WCAG 2.1 (Level AAA)

WEB ACCESSIBILITY?

Web Accessibility is the means of making a website accessible to everyone, regardless of one’s (dis)abilities.

 

 

 

WHY IS WEB ACCESSIBILITY IMPORTANT?

At Digital Mountaineers, we believe everyone should have equal access to information. Complete inclusion of the differently abled needs to be a priority for businesses of all sizes & industries. Not only is it the right thing to do, it is required under US law.

WHAT IS WCAG?

Who Developed WCAG?

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international community where member organizations, staff, and the public work together to develop inclusive web standards. The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), a part of W3C, is the foremost expert on web accessibility.

 

What WCAG Standards Exist Now?

The latest Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) standards developed are WCAG 2.1. The WAI is always working diligently on ensuring WCAG standards are at their peak level of inclusivity. As they update their standards, Digital Mountaineers ensures that all web accessibility projects meet them completely.

 

How is WCAG Compliance Determined?

WCAG standards are categorized into three levels: A, AA, AAA (the highest standard being Level AAA). Below, we have explained each level and outlined what type of entity would seek that value of WCAG compliance.

DOES ADA APPLY TO WEBSITES?

  • Accessible Websites
  • Non-Accessible Websites

Yes! Although there is still some debate, it is important to act as if ADA does apply to websites. There has been a cascade of web accessibility lawsuits in the past few years that suggest the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) applies to websites.

 

Concerned you are not in compliance with ADA? If your website meets WCAG standards, you are likely in compliance with the ADA.

 

While ADA applies to all websites, it may be of particular concern to large businesses as well as all public entities (e.g. public transit companies, school districts, official town/city websites, etc.).

YOUR WEB ACCESSIBILITY REPORT

WHAT YOU GET

We run a WCAG Compliance Diagnostic Scan on every page of your website. We analyze the findings, classify the accessibility issues, and put together a plan for bringing your website into WCAG compliance. Your report also outlines which issues are more easily remedied and which ones will require more time and resources.
