"Putting the internet and its services at the disposal of all individuals, whatever their hardware or software requirements, their network infrastructure, their native language, their cultural background, their geographic location, or their physical or mental aptitudes."
(From the World Wide Web Consortium’s definition of accessibility)
La Poste’s new international mail websites reflect the company’s commitment to accessibility for the handicapped and aim to maximise access to information while improving the quality of current and upcoming services.
The main players involved in implementing accessibility, including the association BrailleNet and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), contributed to accessibility guidelines published by ADAE (the French Agency for Information and Communication Technologies In Public Services).
Following an audit from the organization BrailleNet, the French language sites of “La Poste, the international mail solution” earned the label “AccessiWeb” Silver Level, emphasizing “a high level of accessibility.” These sites also fulfilled a significant number of the criteria for the Gold Level.
Our commitment to accessibility applies to our clients worldwide and therefore, all pages were developed to conform to Silver Level criteria. In this regard, the AA Label applies to our foreign-language web sites.
Our approach is based in continuity, dialogue, and the sharing of ideas. We invite you to share your suggestions with us or to indicate any problems with site accessibility.
