Digital accessibility

What is Digital Accessibility?

For a website to be deemed accessible, all of its content must be perceivable, usable, understandable and robust for all users, regardless of any physical or cognitive disability, the equipment used or the performance of the connection. 

The accessibility of a website is measured by taking into account all the current applicable standards set out in the Référentiel général d'accessibilité pour les administrations (RGAA).
These standards must be taken into account when creating any new digital tool (website, application) and each time it is updated, whether technically, graphically or editorially.

Accessibility declaration

As part of an inclusive approach, the City of Haguenau is committed to making its website accessible in accordance with the article 47 of law no. 2005-102 of the 11th February 2005.

Exemptions for disproportionate workload

Given the number of videos and PDFs available on the City of Haguenau website, it is considered that the burden of bringing all these documents into compliance would be disproportionate for the municipality.

However, the City of Haguenau is committed to providing an alternative to inaccessible videos and PDFs on request.

Furthermore, in the future and as often as possible, the videos and PDF documents made public on the website of the institution may be the subject of a review to ensure that they are in conformity.

Content imported from external services does not fall within the scope of the accessibility requirements. This exception applies to the following content:

News feeds imported from the following social networks: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
This site contains videos published on external platforms (Dailymotion, YouTube, Vimeo). The video readers of these third-party platforms are exempt from the accessibility requirements.
