    I’ve been told that there’s a specific checklist that we designers/coders should be aware of that will ensure that all web standards are met, even legal ones (such as ones which will ensure that even people with sight disabilities can easily access information).

    Is there an online website guide or downloadable PDF that you guys follow?

    And would it vary by country or is there an international set of rules?

    Can’t say that I have ever heard of a specific list like that.

    There is [WCAG](, can’t help you more than this since I only know some basics of accessibility. They are guidelines, not standards or anything to do with legal stuff though.

    Don’t see how.

    That’s like a blind person suing a book publisher for not providing a spoken version.

    If you choose not to provide that option it’s tough luck. No-one has a legal ‘right’ to be able to access every webpage.

    Not ideal but a fact nonetheless.

    Sure, you can be sued but whether it holds up in a court of law is a different story.
