WCAG is the acronym for the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, defined by W3C.org. WCAG 2.1 is the latest version of these guidelines, published in 2018.
There are three levels of WCAG compliance guidelines, known as A, AA and AAA. A is the most basic level of accessibility compliance, AAA is the most comprehensive level, but is not always possible or practical to meet every single requirement.
WCAG 2.1 AA is a requirement by law for public websites in some jurisdictions. It offers reasonably comprehensive support for users with disabilities.
As well as being a legal requirement, it is generally good practice to meet as many WCAG compliance guidelines as possible, to ensure the best experience for all your website users.
No, the ReachDeck Toolbar helps to make your content more available to your visitors. But your technical and on-page content must be accessible and usable too. That’s why we no longer provide the ReachDeck Toolbar (previously Browsealoud) on its own.
Since its creation our thinking has been enlightened through our extensive work in the industry. As such, the ReachDeck Toolbar is now part of a complete digital inclusion solution. True accessibility involves compliance with best practice such as WCAG. And a truly inclusive website will use content that can be easily understood and perceived. ReachDeck’s Auditor and Editor helps you to work towards these. Whilst the Toolbar complements your inclusive efforts. It provides your visitors with choice in how they interact with your content. Helping you to go above and beyond on your journey to digital inclusion.
