The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) is an initiative of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) meant to develop standards and support materials to help you understand and implement accessibility for people with disabilities.
The W3C launched the Web Accessibility Initiative in 1997 with endorsement by The White House and W3C members. WAI develops its work through W3C’s consensus-based process, involving different stakeholders in web accessibility.
These include industry, disability organizations, government, and accessibility research organizations.
The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) is led by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
