WAI stands for the Web Accessibility Initiative, an initiative launched by the W3C to foster website accessibility for people with disabilities. The initiative aims to enable people with disabilities (including physical disabilities and visual impairments) to browse and move around websites without missing out on information.

In 2005, the obligation to make the public web accessible was enshrined in law in France by Article 47 of the Law of 11 February (2005-102) on equal rights and opportunities, and participation and citizenship of people with disabilities, which states: “Public online communication services provided by Government departments, regional councils and related public institutions must be accessible to people with disabilities". The ministry for the budget has published a document, referred to as RGAA (General Accessibility Framework for Administrations), setting out comprehensive guidelines on making websites accessible.

N124 communication meets all the government requirements by ensuring that websites have AA level accessibility, apart from pages using Google Maps. Dynamic maps may be included on the website, although their code is not compliant with the RGAA, in order to further improve the user experience.
