The Web Accessibility Initiative Communities of Practice (WAI-CooP) is a project to support the implementation of the EU web accessibility directive and international standards for digital accessibility.

The Web Accessibility Initiative Communities of Practice (WAI-CooP) is a project to support the implementation of the EU web accessibility directive and international standards for digital accessibility.

The project’s overall objectives include:

  • Establishing vendor-neutral overview on available training, tools, and resources internationally
  • Analyzing technological advancements and coordinating with relevant research and development
  • Providing opportunities for key stakeholders to share resources and to exchange best practices

WAI-CooP will deliver this by building on the existing wealth of authoritative guidance available from the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), to provide a one-stop shop for a range of key stakeholders involved in the implementation of digital accessibility. This includes public bodies and private entities; organisations representing people with disabilities; product, service, and training providers; researchers; policy makers and so on.
