Mobile Web and Web Content Accessibility — 13 July 2009

The Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group (BPWG) and the WAI Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) published the W3C Working Group Note: Relationship between Mobile Web Best Practices (MWBP) and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). People with disabilities using computers have similar interaction limitations as people without disabilities who are using mobile devices. This note describes the similarities and differences between the requirements Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and Mobile Web Best Practices 1.0 (MWBP).

Designing the guidelines together, instead of separately, can make the process more efficient. This note includes the following pages:
