  • The
    Université Paris 8 web site has been
    designed and implemented in accordance with the requirements of level AA of the
    standard W3C.

     

    In
    order to provide access to the web pages for disabled people and to ensure
    compatibility with the different help tools and navigation methods (vocal
    reader, refreshable Braille display, mouseless browsing, etc.), we have followed
    the recommendations of the following organisations:

     

    However,
    because of the number of authors of this site, and because of its dynamic
    nature, certain elements may unfortunately be of an inferior quality. If this
    is the case, please do not hesitate to inform us at: webmaster@univ-paris8.fr

     

     

     

    Screen modes

     

    The
    format and content of the site have been kept separate through the use of style
    sheets. Several formats are therefore available:

    • "standard format" -
      presentation with the default site formatting and a dark text on a light
      background,
    • "visual impairment mode" -
      presentation with no formatting and a black text on a white background,
    • "visual impairment mode with
      black background" - presentation with no formatting and a white text on a black
      background.

    These
    different screen modes can be accessed via the banner at the top of the page.

     

     

     

    Colours and images

     

    The
    site provides sufficiently marked colour contrasts to ensure easy reading as
    well as alternative texts to the images and animations presented.

     

     

    Display size

     

    Depending
    on your needs, you can shrink or enlarge the display of the site or change the
    text size of the articles.

     

     

     

    To change the size of the site:

     

    For PC:

     

    • With different navigators:
      simultaneously depress the Ctrl button and move the scroll wheel on the mouse.
    • With Chrome, Firefox and
      Netscape: simultaneously depress the Ctrl button and the + button on the
      numeric keypad to increase the size and the Ctrl button and the - button on the
      numeric keypad to reduce the size.
    • With Opera: select "View"
      then "Zoom" and select or simultaneously depress the + or - buttons on the
      numeric keypad.
    • With Internet explorer: select
      "View" then "Text size" and select.

     

     

     

    For Macintosh:

     

    • With Chrome, Firefox,
      Netscape and Safari: simultaneously depress the "apple" button and the + button
      on the numeric keypad to increase the size and the "apple" button and the -
      button on the numeric keypad to reduce the size.
    • With Opera: select "View"
      then "Zoom" and select or simultaneously depress the + or - buttons on the
      numeric keypad.
    • With Internet explorer: select
      "View" then "Text size" and select.

     

     

     

    To change the text size in the articles:

     

    The
    relative units (em and percentage) are primarily used to facilitate the resizing
    of the site and the texts of the articles.

    In
    the article options presented in the central section at the start and end of an
    article, you can click on the image representing the minus sign (-) to reduce
    the size of the text, on the image representing the plus sign (+) to increase
    the size and on "A" to return to the default size of the site text.

     

     

     

    Using the keyboard short cuts or access keys:

     

    By
    means of combinations of keys, the keyboard short cuts allow you to browse the
    web site more quickly without using the mouse.

    To
    use the keyboard short cuts, you must simultaneously press a number of buttons
    which vary according to your operating system and navigator and on buttons
    specific to the site pages and zones (numbers).

     

    For
    example: if you use Windows as your operating system and Firefox as your
    navigator and you wish to access the site plan page, you must simultaneously
    press the "Maj", "Alt" and "1" buttons
    (the site keyboard access number).

     

    IMPORTANT:
    YOU MUST USE THE NUMBERS ON THE MAIN KEYBOARD (LOCATED ABOVE THE LETTERS) AND
    NOT THE NUMBERS ON THE NUMERIC KEYPAD.
