What should you know about WCAG?

Guidelines on the availability of web content WCAG 2.0 is a series of recommendations for website developers and website owners who tell you how to adapt your website to the needs of people with various disabilities. Internet access standards have been created to ensure and facilitate access to the Internet for everyone.

There are four main accessibility criteria:

  • perceptivity
  • functionality
  • Intelligibility
  • Solidity

Each of the rules listed contains specific guidelines, goals that developers or website owners should meet.

It should be mentioned that there are also three levels of accessibility:

  • A (single A) - must be met
    AA (double A) - should be followed
    AAA (triple A) - can be met
