Guidelines

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines [WCAG 2.0] is a technical accessibility standard developed to provide a single shared standard for web content accessibility that meets the needs of individuals, organizations, and governments. It has 12 guidelines that are organized under 4 principles: perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust. For each guideline, there are testable success criteria, which are at three levels: A, AA, and AAA.

The University of Wisconsin Parkside's target for meeting information technology accessibility standards is WCAG 2.0 Level AA. The Level AA success criteria provide a reasonable goal for websites / web applications, LMS / course content, and also function as a helpful metric for services that are not specifically web-based.
