Collaborations WikiProjects Accessibility
Welcome to the Accessibility WikiProject!
This project aims to make Wikipedia accessible for users with disabilities. More specifically, accessibility means that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with Wikipedia, and that they can contribute to Wikipedia. Accessibility also benefits others, including older people with changing abilities due to aging.

Wikipedia needs you!
Do you have accessibility problems
in Wikipedia? Please, tell us!
The primary focus is on improving the accessibility of articles. The secondary focus is on actively assisting editors who possess disabilities or other characteristics which inhibit their ability to contribute to the encyclopedia.
The approach to make Wikipedia accessible is based on W3C's officials WCAG 2.0 and ATAG 2.0 guidelines. The guidelines provided by this accessible project are merely an attempt to reword the WCAG 2.0 into a guideline hopefully easier to understand for editors that are not familiar with accessibility nor web development.
