WCAG: Web Content Accessibility Guidelines

WCAG is the primary guideline for web accessibility. Most accessibility standards such as the Government of Canada Standard on Web Accessibility, and Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) in Canada. In the United States, accessibility standards are defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act in the United States reference levels of compliance based on WCAG’s guidelines. These levels include WCAG 2.0 A, WCAG 2.0 AA, and WCAG 2.0 AAA – each one offering increasing degrees of accessibility. WCAG references techniques defined under the WAI-ARIA specification developed by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as suitable methods for ensuring WCAG compliance.
