Accessibility statement

What is digital accessibility?

An accessible website is a site that allows all internet users to access its content with ease, including people who have a disability and use specialized software or hardware. For example, an accessible website allows users to:

  • Browse using synthesized speech (text-to-speech) or Braille displays (predominantly used by blind or visually impaired internet users).
  • Customize the website’s display according to individual needs (large print, modification of colors and contrasts).
  • Browse without a mouse, using the keyboard or a touch screen.
  • Etc.

To achieve this, the website must comply with strict standards for its design and updates.

Features offered by your browser

In addition to the help available directly on facil-iti.fr, the website has been designed in such a way as to allow your browser to take full advantage of its own features and functions.

Repeatedly pressing on these keys lets you increase or decrease the size of the characters bit by bit.

  • Mac users, all you have to do is replace the Ctrl key by the Cmd key in the combinations given above to perform the same actions.

  • Subtitles allow people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or quite simply people who cannot hear sound (no speakers, noisy environment, etc.) to still be able to access the audio information conveyed in the video. They are also often useful for people for whom French is not their native language, who are generally grateful to have both sound and textual support to help them understand.

Like, for example, text displayed on the screen, situations that can only be understood when one sees the images, etc. Audio description is useful for people who are blind or hard of hearing. It can also be a source of comfort for people who want to play the video without keeping their eyes on it.
