The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) explain how to make websites and apps accessible to people with disabilities. They outline criteria that must be met for a website to be considered accessible. As such, when it comes to achieving accessibility, the WCAG are a great place to start.

The WCAG take into account technical coding, as well as elements that affect content and design. From your IT department to your Communications, Marketing and Design teams, each should be aware of the WCAG. To help, we've created two WCAG checklists.

These WCAG checklists will help you improve the accessibility of your digital content. They've been created to help you meet WCAG 2.1 - the current version of WCAG.
