OPEN EDITIONS strives to ensure that its services are accessible to people with disabilities, and believes that every person has the right to live with dignity, equality, comfort and independence.

Web Accessibility

The makes available the UserWay Website Accessibility widget. This software allows to improve our compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1). The UserWay accessibility menu can be enabled either by hitting the tab key when the page first loads or by clicking the accessibility menu icon that appears on the corner of the page. After triggering the accessibility menu, please wait a moment for the accessibility menu to load in its entirety.


We at OPEN EDITIONS are aware that our web content has not yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. In order to bring our website to full compliance with WCAG 2.1, we are planning in the near future to:

  • Appoint a Web Accessibility coordinator to oversee this project and help meeting the objectives of this policy.
  • Distribute this policy to all personnel who works with web content including writers, editors, designers, and developers.
  • Fix and remediate all the ADA non-compliance issues to meet as many of the WCAG 2.1 success criteria as possible.
  • Engage in regular automated testing, annual manual audits, and user testing to assess and improve accessibility.
  • Retain an independent expert Web Accessibility consultant to conduct annual audits and testing on
