This page aims to guide you in the use of the site but also to provide you with information about the accessibility of our portal.

Accessibility of the GATE website

Level of accessibility of the GATE site:

The International Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) defines Web accessibility as follows:

Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can use the Web. More specifically, that they can perceive, understand, navigate and interact with the Web, and that they can contribute on the Web. Web accessibility also benefits others, including seniors whose abilities change with age.
Web accessibility includes all disabilities that affect access to the Web, including visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive and neurological disabilities.

It is important to remember that under article 11 of the law of February 2005:

the disabled person is entitled to compensation for the consequences of his or her disability, regardless of the origin and nature of the disability, age or lifestyle.

As a result, each body has an obligation to take the necessary steps to provide access, within a reasonable time, to the information and functionalities sought by the disabled person, whether or not the content is subject to a derogation. The possibility of requesting accessible alternative content must be offered to the user on the help page via an accessible means of contact (email address or contact form).
