The acronym WCAG stands for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, it is a set of guidelines for the accessibility of Web content. This standard was developed last century by the WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative), a working group of the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium). The W3C is an international consortium of influential actors in the field of new technologies of informations and communications that enact many Web-related standards.
Version 2.0 of the WCAG standard presents 61 success criteria classified into 11 separate rules to make a content more accessible to people with disabilities. The application of these criteria of success also presents a direct and positive impact on the use of Web content for the aging population.
Rules and criteria for success of WCAG 2.0 are often more general than what could be read in version 1.0. This is because version 2.0 is aimed at all technologies used on the Web while WCAG 1.0 was much more focused on HTML and CSS.
