A closer look
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are international standards for accessibility which aim to identify, remove, and prevent barriers for people with disabilities. As such, there exists a series of specific requirements and expectations that a website must meet in order to comply.

Why it's important to follow the standard.
Accessibility legislation has been passed in Canada, the United States, and many other countries around the world. It was passed to ensure that people with disabilities could participate equally in society, without encountering obstacles.
