Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)

So you want to make your website or app accessible to as many audiences as possible? In which case, you’ve probably heard of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

These guidelines are now (as of June 2018) in version 2.1, having evolved with the adoption of modern devices and browsers.

Many WCAG requirements may seem like common sense, but they need to be planned into a website or app from its first planning stages, as the implications on a project are wider than just its design or development. All content production could be affected, as will the tone of voice of the copy (and hence potentially the business).

In most circumstances, typical website audiences don’t tend to require more than a Level A rating, but certain environments have specific Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) requirements, and this is often something you’ll see in a web development brief from a healthcare or education client.
