It is estimated that around 6 million people in France have a disability, and nearly 1/5 of the world’s population has a recognized type of handicap. The number of seniors likely to suffer from various disabilities is increasing rapidly.
In this perspective, particular care has been taken to make the Tara Ocean Foundation website accessible to as many people as possible, especially to people with visual disabilities. All of the site’s pages are currently compliant with W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) standards and are gradually being brought into compliance with the recommendations of the RGAA (Reference Document for the Improvement of Accessibility) and the WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative).
The accessibility recommendations taken into account are as follows:
- Use of textual equivalents to non-textual content (images, clickable areas, buttons, flash animations, forms, etc.)
- Content adaptable in different ways without loss of information or structure (information independent of visual formatting)
- Restitution of information regardless of its visual formatting (logical sequential order)
- Facilitated visual perception (color contrasts offering optimal reading comfort, simplified and airy layout)
- Usability with provision of avoidance links and keyboard navigation.
