Working Group Note: Making Content Usable for People with Cognitive and Learning Disabilities

April 30th, 2021

The Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (AG WG) and the Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) Working Group have published the Working Group Note “Making Content Usable for People with Cognitive and Learning Disabilities” from the Cognitive and Learning Disabilities Accessibility Task Force (COGA). This document helps make web content, including applications, meet the needs of people with cognitive and learning disabilities. It covers aims and objectives for usable content; design patterns (ways) to make content usable; including users in research, design, and testing activities; personas; and user needs. The document provides informative “supplemental guidance” beyond the requirements of WCAG 2. It is not required for conformance to WCAG. We welcome comments for the next version of this document.
