WCAG Website Accessibility Guideline Fundamentals - 2019 Version

What you need to know about website accessibility guidelines

My WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guideline) Basics course is designed to provide business owners, website content managers and other non-technical professionals with a solid, base understanding, of website accessibility.

Many people use assistive technologies, such as screen readers like JAWS, to navigate websites and it is important that a website be built so that these tools will work properly. By paying attention to accessibility, you can gain more customers, make more sales and avoid legal problems.

Business owners in some states are being blindsided by civil lawsuits related to website accessibility. Some law firms have adopted a strategy of trying to squeeze settlements out of business owners through lawsuits based on loose interpretations of recent court decisions and a failure of the federal government to clarify web accessibility requirements.

The key to avoiding, and fighting, these lawsuits is knowledge! The more you know about website accessibility, assistive technologies and WCAG guidelines, and the legal justification law firms are using to file lawsuits, the better prepared you will be to avoid expensive problems.

You can't count on law firms or web accessibility consultants to give you a 100% unbiased opinion on website accessibility. Both of those groups stand to make money and agendas. There are many reputable law firms and accessibility consultants who are trustworthy and legitimately want to help you however, you need to know the basics so nobody can take advantage of you.

In this course, we will take a look at what website accessibility is, why it is important, look at the WCAG guidelines, learn how to find accessibility problems on your website and go over some of the legal issues that impact accessibility.

This course will help you acquire a solid foundation of basic knowledge that will help you avoid expensive accessibility hassles while making sure people with disabilities can use your website.
