WCAG 2.0 applies more broadly to different types of Web technologies and to more advanced technologies. It is designed to apply as technologies develop in the future.

The WCAG 2.0 requirements are more precisely testable with automated testing and human evaluation. This allows WCAG 2.0 to be more easily used where specific requirements and conformance testing are necessary, such as in design specifications, purchasing, regulation, and contractual agreements.

WCAG 2.0 was developed in coordination with international efforts to harmonize on a single standard for Web content.

Along with WCAG 2.0 there is extensive support material with guidance and examples, making it easier to understand and use.
