ISO/IEC 24756:2009 defines a framework for specifying a common access profile of needs and capabilities of users, computing systems, and their environments, including access supported by assistive technologies. It provides a basis for identifying and dealing with accessibility issues in a standardized manner across multiple platforms. It can be used to evaluate the accessibility of existing systems in particular environments for particular users.


ISO/IEC TR 13066:2012 provides an overview to the structure and terminology of the IAccessible2 accessibility API.

ISO/IEC TR 13066-2:2012 provides information about the Microsoft® Windows® Automation Frameworks, including Microsoft Active Accessibility, User Interface (UI) Automation, and the common interfaces of these accessibility frameworks including the IAccessibleEx interface specification. It provides information on application programming interfaces (APIs) needed to use these frameworks.


Interoperability involves the ability to use assistive technology (AT) to add to or augment existing components of information technology (IT) systems. Interoperability between AT and IT is best facilitated via the use of standardized, public interfaces for all IT components.
