Web Accessibility Knowledgebase

Web accessibility is highly complex; the only internationally recognized set of guidelines (the WCAG) is a 1000-page guidebook and not exactly intended for light reading. Our “Web Accessibility Knowledgebase” aims to streamline all this information into an easy-to-understand format, so you don’t have to read that 1000-page guidebook! You’ll find everything you need right here: how-to’s, requirements, reports, and more.
