Tourism & Handicap

Holidays for everyone? Bouches-du-Rhône Tourisme assists the area's cultural and touristic attractions in providing accessible facilities for the disabled.

Editorial

Since 2003, Bouches-du-Rhône Tourisme has been committed to developing accessible travel opportunities for the disabled through the 'Tourism & Handicap' label, in partnership with the Area Council, PACA Regional Council and DIRECCTE PACA.
This national label guarantees a quality welcome adapted to the specific needs of disabled visitors and covers 4 types of handicap (physical, visual, auditory and mental).
In addition, Bouches-du-Rhône Tourisme has kept up to speed with the digital age by ensuring its website - visitprovence.com (awarded the AccessiWeb label) - is accessible too.

The Accessiweb Label
Browsing made easy

The Accessiweb Label

Our website visitprovence.com was awarded the Accessiweb three-star label in 2013. The principle: allow physically handicapped visitors to browse the website using a traditional keypad, without need for the mouse. The texts are also easy to enlarge. And visually-impaired visitors can listen to the entire website content thanks to the screen reader and browse using the voice instructions.

Browsing myprovence.fr via the menu

The main menu is situated below the VisitProvence logo on each page and allows you to access all of the site's various sections and sub-sections. You can also browse using the tab key (press Tab to highlight the desired link then press Enter). This allows fast access to other sections from any page on the website, just like the main menu.
