The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) is an array of 'success criteria' for web accessibility compliance. WCAG is produced and managed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) under its Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

Typical of legislative material, the technicalities of these criteria can appear confusing and convoluted. When simplified, some example of these criteria include:

Criteria Description
1.1.1 Non text content such as images have text equivalents
2.1.1 All content is accessible from the keyboard (without a mouse)
2.4.4 The purpose for links is readily understandable

a11y consultants have a deep understanding of WCAG, its benefits and limitations. We use this as the minimum benchmark for all web accessibility services to help you achieve compliance.
