This book is based on the Understanding Web Accessibility book developed in 2008 by Greg Gay (the current author) and Alan Cantor, as part of a Government of Ontario Enabling Change project undertaken by the Inclusive Design Research Centre at OCAD University. This update is also supported by funding from Enabling Change with the goal of providing educational opportunities for Ontarians (and anyone else) to learn about web accessibility.

This version of the book adds updates for WCAG 2.1, introduced in 2018, that takes into consideration advances made in mobile technologies since WCAG 2.0 was released, as well as advances in our understanding of strategies to make web content more accessible to people with cognitive disabilities. In addition, it introduces a variety of new activities to help participants develop a practical understanding of web accessibility.
