BREADCRUMB

Breadcrumb is a navigation aid which helps you to find things and navigate round the site. It allows you to see where you are and retrace your steps at any moment. It is located below the main menu, at top left of the screen, and may take the form of:
Home > Heading > Sub-heading > Current page...

SITE PLAN

The site plan is accessible from any page of the site, by a link located at the bottom of the page. The site plan is a list of links to all level 1 and 2 pages.

See site plan page

SHORT-CUT LINKS

Three links at the top of each page allow you to:

go directly to the menu, skipping the secondary page menu
go directly to the content following the page title
go directly to the site search engine
 

Ease of reading

A default size is assigned to each text element in the site. The user can adjust the size using either the site toolbar or the specific function in the browser:

Microsoft Internet Explorer: Menu "Display", then "Text size"
Firefox 2.0 and later: Menu "Display", then "Zoom text"
Google Chrome : "Personalize and configure Google Chrome", Menu "Parameters", "Display advanced parameters...", "Web content"
 

Printing

The site pages are designed for easy printing without further formatting. Browser elements do not show in the printable version.
Before printing you can check the page layout in your browser in the menu File > Print preview.
Older generation browsers will not include these adjustments but will still provide a clear, readable, structured print-out.

DOWNLOADING CONTENT

Reading attached documents
You will find documents in the site which are in PDF format. If you do not have Acrobat Reader, you can download it from the Adobe site: Download Acrobat Reader


Alternative to javascript functions
Some actions in the pages are obtained using javascript code. Special care has been taken to ensure that content which depends on the javascript code is still accessible if your browser cannot interpret these actions.


Accessibility of forms
Each field in the forms is systematically associated with an explicit label. This improves accessibility and ensures that when you click on a label you position the mouse directly over the associated entry field.
