This page is a declaration of compliance with WCAG 2.1, which aims to establish the general level of accessibility found on the website in accordance with the regulations.
The declaration of conformity is considered valid for the current version of the General Accessibility Framework for Administrations (Référentiel général d'amélioration de l'accessibilité, RGAA) on the date it was made available online.
As soon as a new version of the RGAA is published, the statement linked to a previous version will no longer be valid.
. Administrations will then have 18 months to comply with the latest published version.
It should be noted that a declaration of conformity may be updated several times for the same website and the same version of the RGAA, in order to highlight accessibility measures and to update the level reached.
The declaration of conformity of the archives.brussels.be website was established on 01/04/2020
What is digital accessibility? ?
Digital accessibility means that people with disabilities can use, understand, browse and interact with the Web.
This includes persons who are blind and visually impaired, persons who are deaf and hard of hearing, persons with learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, motor limitations, speech limitations, photosensitivity and persons with a combination of these functional limitations.
Accessibility to the web can also benefit other individuals, such as older people whose capacities diminish with age.
Throughout the design, creation and maintenance stages, the owner of the Brussels archives website has ensured and continues to ensure compliance with best practices in terms of accessibility. We guarantee level A standards will be maintained; however, we have also integrated some level AA standards that we consider essential, such as :
- Text resizing : The text can be resized up to 200 per cent without the help of assistive technology and without loss of content or functionality.
- Browsing: Presence of at least two means of browsing. In addition to the main menu, we have provided a site map and a search field.
- Consistent browsing : For a set of pages, the browsing mechanisms that are repeated over multiple web pages appear in the same relative order each time they are repeated, unless a change is initiated by the user..
- Minimum contrast: Although the contrast is important to us in terms of accessibility, we have chosen not to respect this point, notably for design reasons. However, there are Google Chrome extensions that can improve this contrast. You can, for example, use this link and download the 'High Contrast' extension which makes it easier to read text and view image details.
