Website Accessibility

WCAG 2.0 accessibility standards

WCAG 2.0 refers to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.0. These guidelines provide a set of standards and recommendations for making websites accessible to all users, including those with disabilities. We aim to comply with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

In simpler terms, WCAG 2.0 is a set of rules that help ensure websites are designed in a way that makes them easy to use and navigate for people with different abilities. It focuses on making websites more accessible for people who might have visual impairments, hearing difficulties, motor disabilities, or other limitations that affect their ability to use a website.

The importance of following WCAG 2.0 accessibility standards is to make sure that everyone, regardless of their abilities, can access and use a website without facing barriers or exclusion. It promotes inclusivity, making sure that people with disabilities can browse the web, access information, and engage with online services just like anyone else.

For example, WCAG 2.0 suggests things like providing alternative text for images so that screen readers can describe the images to visually impaired users, adding captions or transcripts for videos to help those who have difficulty hearing, using color contrasts that are easier to read for people with vision impairments, and creating easy-to-use navigation and forms for users who may have motor disabilities.

By adhering to WCAG 2.0 standards, website creators are ensuring that their websites are accessible to a wider range of people, including older individuals who may have specific accessibility needs. It helps create a more inclusive and user-friendly online environment, where everyone can fully participate and benefit from the content and services available on websites.
