Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) (url : https://www.w3.org/WAI/standards-guidelines/wcag/) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA.

Actimage.com is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.


The French government has defined a standard called RGAA ( url : http://references.modernisation.gouv.fr/rgaa-accessibilite/) which stands for Accessibility General Referential for Administrations. This referential is based off the worldwide standards of WCAG. RGAA sets the standards and requirements that are observed by Actimage when considering the accessibility of its websites and digital solutions.


Additional accessibility considerations

Actimage.com has few videos, but each one of them has captions in order to be accessible to deaf people, people not confortable with the langage and people without headphones. One such video can be found on this page : https://www.actimage.com/fr/references/hol-autisme/

The body of the text is always a dark grey font on a white background. This passes the AA requirement for contrast for small text. Some buttons, headers and hover-status are in red font on white background, which passes the AA requirements for large text.


The website design is consistent and the information is always found in the same place. The information is never given by only changing color, but also by a short and subtle animation. One exception of this being the langage button. Animations are subtle and slow. The website is safe to use for people with photosensitivity. There is no audio content that loads automatically.

Our fill-in-forms are structured, organized and clear. The important information is labelled with an *. The errors are clearly indicated with visual elements. It may be improved with clear examples.

Such a fill-in-form can be found here : https://www.actimage.com/en/contact/

The design is responsive in order to be read on any device, and with any level of zoom.


We use headers in order to properly structure our pages. There is only one h1 (main header of the page) per page. We never skip headers levels. A h2 (header level 2) always precedes a h3 (header level 3).
