At ConCom Web Design, we believe everyone should be able to access and enjoy the web, regardless of their abilities. That's why we're committed to building accessible web experiences for all.
Accessibility is more than just a nice-to-have. Ensuring everyone has equal access to information and opportunities online is essential. That's why the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has developed the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). WCAG is an international standard that defines how to make web content more accessible to people with disabilities.
The latest version of WCAG, WCAG 2.2, is scheduled to be released in 2023. WCAG 2.2 builds on the previous versions of WCAG and includes new guidelines that will make web content more accessible to people with a broader range of disabilities.
Here are some of the new guidelines in WCAG 2.2:
- Focus indicators: Web pages must have a focus indicator that shows users where they are on the page. This is important for people who use screen readers or other assistive technologies.
- Minimum click target size: Links and other interactive elements must be large enough for people to click on them easily. This is important for people with limited mobility.
- Time-based media: Web pages must have a way for users to control the playback speed of time-based media, such as videos and audio files. This is important for people who have difficulty processing information quickly.
These are just a few of the new guidelines in WCAG 2.2. If you're not sure how to make your web content more accessible, we can help. We offer various accessibility services, including auditing, remediation, and training.
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the web. That's why we're committed to making our web designs accessible to all.
