About WCAG 2.0/2.1
In June 2018, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) announced a major update to its Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), the world’s most widely accepted technical standard for digital accessibility. The new version, WCAG 2.1, expands the guidance provided in the previous iteration, WCAG 2.0, to include more coverage of mobile accessibility and provisions for people with low vision and cognitive and learning disabilities.
WCAG 2.0/2.1 are technical standards comprising twelve guidelines organized under 4 principles: perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust. For each guideline, there are testable success criteria at three levels: A, AA, and AAA. For a complete description of guidelines and success criteria visit: https://www.w3.org
