The existing version of Loto-Québec and its subsidiaries' Web sites largely meet the requirements of the Québec government's standard on Web site accessibility (SGQRI 008-01) (in French only).
During the technological migration from the current site in 2012, we will be implementing elements needed to gradually bring all the organization's sites up to standard.
A text equivalent is provided for all important images.
Information appearing in colour is also accessible in black and white, highlighted via other text characteristics or images (borders, underline, bold, font, etc.).
