The WCAG has quite a few more than 12 guidelines. For AA conformance (which is the recommended level) there are 78 guidelines. There's more if you're aiming for AAA, but that's a very difficult standard to achieve, and isn't always possible for all types of content.

Ah, I see you were referring to the older WCAG 2.0 standards rather than the more recent 2.1 guidelines, of which there were only 12.
