What is the WCAG?
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 make web content accessible to people with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, and others.
WCAG’s guidelines state that your website must be:
- Perceivable: Text alternatives for non-text content, alternatives for time-based media, clear headings, etc.
- Operable: Navigable without a mouse, clear hierarchy of information, extra time for filling out forms, etc.
- Understandable: Text content is readable and understandable, pages appear and operate in predictable ways, error text is clear and helps users correct their mistakes
- Robust: Works well with current and future technologies
Reasons to have a WCAG compliant website:
- You will protect your organization from litigation
- You will be able to offer your products and services to more people
- When WCAG’s guidelines become the law, you will be ahead of your competition
