[Signpost pointing to WCAG 2.0]

WCAG In Haiku


[WAI - road to barrier-free Web] Presentation

When you have non-text
Provide text equivalents.
Text repurposes
Reveal the structure.
Logical order is good
Showing it, better
Use presentation!
Clarify and emphacize
Paint form on data

[Final control for the user] Interaction

Assist the users;
Allow the user control
Of access and search
Make things consistent
Consistency's a good thing
Don't confuse users
Give user control
For changing views of pages
The user laughs last

[Comprehensible] Comprehension

Illustrate content
Making it simple and clear
Users will return
Break information
Into manageable chunks
Easier to use
Outline and index
Illustrate and summarize
Organize your work!

[Make it interoperable] Technology

When writing pages
Use accessible markup
Like W3C stuff
Don't abuse markup
Follow specifications.
There for a reason
Transform gracefully
People still use old browsers
Use new, support old
