WCAG 2.2 Guidelines for Mobile, Web, and Beyond
In a digital age where the internet is a central part of our lives, the importance of web accessibility cannot be overstated. Accessibility ensures that people of all abilities can navigate and engage with digital content, breaking down barriers and fostering inclusivity. It’s a fundamental principle of the modern web, and at the forefront of accessibility standards is the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
WCAG is a set of internationally recognized standards that define how to make web content more accessible to individuals with disabilities. They provide a roadmap for developers, designers, and content creators to ensure that websites and applications are usable by everyone, regardless of their abilities or limitations.
We are thrilled to announce the release of WCAG 2.2, the latest milestone in the ongoing journey towards a more accessible digital world. WCAG 2.2 builds on the foundation laid by its predecessors, WCAG 2.0 and WCAG 2.1, bringing enhanced accessibility for mobile devices and users with low vision or cognitive disabilities.
