Why WCAG exists:
WCAG was created by the W3C, or the World Wide Web Consortium, which is a global community of accessibility experts striving to make the internet as inclusive as possible. Importantly, following WCAG also helps organizations comply with applicable legal mandates like the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), and others. So how well does your web content, website, or web application conform with WCAG? Access our interactive checklist to find out.
