The Commission wants everyone to have equal access to our website, whatever your ability.
- Visual, auditory, cognitive and other limitations
- Reading limitations (disability, literacy, non‑native language, etc.)
Redesigning our website has given us the opportunity to bring it in line with the Government of Québec’s web accessibility standards (French only). We aim to make our website more accessible to people with functional limitations, and specifically for people who access the web using technical devices or software like speech recognition, screen readers, braille displays.
In the winter of 2021, we will start usability testing, in partnership with the Confédération des organismes de personnes handicapées du Québec (COPHAN) and a variety of individuals with disabilities, to make sure that the information on our site is readily accessible to everyone. We will use the feedback from this testing to continuously improve our website’s accessibility.
Everyone should be able to:
- navigate our website without using a mouse
- distinguish among the colours we use
- understand all of our information
- use our website with ease
To make the web accessible to all people, whatever their hardware, software, network infrastructure, native language, culture, geographical location, or physical or mental ability.
