WCAG 2.0 Checklist

Along the same line as their popular Section 508 Checklist, WebAIM has just published a WCAG 2.0 Checklist.

This is intended to be an easy-to-use, understandable checklist for evaluating or implementing WCAG 2.0–a standard for creating accessible websites (and eLearning). The language in the checklist is significantly simplified from the actual WCAG 2.0 language published by the W3C. While the complexity of the language in WCAG 2.0 is, in my opinion, mostly necessary to ensure that it is independently verifiable and technology agnostic, it does pose difficulties – particularly for those new to accessibility. This checklist should make implementing WCAG 2.0 much easier.
