Web accessibility allows persons with a disability and individuals who cannot use a mouse to access information on websites. For example, blind individuals who use technical aids such as a refreshable Braille display and software such as screen-to-speech software can access informational content on Web pages. Mobility-impaired persons can also navigate easily on the Internet.
The Commission des normes du travail’s website is subject to three Québec government standards concerning Web accessibility, adopted on May 10, 2011:
The date of coming into force of each standard is different. For this reason, the Commission has initially focused on responding properly to the standard governing the accessibility of websites. Accordingly, a number of components of the website have been modified from the standpoint of visual presentation, navigation and information structure. However, the Commission will pursue its efforts in the coming months to meet within the stipulated deadlines the other two standards.
Below is a list of the icons found on the Commission's website to facilitate navigation.
