New Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Published

November 24, 2008

In May 1999 the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) published Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (WCAG 1.0) and since then they have been the benchmark for testing the accessibility of web sites. Since that time, web technology, and the understanding of accessibility, has progressed significantly. Soon after WCAG 1.0 was published work began on WCAG 2.0 and the first working draft was available in January 2001. It has taken a great deal of time and effort to get to the Proposed Recommendation which was published 3rd November 2008, and it is expected that the final publication will be before the end of the year.
