To make the website easier to use by users and the disabled who use specialized software or equipment or requiring personalization of the website display, we conformed with a portion of the AA-level criteria of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1:

Navigation using a screen reader

A screen reader is a text-to-speech software. It allows you to interact with the computer and listen to what is displayed on the screen in textual form. This tool is often used by visually handicapped and blind people.

We tested the website with the NVDA screen reader. This free software is compatible with Windows and can be downloaded on
