In France an estimated 6 million people have a disability (almost one-fifth of the world population have a recognised disability) and the number of senior citizens likely to suffer from various impairments is increasing rapidly.

With this in mind, particular care has been taken to make the La Française des Jeux website accessible to as many people as possible and particularly those with a visual impairment. All pages of the site currently meet the standards of the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) and are being gradually brought into line with the recommendations of the RGAA (Référentiel Général d'Accessibilité pour les Administrations - general accessibility framework for administrative authorities) and the WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative).

Accessibility recommendations taken into account are as follows:

— text equivalents for all non-text content (images, clickable areas, buttons, flash animations, forms, etc.);

— content adaptable in various ways without loss of information or structure (information independent of its visual layout);

— information provided independently of its visual form (logical, sequential order);

— facilitated visual perception (colour contrasts offering optimal reading comfort, simplified, light-touch page layout);

— usability with skip links and keyboard browsing provided.

In order to improve site accessibility we have been advised and supported by Urbilog.
