Hi, Brian!


Of course, here it is:


As far as I have been able to figure out this is a standard.


I've commented a little bit, but this is in Norwegian and is therefore
probably not very interesting/useful:

Can you please provide a reference to the Swedish standard you speak of?
And, is it just a recommendation or a standard?

Hi, Harry! 
I totally agree. 
In some new Swedish guidelines for web developments (only public
authorities have to follow these) accessibility is one of the
categories. The first guideline say: follow WCAG 2. The other 43
accessibility guidelines cover forms, languages, links and other things.
In one of the guidelines it is stated that talking websites are
required! I was quite surprised when I read this! If I counted
correctly, 33 of the 44 guidelines in the accessibility section are also
found under usabilityJ!
