Article discusses a new version released by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) of its Web-accessibility guidelines. The guidelines are meant to help Web designers build sites that can be read and understood by people with disabilities as diverse as blindness, hearing impairments, physical impairments, and cognitive disabilities. The new guidelines, developed with broad input from the Web-development community, updates the original W3C guidelines, which are often used with modifications that may result in conflicting requirements. With the release of the new version, W3C also released a suite of quick-reference documents, including an overview, a guide on how to meet the new requirements, and a guide to understanding the new guidelines. The article offers links to the new W3C Web-accessibility guidelines as well as the quick-reference documents.
