  • natural information such as text, images, and sounds
  • code or markup that defines structure, presentation, etc.
  • WCAG is primarily intended 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
  • Related resources are intended to meet the needs of many different people, including policy makers, managers, researchers, and others.

  1. Chart a Course: based on that assessment, they help you figure out where you need to go and how you’re going to get there

  2. Learn to do it yourself: Part of getting there is working with your teams to ensure that they get the knowledge and skills that you need to be self-sufficient.

  3. SimplyAccessible also provides on-going monitoring and evaluation of the accessibility of your redesign efforts, or new web sites and applications. Why? Because you need to know if you’re hitting the mark.
