The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment websites follow guidelines on accessibility set out by the W3C (the World Wide Web Consortium). The W3C WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) produces accessibility guidelines that are an internationally recognised benchmark of accessibility.
In designing these sites, we have attempted to meet the WAI's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 requirements (success criteria) and techniques.
