Making ADA Compliant Website

These guidelines are made by W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) and they are also known as WCAG Standards. From July 2018 WCAG 2.1 become W3C Recommendation. There are 3 levels recommended and they are the following:

  • Level A – in this level you must satisfy all of the required conditions.
  • Level AA – for this level first you need to be compliant to Level A and in this level, you should satisfy all of the required conditions.
  • Level AAA – for this level you need to satisfy all Level AA guidelines first, then you may satisfy as many guidelines as possible.

If you want your website to be ADA Compliant you should satisfy at least Level A and Level AA guidelines.
