Accessibility and Website Standards
The Web Content Accesibility Guidelines (WCAG) was created by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in order to bring accessibility considerations into the technology development of the Web Consortium and to determine guidelines for accessible technology including web authoring and user agents (browsers).
This TACSEI site was tested and passed using site report tools in Adobe Dreamweaver and Mozilla Firefox browser:

- Priority 1 Web Content Accessibility Checkpoints - Web developers must satisfy these requirements, otherwise it will be impossible for one or more groups to access the Web content. Conformance to this level is described as "A".
