Standards and Guidelines
In this section you can find a list of accessibility standards and guidelines, along with some useful information on their purpose and application domain. Generally speaking, such standards can be grouped in two different groups:
- the “abstract” ones, that are conceived to provide abstract rules and guidelines so as to make them applicable to a broader range of elements;
- the “highly specialized ones”, that tend to focus on a very specific aspect (e.g. a web technology, a single characteristic, etc.) and therefore are highly technical.
In addition to this, sometimes such documents can be a little bit hard to understand if you are not familiar with the topic they cover: don’t be scared, though! Wherever possible, support resources to help you get a better understanding will be also provided in other section of the website.
