Website Content Accessibility Guidelines

What you need to know to make your website accessible.

ICT COMPLIANCE

As we become more reliant on technology to inform and communicate, our need for improved access grows. All ICT system components, including websites and Web applications, mobile technology, telephone systems, documents and social media need to be made accessible to everyone.

Implementing eSSENTIAL Accessibility helps many people with disabilities access online information, but does not ensure conformance with World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). To enable the highest level of usability for people with disabilities, websites must conform with WCAG and offer assistive technology.

Contact us for guidance in making accessibility a part of your development lifecycle. We will be pleased to connect you with our network of ICT compliance partners.

Coming up from the bottom left, an arrow connects 'developers' through 'authoring tools' and 'evaluation tools' to 'content' at the top. Coming up from the bottom right, an arrow connects 'users' to 'browsers, media players' and 'assistive technologies' to 'content' at the top. Below these are 'accessibility guidelines' which include 'ATAG' with an arrow pointing to 'authoring tools' and 'evaluation tools', 'WCAG' pointing to 'content', and 'UAAG' pointing to 'browsers, media players' and 'assistive technologies'. At the very bottom, 'technical specifications (HTML, XML, CSS, SVG, SMIL, etc.)' forms a base with an arrow pointing up to the accessibility guidelines.
