To help you improve digital inclusion, we asked tech experts and business leaders this question for their best advice. From creating guidance for all digital assets to providing a blueprint for future design, there are several ways the new version of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 3.0) can further improve digital inclusion.
Here eight ways the new version of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines will further improve digital inclusion:
The new version of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines are geared towards opening up access and they are doing so through maintaining and improving upon web content’s longevity. The emphasis in the guidelines to work on continued maintenance of the rules illustrates that digital inclusion is only going to continue to expand. Being able to adjust and being prepared for those adjustments shows a dedication to sustaining web content over longer periods of time for a wider audience. Web accessibility supports digital inclusion and allows everybody to participate and interact in a digital environment. We should ensure that the digital world is accessible for everyone.
