What is digital accessibility?
An accessible website is a site that allows all users to access its content without difficulty, including people with disabilities and using assistive technologies. An accessible site allows for example to:
- navigate with voice syntheses or Braille tracks (especially used by blind or partially sighted users);
- customize the display of the site according to your needs (magnification of characters, modification of colors, etc.);
- navigate without mouse, with the keyboard only or via a touch screen;
To do this, the site must meet rigorous standards in its design and updates.
Website accessibility policy
The website www.eramet.com is designed, developed and maintained in accordance with recognized and current accessibility guidelines and standards. To date, these are the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 at level A.
- It is possible to navigate the entire site using the keyboard, without the mouse.
- The information is readable up to 200% larger than the text size.
- The structure of the HTML code and semantics ensures proper consultation with technical aids such as screen readers.
Although Eramet's objective is the A level of WCAG 2.1, Insign agency also wanted to apply success criteria at the AA and AAA levels. For example, by not justifying the text, by not using texts in the form of images, etc.
Finally, the accessibility was checked by an independent and expert company, which is not involved in the design and development of the website. This audit was conducted by Atalan in May 2019, and all non-conformities identified were corrected by Insign teams.
