What is digital accessibility?
An accessible website allows people with disabilities to access its content and functionality without difficulty.
For example, using an accessible site, you can:
- Browse with speech synthesis and/or a refreshable Braille display (used mainly by blind and visually impaired people).
- Customize the site’s display settings to suit your needs (increasing or reducing character size, changing colours, etc.).
- Navigate without using the mouse (with the keyboard only, via a touch screen, voice or any other suitable device).
To do this, the site must comply with the standards in force at the time when it is produced and updated.
EDF undertakes to make its internet, intranet, extranet sites and its mobile applications accessible in accordance with Article 47 of French Law No. 2005–102 of February 11, 2005.
To this end, it shall implement the following strategy and actions:
This accessibility declaration applies to the website https://uae.edf.com/.
The https://uae.edf.com/ website is partially compliant with the French General Accessibility Framework (RGAA), version 4.1, due to the nonconformities and derogations listed below.
Atalan’s compliance audit shows that 89% of the RGAA version 4.1 criteria are met.
Content not accessible
Details of nonconformities
- Criterion 3.1: "On every web page, the information should not be given by color alone. Is this rule observed?"
- Criterion 8.2: "For each web page, is the source code generated valid according to the specified document type?"
- Criterion 8.7: "On each web page, is each language change indicated in the source code (except in special cases)?"
- Criterion 9.1: "On each web page, is the information structured by the appropriate use of titles?"
- Criterion 9.3: "On each web page, is each list correctly structured?"
- Criterion 10.6: "On each web page, is every link whose nature is not obvious visible in relation to the surrounding text?"
The process of making the https://uae.edf.com/ website accessible continues to make progress, and some of the criteria invalidated during the audit have already been corrected since or will soon be corrected via technical and/or editorial work.
