Re: Diving into web-accessibility, what to start with?

Hello Vsevolod,

It's great that you are interested in accessibility! My suggestions for getting started:

* A free online course "Introduction to Web Accessibility" (available through September) is introduced here:

* W3C WAI website resources, starting with "Introduction to Web Accessibility" page, and following the links on that page to:
Essential Components of Web Accessibility
How People with Disabilities Use the Web
Accessibility Principles
... and more

After you understand the basics from the course &/or those pages, then WCAG will make more sense. :-) And note the starting place for WCAG is the Overview page at: https://www.w3.org/WAI/standards-guidelines/wcag/

Best regards,
