Accessibility

Web accessibility means that people with disabilities and those who are unable to use a mouse can access web content. For instance, blind persons using technical devices (refreshable Braille display) and software (screen-to-speech software) can understand the informational content of web pages. It also makes web browsing easier for persons with reduced mobility.

Compliance

In compliance with the Québec government standards for web accessibility Link to a new window., this site applies the transitional measures for existing websites. Due to the current structure of the Publications du Québec website, it is not possible to apply the standards in their entirety; a complete redesign of the site is necessary (as defined in the fourth paragraph of section 25 of standard SGQRI 008-01).

The objective of Les Publications du Québec is to make their website entirely accessible at the time of the next redesign.
