Web Accessibility Checklists for WCAG Compliance

These role-based checklists are intended to help digital teams evaluate and audit their website to meet accessibility compliance.

Web accessibility matters.

From banking to shopping and other essential services, the web has become a vital part of our day-to-day lives.

However, for roughly 20% of Americans, temporary, age-related, and lifelong disabilities impact their ability to receive the same service we've come to expect. Enter web accessibility, the practice of creating and delivering inclusive content, functionality, and digital experiences.

By following the latest web accessibility standards and best practices, organizations stand to mitigate risk of costly litigation and remediation efforts, improve usability and conversions, and demonstrate social responsibility.

That's why C2 has updated these checklists to reflect the most widely used set of American Disability Act (ADA) Section 508 standards and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) including WCAG 2.1, and the most recently drafted WCAG 2.2, Level AA standards.

C2's WCAG compliance checklists include:
