How hard is it to comply with World Wide Web Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0?

Last Modified: 2015-03-17
Dear experts,

I'm considering taking on a new SQL/.NET application development project, but the prospective client needs the website to adhere to level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0.

Can you help me understand what that really means? Who tests that? How hard is it for a C#/.NET/SQL application to adhere to those standards? Are there any .NET libraries that automatically comply? Are there any good cheat sheets that protect me, so that can claim the application is compliant?

Thanks so much!
