What should be known about WCAG?

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 are a set of recommendations for website creators and owners on how to adapt their sites to the needs of individuals with various disabilities. Internet accessibility standards have been created to ensure and facilitate access to the internet for everyone.

There are four main accessibility criteria:

  • Perceivability
  • Operability
  • Understandability
  • Robustness

Each of the mentioned principles includes specific guidelines and goals that developers or website owners should meet.

It is important to note that there are also three levels of accessibility:

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

Here are some important guidelines:

Multimedia: Include a textual transcript describing video content, ensure keyboard accessibility for video and audio players, add captions, provide a toggle switch for on/off and volume control, and include alternative descriptions for graphics.

Text: Provide settings for adjusting font size and contrast, present page content in clear and understandable language, format texts as clearly as possible, use paragraphs, and ensure descriptive link texts.

Other elements such as tables, forms, and buttons: Proper formatting is crucial..
