From “Dive Into Mark“:
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 working draft from April 24, 2002. Only 3 weeks old!
The overall goal is to create Web content that is Perceivable, Operable, Navigable, and Understandable by the broadest possible range of users and compatible with their wide range of assistive technologies, now and in the future.
- Perceivable. Ensure that all content can be presented in form(s) that can be perceived by any user – except those aspects of the content that cannot be expressed in words.
- Operable. Ensure that the interface elements in the content are operable by any user.
- Orientation/Navigation. Facilitate content orientation and navigation
- Comprehendible. Make it as easy as possible to understand the content and controls.
- Technology Robust. Use Web technologies that maximize the ability of the content to work with current and future accessibility technologies and user agents.
I like that: perceivable, operable, navigable, understandable, and robust. That deserves to become a new acronym, PONUR
