Accessibility declaration

IZAC commitments

In order to offer the best possible experience to all its users, IZAC makes the navigation of its site accessible to people with disabilities.
This constant optimisation process is part of the group's general policy in favour of diversity.
To support us in this digital transformation, we have joined forces with Accessiway. Visit the Accessiway website

We firmly believe that the web should be available and accessible to all, and we are committed to providing a website that is accessible to as many people as possible, regardless of their circumstances and abilities.

We want to be part of this long-term approach to citizenship and solidarity. We are committed to ensuring that our site will be able to achieve an accessibility rate in the years to come that will enable us to comply or partially comply with the RGAA 4.1 regulations.

As of 17/11/2022, the site has a compliance rate of 63.85% with the RGAA 4.1.

What is digital accessibility?

Digital accessibility means that people with disabilities can use the web. More specifically, that they can perceive, understand, navigate and interact with the web, and that they can contribute to the web.
Digital accessibility also benefits others, including older people whose abilities change with age. Web accessibility includes all disabilities that affect access, whether visual, cognitive or motor.

An accessible website allows, for example:
● navigate with a voice synthesis and/or a Braille display (notably used by blind and partially sighted people) ;
● customise the display of the site according to their needs (enlarging the characters, changing the colours, etc.);
● navigate without using the mouse (with the keyboard only, via a touch screen, by voice or any other adapted device).

To do this, the site must comply with the standards in force when it is created and updated.

IZAC undertakes to make its internet, intranet and extranet sites and its software packages accessible in accordance with article 47 of law n°2005-102 of 11 February 2005.

AccessiWay navigation aid

AccessiWay improves the accessibility of sites for users with a wide range of disabilities (blind and visually impaired, people with cognitive disorders, motor disorders, epilepsy, etc.), in full compliance with WCAG 2.1, European and French regulations (RGAA 4.1).
To achieve this, Accessiway combines digital accessibility consulting services with an application based on artificial intelligence that runs in the background to constantly optimise its level of accessibility.

Notable improvements include:

● Navigation with screen reader and keyboard:
○ Implementation of the ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) attribute technique, as well as various behavioural modifications, to ensure that blind users who visit the site with screen readers can read, understand and enjoy the full functionality of the site.

● Optimisation of keyboard navigation:
○ The background process also adjusts the website's HTML code and adds various behaviours using JavaScript code to make the website keyboard friendly. For example, it is possible to navigate the site using the Tab and Shift+Tab keys, use drop-down lists with the arrow keys, close them with Esc, and trigger buttons and links with the enter key.

● Activatable profiles:
○ Safety profile for epilepsy: this profile allows people with epilepsy to use the website safely by eliminating the risk of seizures resulting from flashing animations and risky colour combinations.
Profile for the visually impaired: This profile adapts the website to be accessible to the majority of visual impairments such as impaired vision, tunnel vision, cataracts, glaucoma, etc.

Cognitive disability profile: this profile provides various assistive features to help users with cognitive disabilities such as autism, dyslexia, stroke, and others to focus more easily on the essentials.
○ ADHD Friendly Profile: this profile dramatically reduces distractions and noise to help people with ADHD and neurodevelopmental disabilities navigate, read, and focus on essentials more easily.
○ Blind User Profile (screen readers): this profile adapts the website to be compatible with screen readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver and TalkBack.

● Additional user interface, design and readability adjustments:
○ Font adjustments: users can increase and decrease its size, change its family (type), adjust spacing, alignment, line height, etc.
Colour adjustments: users can select different colour contrast profiles such as light, dark, reverse and monochrome. In addition, users can swap colour schemes of titles, texts and backgrounds, with more different colouring options.
Animations: Users with epilepsy can stop all running animations by clicking a button. Interface-controlled animations include videos, GIFs and flashing CSS transitions.
○ Content highlighting: users can choose to highlight important elements such as links and titles. They can also choose to highlight only targeted or hovered elements.
Mute Audio: Users with hearing aids may experience headaches or other problems with automatic audio playback. This option allows users to instantly mute the entire website.
○ Cognitive Impairment: Accessiway uses a search engine linked to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, allowing people with cognitive disabilities to decipher the meaning of phrases, initials, slang, etc.

Additional features: Accessiway offers users the ability to change the colour and size of the cursor, use a print mode, activate a virtual keyboard, and many other features.
