WebAIM's top goal is to help make the web more accessible to individuals with disabilities. We can't do that on our own. Since 1999, we have helped build a large community of developers, web masters, individuals with disabilities, and others who share this goal with us. In the sharing of resources and information, the web accessibility community benefits. WebAIM provides several ways for you to both learn and share with others.
