Universal Accessibility

INFOGRAPHIC-UNIVERSAL-DESIGN.jpg

There are many reasons why people may be experiencing varying degrees of auditory, cognitive, neurological, physical, speech, and visual disabilities.

When developing this website, we have explored a wide range of diversity of people and abilities, and highlighted some of the types of web accessibility barriers that people commonly encounter from poorly designed websites and web tools.

This website has been developed with the web accessibility requirements for websites, web applications, browsers, and other tools guidelines as referenced from the international standards from W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), which include considerations for the broad diversity of web users and ways people use the Web.

The W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) develops a set of guidelines that are internationally recognized as the standard for web accessibility. These include:

  • Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)
  • User Agent Accessibility Guidelines (UAAG)
  • Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG)​
