Welcome to the Accessibility WikiProject!

This project aims to make Wikipedia accessible for users with disabilities. More specifically, accessibility means that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with Wikipedia, and that they can contribute to Wikipedia. Accessibility also benefits others, including older people with changing abilities due to aging.

Details about the WikiProject Accessibility[edit]


The primary focus is on improving the accessibility of articles. The secondary focus is on actively assisting editors with disabilities or other characteristics which inhibit their ability to contribute to the encyclopedia.


The approach to make Wikipedia accessible is based on the W3C's official WCAG 2.0 (aka ISO/IEC 40500:2012) and ATAG 2.0 guidelines. The guidelines provided by this accessibility project are merely an attempt to reword the WCAG 2.0 into a guideline hopefully easier to understand for editors who are not familiar with accessibility or web development.
