accessibility standards and guidelines

what are standards?

Standards define design features for a product. Universal design for differing physical abilities is, for example, made possible by standards for buildings, street curbs, or web pages. Basic groundwork is needed to identify design issues that have implications for people with cognitive impairment. Then the technical standards must be drafted, voted upon, and promoted for adoption.
