Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Accessibility First is partially conformant with WCAG 2.2 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.

Additional accessibility considerations

Although our goal is WCAG 2.2 Level AA conformance, we have also applied some Level AAA Success Criteria (SC): Images of text are only used for decorative purposes (SC 1.4.9). Everything can be done with a keyboard (SC 2.1.3). Users understand what each link will do (SC 2.4.9). Content is organized in section, so users can orient themselves (SC 2.4.10). Focus is not obscured and its appearance meets SC 2.4.13. Expanded form of abbreviations are provided (SC 3.1.4). The purpose of controls and key information can be identified by the users (SC 1.3.6)
