WEB CONTENT ACCESSIBILITY GUIDELINES (WCAG 2.0)
WCAG 2.0 and WCAG 2.1 are stable, referenceable, technical AND international system of coding standards. It has 12-13 guidelines that are organized under four principles: perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust. For each guideline, there are testable success criteria, which are attainable in three levels: A, AA, and AAA.
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) sets the main international standards for the World Wide Web and its accessibility. W3C created the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) which are similar to Section 508, but on an international level. Section 508 Amendment to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 require Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities.
At the time of this writing, there is no law (in the USA) that requires the general public to be in compliance with WCAG 2.0 standards. However, websites related to U.S. federal government agencies, with some exceptions, require that their websites must be fully accessible and in compliance with WCAG 2.0 Level AA.
