A "user agent" (for example, a graphical browser, voice browser or Web-enabled phone) renders Web content for a Web user. Following the User Agent Accessibility Guidelines can assist authors and developers in creating user agents and content that make the Web accessible to people with disabilities. These agents will have a widely accessible user interface, provide alternative controls and document structure access methods, and offer compatibility with assistive technologies.

This specification provides techniques for becoming compliant with User Agent Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (UAAG). This document lists each checkpoint from the User Agent Accessibility Guidelines, then explains the reasoning behind the requirement and offers example techniques for satisfying the requirement.

Links to related examples and sample techniques for exceeding the basic requirement are also included. Each checkpoint is prioritized according to its relative importance to disabled users.
