ACCESSIBILITY

Accessibility

Definition

“To make the Web and its services available to all individuals, regardless of their hardware or software, their network infrastructure, their mother tongue, their culture, their geographical location, or their physical or mental aptitudes.”

Extract of the definition of accessibility as adopted by the World Wide Web Consortium

Accessibility: a global process

Accessibility does not stop at an acknowledgement of disabled users. This is an overall process linked to the site’s ergonomics and dealt with upstream from site design onwards. Accessibility is also a specific approach: that of simplicity. We wanted our site to be simple to use and simple to understand by all.

To do so, we complied with the “accessibility” standards. Here are some of the advantages:
  • site content is logical and structured,
  • pages are generally 30 to 80% faster to load,
  • the site is web browser-independent.

Accessibility policy of the GeoPost site

In keeping with its values and those of the La Poste group, GeoPost makes its content accessible:
  • Pages are organised to “work” even if your browser does not support Javascript.
  • Character font sizes are relative, so they can be enlarged or reduced using options available on your browser.
  • All images have a text-based alternative.
  • The site’s page layout is organised via a style sheet, so information structure is maintained.
  • The site uses an external style sheet which means users may substitute it for their own style sheet.
We constantly try to maintain the website to its maximum level of accessibility but also to always improve it.
We do hope that we are thus able to share information with our readers with the least loss possible.

For your information

In Europe over the past 10 years, the European Commission has financed several web accessibility projects and in so doing, it is able to respond to the needs and expectations of disabled people through various programmes.
