All technology, including websites, must grant barrier-free access to people with disabilities.
For websites, that means meeting the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 standards.
WCAG requires web content to be:
- Perceivable: Everything can be perceived in more than one way. For example, if someone cannot see, written content can be read by a screen reader.
- Operable: Everything can be operated in more than one way. For example, if someone cannot use a mouse, they can navigate using the keyboard.
- Understandable: Everything can be easily understood. For example, an error message points out the location of your mistake and how to fix it.
- Robust: Everything can roll up to the newest hardware and not break.
