Site development and hosting

-  Site technology: The site’s technical development is using Agora, an open-source content publishing software. Agora is a free, user-friendly, straightforward tool that enables all information providers to become their own web publishers. The software allows for the concise management of publishing rights and for controlled and decentralized onlining.

  • Interoperability: XML RSS feeds, technology used to syndicate the content of all public websites via a single link.
  • Accessibility compliance (W3C, WAI, Accessiweb, partnership with Braillenet): with Agora, the sites launched are in complete compliance with accessibility standards.
  • A standardized technological environment: Agora considerably reduces the technical constraints related to certain technologies. Highly adaptable, Agora can meet site development needs and the demand for shorter deadlines and lower costs.
  • Incorporation of multimedia issues: Agora also incorporates such key features as referencing and audience measurement.

-  Website graphics: Website and computer graphics designed by Eric Jabouille La Salle for the SIG.

-  Hosting: Website hosted by Prosodie servers.
