This page is not a help page. Its aim is to present the accessibility policy of the site and to determine the general level of accessibility observed on the site in accordance with the French accessibility (RGAA) guidelines.

What does web accessibility mean?

According to the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), an accessible website is one that allows all Internet users to access its content without difficulty. Accessibility allows people with any kind of disability, be it cognitive, visual, auditory, physical or neurological, to access a website without any restriction that may be related to their disability. Web accessibility also concerns older people whose motor and cognitive abilities change over the years.

  • Browsing using voice commands (for the visually impaired or blind).
  • Configuring the display of the website according to your needs.


Accessibility of the Connect by CNES website

CNES attaches great importance to the quality of its website. This is why accessibility needs were identified and taken into account when creating the Connect By website in order to offer optimal navigation to all.
The main objective of this approach is to ensure compliance with the RGAA (General Accessibility Improvement Reference Framework).CNES has ensured that the entire team involved in the development of the website has taken into account the notion of accessibility, by having third-party experts assist them, particularly for the audit and verification of corrections throughout the development phase.
