A practical resource for web developers that shows you how to comply with WCAG 2.0. Each topic explains what you need to do, why you need to do it and how to do it in easy-to-understand language.
As a developer, you need to know a lot if you want to comply with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0). But that doesn’t mean it has to be hard.
There’s no need to scour the web looking for the occasionally helpful nugget of information, piecing them together, and hoping they’re right. That takes forever, and you still end up with a patchwork quilt with lots of holes in it.
Virtually everything you need to know is right here. What to do, why to do it and how to do it. All in one place, all easy to find and follow. Unlike the WCAG 2.0 materials, this guide is written specifically for developers and includes additional techniques for emerging technologies. Obviously it won't teach you how to code; you already know how to do that. But it will teach you all the things you need to consider when building accessible digital experiences.
Our accessibility specialists have done all the research and hard work, so you can just learn it quickly and get on with the job.
