Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)

The World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) commitment to lead the Web to its full potential includes promoting a high degree of usability for people with disabilities. The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) develops its work through W3C's consensus-based process, involving different stakeholders in Web accessibility. These include industry, disability organizations, government, accessibility research organizations, and more.

W3C does not endorse specific vendor products. Inclusion of products in this reference list does not indicate endorsement by W3C. Products and search criteria are listed with no quality rating.

W3C does not verify the accuracy of these claims. The list is not a review of evaluation tools, nor a complete or definitive listing of all tools.
