The WCAG 2.0 Initiative

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines are designed to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities including blindness, low vision, hearing loss, photosensitivity limited movement and other challenges.

The Guidelines provide a range of recommendations that if accepted and implemented make the experience a person with disability has using your website far more productive and enjoyable. The guidelines have been developed primarily for

  • Web content developers (page authors, site designers, etc.)
  • Web authoring tool developers
  • Web accessibility evaluation tool developers
  • Others who want or need a standard for web accessibility

Our experience in the design and development of websites over a number of years have allowed us to develop an appreciation of the importance of the WCAG initiative. Where possible we incorporate the WCAG guidelines within the websites we develop and support.

The web needs to be maintained as a platform that can be effectively accessed and enjoyed by all, the guidelines assist in achieving this goal.
