Biocat has implemented the following measures to allow users to easily access all the contents and functions of the website.
Multi-browser, multi-device website
Our website is compatible and can be seen properly on the most common browsers (Mozilla, Edge, Safari, Chrome), using their desktop and mobile versions.
The structure of our website is coherent and consistent throughout. Things are always in the same place, the same format and with the same content, for a pleasant, simple, intuitive user experience.
The website avoids any sort of distractions that could make it difficult to get to and read the content quickly and clearly. There aren’t any flashing or vibrating elements, inappropriate colors or unexpected or unnecessary movements.
Images with embedded text
The content, except for logos or brand images, mainly avoids using images with embedded text.
The page titles are the same as the sections on the menu, which makes the site consistent and coherent so users don’t get lost. The titles help guide and provide context for users in the various sections on each page.
The visual characteristics of the website (font, text and background colors, etc.) have been established using style sheets. They meet WCAG 2.0 guidelines on contrast ratios at Level AA.
Forms on the website have tags identifying each field and control element to make them as easy as possible to use.
The language is easy to change and identify, properly labeled in a spot that is clearly visible.
Biocat social media profiles are easy to access from the website.
The audiovisual players used belong to platforms (YouTube and Vimeo) that offer systems accessible to users on any sort of device, keyboard users and people with visual impairment.
Audiovisuals with description
When necessary, the audiovisual contents on the website have descriptions and subtitles.
The website uses clear, simple language that is appropriate for its target audience.
The Biocat website has been designed to make it accessible to anyone who visits, regardless of their physical, sensory or intellectual capabilities, and their technical context (type of device, computer software, connection speed, environmental conditions, etc.).
As such, we strive to adapt the whole website to the guidelines of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to eliminate any barriers to accessing the information and communication. These recommendations are laid out in the WCAG 2.1 guidelines on website accessibility at Level AA.
If you find any barriers to browsing the site, please send us an email to let us know.
