Released in December 2008, the W3C's WCAG 2 is the latest Accessibility Standard to emerge from the W3C, and is the foundation of Stanford's Web Accessibility strategy moving forward.

Less of a checklist of do's and don't's, WCAG 2 focuses on 4 foundational principles: Perceivable, Operational, Understandable and Robust.

In this session, John Foliot explains WCAG 2 using clear and simple examples, and discusses how it will impact on your Stanford web content.
