What Is WCAG Compliance?
WCAG stands for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. WCAG covers not only visual and hearing impairments, but also cognitive, learning, language, and other disabilities. Following WCAG guidelines helps ensure that your website is user-friendly for anyone and everyone. Understanding web accessibility guidelines is important not only for web designers and web developers but for anyone who is adding content to a website.
How Do I Know If My Website Is WCAG Compliant?
To check WCAG compliance, a website accessibility checker can scan your website and identify any WCAG compliance issues. Some compliance issues can be easily corrected, while others require web development experience. As new content is added to your website additional compliance issues can arise. Understanding and maintaining accessibility compliance is an ongoing effort, requiring ongoing location and correction of compliance breaches.
