Web Accessibility Policy
Web accessibility provides persons with a disability and those who cannot use a mouse with access to information on Internet sites. For example, technical (refreshable braille displays) and software (screen-to-speech software) aids allow blind people to access information on Web pages. Accessibility also makes browsing the Internet easier for people with reduced mobility.
The Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal is aware of the issues related to Internet accessibility and of the importance of giving everyone equal access to the information and services available on our website.
That is why we created a continuous improvement program, to gradually bring all of our website’s existing and future content into line with the Québec government’s accessibility standards.
