Accessibility And Usability Compliance with WCAG Guidelines

Under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992, all organizations are required to ensure that the information and services are provided in a non-discriminatory accessible manner. As part of this, all Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) software applications or Software as a Service (SaaS) must conform to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 at levels A and AA and be compatible with Adaptive Technology (AT). The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines have been developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) under the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). The WAI develops strategies, guidelines, and resources to help make the Web (and web-based services) accessible to people with disabilities.
