Page Contents

As part of a conformance claim to the "Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines 1.0," people may use a conformance icon on a Web site, on product packaging, in documentation, etc. Each conformance icon (chosen according to the appropriate conformance level: Level A, Double-A, or Triple-A) must link to the W3C explanation of the icon. The appearance of a conformance icon does not imply that W3C has reviewed or validated the claim. An icon must be accompanied by a well-formed claim.

A conformance icon must link to the W3C explanation of the icon. The appearance of a conformance icon does not imply that W3C has reviewed or validated the claim. Here is an example of using the ATAG 1.0 Level Double-A icon and a link to a well-formed claim:
