This event has passed.

Overview

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are an internationally recognised set of recommendations for improving web accessibility. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is currently preparing to publish version 2.2 of WCAG and a working draft is available now.

WCAG 2.2 builds on WCAG 2.1 by adding 9 new success criteria and an existing criterion has changed from Level AA to Level A. This extension of WCAG aims to better reflect the experience of people with disabilities by improving accessibility guidance for users with low vision, cognitive and learning disabilities and improving mobile accessibility.

WCAG 2.2 was scheduled for release in November 2020 but is now expected to become the official standard in summer 2021. With these changes soon approaching, this session aims to help you understand WCAG 2.2. and what these changes mean for your website.

This is an essential session for anyone wanting to reach the widest audience with inclusively designed digital products and services, including e-commerce teams, designers, developers, product owners and management teams from all sectors that have an awareness of WCAG and why it is important to create inclusive digital services.

Our session will include the following:

  • Adopting WCAG 2.2 from 2.1 and how this affects UK Accessibility Regulations
  • Outline of the WCAG 2.2 Success Criteria
  • WCAG 2.2 practical examples and best practices

Join us on Global Accessibility Awareness Day 2021, May 20th 2021 at 10am for an hour long session, with the opportunity for questions at the end.

A Zoom link will be sent to you following registration.
