Background: UAAG defines how browsers, media players, and other "user agents" should support accessibility for people with disabilities and work with assistive technologies. UAAG is part of a series of accessibility standards developed by WAI, including Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG). UAAG 2.0 is currently informative only. For more information on UAAG and WAI standards, see:
