> W3C Web Standard Defines Accessibility for Next Generation Web
> Collaborative Effort Results in More Flexible and Testable Standard;
> Advances Accessibility of the Web
> http://www.w3.org/ -- 11 December 2008 -- Today W3C announces a new 
> standard that will help Web designers and developers create sites that 
> better meet the needs of users with disabilities and older users. 
> Drawing on extensive experience and community feedback, the Web 
> Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 improve upon W3C's 
> groundbreaking initial standard for accessible Web content.
> This new standard from the W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) 
> will advance accessibility across the full range of Web content (such 
> as text, images, audio, and video) and Web applications. WCAG 2.0 can 
> be more precisely tested, yet it allows Web developers more 
> flexibility and potential for innovation. Together with supporting 
> technical and educational materials, WCAG 2.0 is easier to understand 
> and use.
> WCAG 2.0 addresses barriers to accessing the Web experienced by people 
> with visual, auditory, physical, cognitive and neurological 
> disabilities, and by older Web users with accessibility needs. WCAG 
> 2.0 explains how to make content:
> * Perceivable (for instance by addressing text alternatives for 
> images, captions for audio, adaptability of presentation, and color 
> contrast);
> * Operable (by addressing keyboard access, color contrast, timing of 
> input, seizure avoidance, and navigability);
> * Understandable (by addressing readability, predictability, and input 
> assistance); and
> * Robust (for instance by addressing compatibility with assistive 
> technologies).
> Wide Support for WCAG 2.0
> "Because WCAG 2.0 applies to all Web technologies, it can help ensure 
> that the Web stays open to people with disabilities even as we 
> continually introduce new technologies. We incorporated feedback from 
> thousands of comments received during the development of WCAG 2.0 
> regarding user needs, and technical feasibility," said Dr. Gregg 
> Vanderheiden, Co-Chair of WCAG Working Group, and Director of the 
> Trace R&D Center at the University of Wisconsin. "WCAG 2.0 represents 
> the outcome of a major collaborative effort, and its final form is 
> widely supported by industry, disability organizations, research and 
> government. This balance is important in order for WCAG 2.0 to serve 
> as a unifying international standard for Web accessibility."
> Extensive supporting materials to help developers and policy-makers 
> include WCAG 2.0 at a Glance; WCAG 2.0 Documents; How to Meet WCAG 
> 2.0: A Customizable Quick Reference; Understanding WCAG 2.0; and 
> Techniques for WCAG 2.0. Techniques are already available for HTML, 
> CSS, SMIL, Scripting, and Accessible Rich Internet Applications 
> (WAI-ARIA), and are under development for additional Web technologies. 
> Resources to support transition include How to Update Your Web Site to 
> WCAG 2.0. Essential Components of Web Accessibility describes the 
> relationship between WCAG 2.0 and other Web Accessibility Initiative 
> (WAI) guidelines that also have 2.0 versions under development.
> Far-Reaching Impact
> "Web accessibility helps us reach a broader audience by supporting 
> access to the Web for people with disabilities, as well as increasing 
> usability across a variety of mobile devices," explained Loretta 
> Guarino Reid, Co-Chair of WCAG WG, and Google Accessibility Engineer. 
> "The Web community helped us demonstrate successful use of WCAG 2.0 
> and WCAG 2.0 test procedures in diverse types of Web technologies, Web 
> content, interactive applications, and natural languages. These trial 
> implementations also show the continuity between WCAG 1.0 and 2.0, as 
> most Web sites that conformed to WCAG 1.0 did not need significant 
> changes to meet WCAG 2.0."
> While WCAG 1.0 was adopted widely, there is even broader interest in 
> adoption of WCAG 2.0 by organizations and governments worldwide. The 
> Policy for Authorized W3C Translations is expected to facilitate 
> direct adoption in local languages.
> "In the recently passed United Nations Convention on the Rights of 
> Persons with Disabilities, access to information and communications 
> technologies is for the first time recognized internationally as a 
> human right," according to George Kerscher, Secretary General of the 
> DAISY Consortium. "WCAG 2.0 will help to make access to information a 
> reality around the world."
> Current and recent participants in the WCAG Working Group include 
> Adobe, AOL, Google, IBM, International Webmasters Association/HTML 
> Writers' Guild, Microsoft, NIST, SAP, and Vision Australia, and 
> individual Invited Experts from research, disability, government and 
> standards organizations in Australia, Canada, Europe, Japan, and the 
> United States. In addition, the extensive public review process 
> resulted in comments from hundreds of organizations and individuals 
> around the world.
