On December 11, 2008, the W3C announced the WCAG 2.0 is now a W3C Recommendation. This is an important new component of everything we do as web designers. It is important that you read the documentation, collaborate with others in the program and outside in the developer community, and begin to understand the changes and the significance of the new standards for accessibility. A good starting point has been provided by Roger Johansson at 456 Berea St. The actual specification can be found at WCAG.
More on this later and expect to be working on this in all web scripting classes.
