Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 covers a wide range of recommendations for making Web content more accessible. Following these guidelines will make content accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity and combinations of these.
Following these guidelines will also often make your Web content more usable to users in general.
Accessibility is good for both the economy and the community. Accessible information and employment make it possible for this growing group of people to contribute to the economy and society. Likewise, accessible transportation and public spaces ensure that people can move around their communities. Similarly, accessible customer service allows people to exercise their spending power.
