WAI Quick Tips Reference Card

Ordering | Sample | Quick Tips

The following "Quick Tips" provide a reminder of some key concepts of accessible Web design. The Quick Tips are available on a vinyl business-card sized reference card. Complete guidelines for accessible Web content are available at Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 are a W3C Recommendation, and include information critical to understanding these Quick Tips. There is also an easy-to-use Checklist, and a detailed document describing Techniques for implementing the Guidelines.

When using the Quick Tips cards, it is important to emphasize that these are not complete guidelines, but rather an introduction and a memory prompt for some key concepts of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

This resource was developed by the WAI Education and Outreach Working Group. Information on other activities and resources of W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative is available on the WAI home page.

This more closely aligns the Quick Tips text with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 as finalized in May, 1999. If you have ordered Quick Tip cards during July or August you will have noticed a delay in receiving the cards. We are filling existing orders with old cards to the extent available. New cards will be available the first week of September.
