Défi sportif AlterGo strives to make accessibility of the Web to as many people as possible, including those with functional limitations.
Accessibility of the Web is defined by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) as one of the components of digital accessibility: “Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can use it. More specifically, it means that these people can perceive, understand, navigate, interact with the Web, and contribute to it”.
The accessibility of the Web is the problem of access to online services and content not only for people with disabilities and the elderly, but also more generally for all users who do not have the comfort offered by a desktop computer located in a quiet room. Indeed, its application also concerns users with no functional limitations placed in less comfortable situations such as with a mobile phone, a tablet, etc. or placed in a particular situation of noise, display size, etc. Defined by technical standards established by the WAI of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), it requires treatment throughout the life cycle of a website, by all its stakeholders, via application methods, business standards and a monitoring process.
Conformity to the website accessibility standard
Défi sportif AlterGo asked its supplier to ensure that the website respects the Standard sur l’accessibilité d’un site Web (SGQRI 008-01) adopted by the Conseil du Trésor of the government of Québec. The standard SGQRI 008-01 sets out the rules allowing any website, public or intranet or extranet, to be accessible to facilitate its use by any person, disabled or not. When it went live, the site was accessible through the most recent versions of commonly used browsers. Improving accessibility is an ongoing process. Défi sportif AlterGo will continue to improve accessibility as it updates its website.
