous links are separated by printable characters in order to avoid any confusion caused by the help feature.
- Users can change the size of the font display by using the integrated tool in the pages, or with the help of the menus, or their browser shortcut keys.
- Any significant image has an alternative text when it has no explicit text.
- Page layout does not make use of invisible or hidden images.
- Texts with colours are also accessible when colour mode is de-activated and has assigned features (borders, underlining, bold, etc).
- Colour contrast in the back plan and front plan is sufficiently high for persons who are visually deficient; black and white display of pages is always possible.
- Tables are not used in the presentation of articles and other texts, as they are reserved for the layout of data.
