Validité et accessibilité
W3C is an acronym used to define the World Wide Web Consortium, which is a non-profit organisation allowing for standards to be defined for web-related technologies.
Its mission is to define common standards in the field of Internet development, and in particular in that of HTML code. The presence of the W3C acronym guarantees the website a sufficient level of access compliant with the correct programming methods to be used in its design.
WAI is the acronym for the Web Accessibility Initiative, the initiative launched by W3C in favour of website accessibility for disabled web users. Its aim is to allow disabled people (motor, visual handicap, etc.) to surf and move around the website without losing information.
In 2005, the public web accessibility obligation was legally created by Article 47 of the Law of 11 February (No. 2005-102) on the "equal rights and opportunities, participation and civic rights of disabled people", which sets out: "The on-line public communication services for Government departments, local collectivities and public institutions dependent thereon must be accessible to disabled people". In this request, the budget ministry drafted a document, known as the RGAA, deemed to set out all the best practice rules for rendering a website accessible.
N124 communication meets all state requirements by giving sites AA level, with the exception of pages using Google Maps. Indeed, with a view to continually improving the user experience, dynamic maps can be integrated into the site, even if their code is not RGAA compatible.
