What is digital accessibility?

A digitally accessible website is a site that allows people with disabilities to access its content and features without difficulty.

An accessible website allows, for example, the following:

  • Navigation using screen readers and/or braille displays (especially used by blind and visually impaired individuals).
  • Customization of the site’s display according to individual needs (enlarging or reducing font size, modifying colors, etc.).
  • Navigation without using a mouse (using only the keyboard, via a touch screen, voice control, or any other adapted device).

To achieve this, the website must adhere to the applicable standards during its development and updates.
