The policy says that we need to follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
We often call these WCAG.
WCAG are a list of the rules for making online content accessible for everyone.
There are different levels of WCAG that we need to use.
It has extra rules about accessibility for:
- mobile phones
- people with low vision
- people with cognitive disability – they have a disability that affects how they think.
We want to use WCAG 2.1 AA whenever we can.
It’s a helpful starting point for:
- understanding WCAG
- how to put the rules into practice.
