The much-anticipated update to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.2 (WCAG 2.2) has been released as a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Recommendation. The announcement was made by the W3C’s Accessibility Guidelines Working Group on October 5, 2023.
Below are the new Level A and AA success criteria that are introduced in the new recommended guidelines:
The primary focus of the new criteria in WCAG 2.2 is to enhance the user experience by improving accessibility in navigation and interaction. In a recent blog post, we provided an overview of the updated guidelines, offering examples for each success criterion.
It’s worth noting that over 80% of all the Web Accessibility Laws & Policies enacted across the globe, and 100% of the accessibility laws in major economies like the USA, European Union, Canada, Australia, in the last decade are based on WCAG recommended guidelines (WCAG2.0) or a derivative of WCAG2.0. Interestingly the UK Government’s digital accessibility guidance has already updated its guidance referring to WCAG2.2 for websites and mobile apps.
