“When we truly embrace digital accessibility, not only do we meet our local legislative and International human rights obligations, but we also reduce costs, and build our internal capacity for design and innovation. Our clients become our partners in building for universal design and they in turn build partnerships with their customers, continually creating delightful user experiences.”
Dr. Vivienne Conway, 2018
Here at Web Key IT we believe this too. We work with you to help you create inclusive digital environments which allow people with disabilities as well as other users to fulfill their information needs independently and in the most efficient manner possible.
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1
6th of June 2018
The Accessibility Guidelines Working Group has published Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 as a W3C Recommendation at: https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/
The document received broad support from the W3C Advisory Committee and the W3C Director approved the transition to Recommendation. That means it is a stable standard ready for general implementation.W3C encourages organizations and individuals to review and update their policies to reflect the updated guidance provided by WCAG 2.1, in order to address more user needs in their websites.
All requirements (“success criteria”) from 2.0 are included in 2.1. There are additional success criteria in 2.1. They are introduced in "What's New in WCAG 2.1" at: https://www.w3.org/WAI/standards-guidelines/wcag/new-in-21/
More information about this publication and next steps are in the blog post: https://www.w3.org/blog/2018/06/wcag21-rec/
