About us

Incorporated in 2002, The Paciello Group is a world-class accessibility agency, with a reputation for excellence.

We’re a member of the W3C, where we’re actively involved in many working groups including those responsible for the HTML5, ARIA and Indie UI specifications. We wrote many of the success techniques that underpin WCAG 2.0, and continue to contribute to this influential set of accessibility guidelines.

We’re also a founding member of the IAAP, and part of its leadership council. Our aim is to represent the views of the accessibility community as IAAP becomes a professional organization for accessibility practitioners.
