Microsoft implements Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 for upcoming SharePoint 2010 release

Friday, 12 March 2010 16:08pm

In a recent blog post on the Microsoft SharePoint Team Blog, Tim McConnell, Program Manager on the SharePoint Foundation team, reaffirmed Microsoft’s commitment to implement WCAG 2.0 in the upcoming release of Microsoft SharePoint 2010, giving concrete examples of accessibility investments in the new release.

Although the previous version of SharePoint contained some access features, it was limited to a WCAG 1.0 focus, and required additional support from Microsoft partner organisations. The new SharePoint server aims to simplify the process by incorporating the features directly into the contact management system, should the administrators wish to use them.
