The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has set out guidelines for Web content developers, in order to make their pages more accessible for people with disabilities.

Supported by the European Commission's DG XIII's TIDE programme, W3C has carried out its commitment to lead the Web to its full potential including promoting a high degree of usability for people with disabilities.

In the "Web Content Accessibility Guidelines" document,
The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) is pursuing accessibility of the Web through five primary areas of work: technology; guidelines; tools; education & outreach; and, research and development.

According to W3C, the Web accessibility guidelines are essential for Web-site development and for Web-related applications development. WAI is coordinating with many organisations to produce page-author guidelines for accessible Web sites.

The working draft of the guidelines can be accessed on the W3C's webpage:
