Web accessibility means that people with disabilities and those who cannot use a mouse to have access to the information contained on the Web. For example, blind people using technical devices (refreshable Braille display) and appropriate software (screen-to-speech software) can interpret the information contained on web pages. Web accessibility also makes Internet browsing easier for people with reduced mobility.
Some work has been undertaken in compliance with the Québec government standards on web accessibility , in particular the standard on the accessibility of a Web site (SGQRI 008 01) and the standard on the accessibility of a downloadable document (SGQRI 008 02) . The implementation of the modifications will be by phases.
Thus, efforts will be concentrated first on the accessibility of the informational Web pages. To make transactional Web pages accessible, a significant redesign of the applications will be necessary. It is therefore not possible at this time to indicate when these pages will comply with the accessibility standards. However, some elements of these pages may contain accessible elements.
Changes implemented to make this site accessible will be optimized for the use of the Internet Explorer Web browser.
