Day 86: WCAG

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) explains how to make web content more accessible for those with disabilities. There are multiple guidelines, and each guideline has certain testable criteria, divided into 3 levels (A, AA, and AAA). These levels have increasing complexity when it comes to implementation.

For most government websites, certain guidelines that fall under levels A and AA must be followed, such as keyboard accessibility, and contrast between text and background.
