The mobile website of the National Assembly of Québec adheres to web accessibility guidelines developed to ensure ease of access to website content and functions. The three government standards for web accessibility are provided below.
Since January 1, 2014, the National Assembly mobile website has met the requirements of the Standard for website accessibility (SGQRI 008-01) (French only).
The mobile website integrates the best practices of XHTML 1.0 markup language and Cascading Style Sheets, Level 2 (CSS2) recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), making it possible for disabled persons to access mobile website content using voice browsers, screen readers and braille displays.
In the coming months, work will begin in order to improve the mobile website’s compliance with the Standard for the accessibility of downloadable documents (SGQRI 008-02) (French only) and the Standard for the accessibility of website multimedia content (SGQR1-008-03) (French only).
The National Assembly of Québec cannot guarantee accessibility to the content of documents provided by third parties not subject to those standards.
