What is digital accessibility?

Digital accessibility is a set of rules and best practices covering functional, graphic, technical and editorial aspects.

By following these rules and best practices, we can ensure that digital media (websites, mobile applications, PDF documents, etc.) are accessible to people with disabilities.

For example, an accessible site allows you to :

  • Customise your display via the operating system and/or browser (enlarge or shrink characters, change typography, change colours, stop animations, etc.).

  • Navigate using assistive technologies such as text-to-speech or Braille.

  • Navigate without using the mouse, using the keyboard only, switches or a touch screen.

  • View video and audio content using subtitles and/or transcriptions.

  • And much more.

Digital accessibility commitments

French Tech undertakes to make its website accessible in accordance with article 47 of law no. 2005-102 of 11 February 2005.

Declaration of conformity

This declaration applies to the “La Mission French Tech” website available at

Compliance status

This site is partially compliant with the RGAA (Référentiel Général d’Amélioration de l’Accessibilité) – version 4.1.2 due to the non-conformities listed below.

Test results

The RGAA version 4.1.2 compliance audit carried out in October 2023 revealed that out of the sample :

  • The overall compliance rate is 88% (obtained by dividing the number of compliant criteria by the number of applicable criteria);

  • The average compliance rate is 95.3% (obtained by averaging the compliance rates for each page).

Content not accessible


List of non-compliant criteria :

  • Videos contain embedded texts with insufficient contrast (for example: names and first names of speakers) – criterion 3.2

  • Videos available from this site do not have audio description – criterion 4.5

  • Data table titles are not structured correctly. Some screen readers will render them as captions – criterion 5.4

  • When the contact form is submitted, the focus remains at the bottom of the page and is not repositioned at the top of the page – criterion 7.1

  • The source code contains errors – criterion 8.2

  • Site pages contain many English words which may be poorly rendered by screen readers because language changes are not indicated in the code – criterion 8.7

  • Some lists contain only one item.
    Some lists contain only one item. Certain empty paragraphs are rendered “empty” by screen readers – criterion 8.9

  • Skip links to the main menu and to the main content area are present and functional.
    On Firefox, a visual lag may cause discomfort for some users. For example, if the “Go to menu” link is activated: the main menu links are not visible. You must then use the “Up arrow” key so that they are visible on the screen – criterion 12.7

  • Contact form errors are poorly rendered to screen readers: incorrectly completed fields are indicated but the corresponding error message is hidden.
    Some messages do not specify the field concerned (example: Please fill in this field) – criterion 11.10

Content not subject to the accessibility requirement

The “TarteAuCitron” cookie manager has been exempted, as has “Leaflet” which allows you to view maps. They have therefore not been the subject of a complete and detailed audit.

However, it was verified that their presence did not prevent the use and consultation of the rest of the site.
