Before diving into your website design, it’s important that you understand Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and which ones—if any—apply to your company’s website. For the most part, if your organization provides “public accommodation”, then your website probably needs to adhere strictly to the guidelines set forth by WCAG. These public accommodations include government entities, public spaces, employment, building codes, transportation, and telecommunication websites.
Partner with a WCAG compliance solutions and services company like Code Armours to ensure that your website is complying to industry standards, without using a cookie cutter or generic design.
There are three levels of WCAG compliance, A, AA, and AAA. AAA is what would be considered the gold star in WCAG compliance. Then, there are four separate facets of website compliance that we focus on when designing your website to be WCAG 2.0-compatible. Overall, there are 61 guidelines for websites to be completely WCAG compliant. You don’t have to follow every single one, it all depends on what services you offer and to what demographic. The most common guidelines followed include text enlargement capabilities, keyboard-only navigation, and color-sensitivity. Many websites go an extra step and ensure WCAG 2.0 AA compliance for robust and accessible content and design.
If you have an existing website that you’re ready to make WCAG compliant, let Code Armours guide you to the right guidelines and tweak your site for your desired and required WCAG accessibility. We have the right WCAG compliance solutions for your current website.
But if you’re venturing into a new website design, don’t waste time, energy, or resources building a custom website just to find out it’s not compliant with your required guidelines. Being caught outside of WCAG compliance could lead to monetary penalties against your website and company. Let Code Armours in on the ground floor and we’ll help take you to the pinnacle of compliance for your industry. Our WCAG compliance solutions will leave you with a robust and functioning web design that’s accessible to the people that need it, ensuring more customers and more business for you.
