In the United States, one in four Americans lives with a disability that affects their way of life, according to the Pew Research Center. Using the internet is a fundamental piece of most people’s lives – and we should strive to make an internet experience that tries to work for everyone. To that end, the W3C has authored Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG.) This is an international standard that helps keep technologies available to those with disabilities.

In this short series of posts, I will try to tackle the top five criteria that each of these roles should be considering. In this first post, I am approaching WCAG 2.0 AA from the mindset of a developer and offering the top criteria that will make the most difference to incorporate into your work now.
