Is your website accessible to people with disabilities?

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.
