WCAG 2.1 AA Guide for Beginners or Experts (Plain English)

For those of you who need help understanding the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), my guide is completely free and is downloadable right now without any e-mail subscription.

There is no qualification, you can download that guide and use it right now it writes everything in as plain of language as possible.

I tried to use non-technical language whenever possible it contains bullet points on what to do it has resources linked for every success criterion in WCAG.

So a success- WCAG success criterion is a requirement under these Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and these are technical standards.

So you’ve I’m sure you’ve seen the acronym referenced many times, but once you start to look at the reference material you can see it is cryptically written and it’s very technically written so it can be difficult to ascertain exactly what you need to do.

My WCAG guide is the opposite. It actually- I it doesn’t cover every last detail but it covers the base, the essence of what each success criterion is getting at it does it in plain English and it gets to the point ASAP – I don’t write any extra words that I don’t haveā€¦

And then also within each success criterion is a plain English explanation of what the success criteria is getting at.

So I’ve organized it by the by version 2.0 and then I separate I separately added the twelve additional success criteria that are found in 2.1 so you can start off with WCAG 2.0 and then once you get through with that you can work your way into 2.1.

And so it’s a really good- I spent a lot of time writing this guide and breaking down what exactly each success criterion was getting at and then I wrote them all as if I was writing a guide to myself and what exactly I would want.

And then there’s also a link to the source documentation so that if you have any questions if you need more details if you want to learn more you can easily go to the stores material which is on the W3C’s website and the W3C is the World Wide Web Consortium you can easily go to their website and read the technical standards for yourself and see if there are any exceptions that apply to you see if there are additional examples that you can read through everything is still there for you.

I don’t want to dissuade you from looking at the at the at the actual source documentation but many people when they read it they find it difficult to read and or it’s just too long or cumbersome for them to get through and they want to absorb these guidelines as quickly as possible and that’s where my guide comes into play.

So I will put a link to it down below again it’s 100% free and the and there is no e-mail subscription required.
