Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, How Far Have We Actually Come

Hello everyone and welcome to this week's bonus episode of the Blind Tech Guys.

On this episode, Nimer and Marco sat down with Mark Muscat and Dr. Scott Hollier for a chat on accessibility, WCAG, and whether we are moving in the right direction with making the web and PDF documents truly accessible.

  • Dr. Hollier and Mark introduced themselves, and discussed their experience in the accessibility field.
  • Marco and Nimer took turns asking questions about a number of topics including:
    • WCAG and its purpose,
    • How valuable is WCAG at making sure companies’ web presence is accessible,
    • How do individuals receive training in WCAG,
    • How do companies locate individuals to hire who are trained in WCAG and other accessibility best practices,
    • And what kind of enforcement exists in the U.S. and Australia which mandates companies comply with WCAG, as well as what Mark and Dr. Hollier think works to get companies to comply.


This was certainly an interesting conversation. For instance, did you know that in many countries, there are no laws to legislate web accessibility?

We want to thank Dr. Scott Hollier and Mr. Mark Muscat for agreeing to discuss this interesting topic with us and the team appreciates you giving up your valuable time in order to be a part of this week's bonus show.
