WCAG

Below is the theme song for the new Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0). These guidelines were created to explain how to make Web content accessible to people with disabilities.

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 Web content more usable to users in general.

Please follow the link above to the web content accessibility guidelines to learn more about how to make your web content accessible to all. I'm not sure about where I learned about the WCAG, but I'm thankful that I did. It is an important document to pass on.
