Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)

Search engine optimisation

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) documents explain how to make Web content accessible to people with disabilities. Web "content" generally refers to the information in a Web page or Web application, including text, images, forms, sounds, and such. The WCAG( ) has three levels:
A conformance (satisfying the Priority 1 checkpoints),
AA conformance (satisfying the Priority 1 and 2 checkpoints) and
AAA conformance (satisfying the Priority 1, 2 and 3 checkpoints).

The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA, part 3)

508 explained

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, is a US law requiring electronic technology used by the government to be accessible. Specific requirements are maintained by the Access Board in the Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility Standards (36 CFR Part 1194). This standard is structured as a set of provisions, each identified by a paragraph. There are 16 paragraphs applicable to web technology, most of which correspond to WCAG checkpoints.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)

Language used to describe how an HTML document should be formatted. Using CSS means that the style and formatting of a document is completely separated from the content.

Why use CSS?

With CSS and its lack of presentational markup, the only thing that a screen reader encounters is actual content, thus making the site easier to navigate for visually impaired visitors. This means that if your browser does not support CSS or if you wish to turn it off then all pages are still easily readable and fully functional.
