Company websites must meet WCAG 2.0 guidelines, these guidelines are set by the World Wide Web Consortium as an international standard to make websites accessible for the widest range of individuals to use.
WCAG 2.0 guidelines are intended to help provide equal access to websites for individuals with disabilities. The standards, for example, provide text replacements for images, ensure content is written in clear language and the site is easily navigable with a keyboard. Failing to follow the WCAG 2.0 guidelines can result in serious legal consequences.
