The International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP) is dedicated to the concept of accessibility for all participants. We recognize that our work promoting the development of an accessibility profession can never be complete unless all people can engage in education, networking and certification opportunities. We will work both to deliver accessible information and services and to continually improve in areas where new accessibility barriers are identified.
Meeting accessibility standards is one important aspect of achieving our goal. The W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 – also known as ISO/IEC 40500:2012 – is the best-known international standard for accessibility and is being adopted into policy by countries and organizations around the world. The IAAP targets WCAG 2.0 AA to guide our efforts in delivering accessible content.
Please note that we have launched a beta version of IAAP Connections. Please click the link below for the release notes identifying known issues with the site. Your feedback is helpful in identifying any additional issues in our site, and we request that you let us know if you notice any issues. In return, we pledge to promptly acknowledge your feedback and provide an expected date for the issue to be addressed.

IAAP is looking for volunteers to provide technical assistance answering general questions about the IAAP website and other IAAP technology platforms.
