As of December 31, 2013, all websites in Australia, whether government or not, are required to comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) to at least Level AA. While government agencies have started to make changes, for the most part, these requirements are being ignored by corporate Australia. An inaccessible website leaves the organisation exposed to costly litigation.

Discover how your website can reach 20% more customers. Demonstrate you care about the needs of your users. Downgrade the risk of charges, suits and court costs. WCAG 2.0 is now ISO 40500:2012 - determine how you can achieve this essential ISO compliance.
