With new technologies emerging, it is no surprise that the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 were a bit out of date. On June 5, 2018 the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) released the WCAG 2.1 guidelines which now contain several new rules relating to the growing use of mobile devices.

The WCAG standards are comprised of multitudes of small recommendations that make your site work better with different assistive technologies that the disabled count on to access the internet. Tens to hundreds of thousands of items on your site may need to be reviewed individually to meet the WCAG 2.1 standards.

Staying on top of evolving guidelines to avoid litigation can be daunting. Regular, systematic reporting from a reputable and independent third-party reviewer is the best approach once your website is compliant. At LKCS we offer different web accessibility solutions based on your institution’s needs, web development expertise, and timeframe.
