The Australian Government has implemented the Web Accessibility National Transition Strategy (NTS) which mandates compliance with WCAG 2.0. Those sites not covered by the NTS fall within the purview of the Australian Human Rights guidelines, which recommend WCAG 2.0 AA as a minimum standard. This research will assess this strategy over the period of its implementation as well as building a framework to assist other organisations in their efforts to build more accessible websites.
