Introduction to Web Accessibility is aimed at a general audience, but will also be useful for those developing content or applications for the Web. The focus is on understanding the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1), and developing experience with barriers that can be found on the Web that make it difficult, or impossible, for some people with disabilities to access web content.
