What is accessibility?

What does this mean? (Why is accessibility important?)

Web content, which includes documents on your website, needs to be accessible. This means that disabled users must be able to navigate your website, forms and PDFs without human help.

What is the law?

According to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) by January 1, 2021, all designated public sector organizations and large organizations’ (more than 50 people) websites and web content must conform with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA.

What is WCAG?

With the common goal of providing an international, single, shared standard for web content accessibility, WCAG was developed by the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

These guidelines help make web content more accessible to people with disabilities. This includes text, images, and sounds, as well as technical code that defines structure, presentation, etc.

Do PDFs have to be compliant?

PDFs are often overlooked with respect to accessibility. Nevertheless, they must still be compliant with WCAG.

PDF files tend to be produced by someone other than the website developers or administrators. They also represent a huge volume of the documents that site visitors use every day.

What are the success criteria established by WCAG?
Perceivable
Users must be able to perceive the information being presented (ie, cannot be invisible to all of their senses).
Operable
Users must be able to operate the interface and cannot require an interaction that the user cannot perform.
Understandable
Information and operation of the user interface cannot be beyond their understanding.
Robust
Content must be interpreted reliability by a wide variety of user agents. As technology and user agents evolve, content must remain accessible.
