Making the Web Accessible

Strategies, standards, and supporting resources to help you make the Web more accessible to people with disabilities.


The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) develops international standards for the Web: HTML, CSS, and many more.


The W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) develops standards and support materials to help you understand and implement accessibility.


You can use W3C WAI resources to make your websites, applications, and other digital creations more accessible and usable to everyone.
