The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines / WCAG

Ensuring digital accessibility – How it works and why it matters.

Why Web Accessibility Matters

In an increasingly digital age, ensuring that your websites and mobile applications are accessible to all users—including those with disabilities—is not just beneficial; it’s essential. About 25% of adults in Europe live with a disability that impacts their digital interactions, highlighting the significant market and moral imperative for accessible design. At Quickchannel, we commit to surpassing the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) standards, enhancing inclusivity and equality across digital platforms.

Navigating the New WCAG EU Laws

With the full enforcement of the European Accessibility Act set for June 28, 2025, businesses must prepare to meet stringent new standards. This includes ensuring that digital content, from websites to mobile apps, is fully accessible. Non-compliance can lead to significant legal and financial repercussions.

Best Practices for WCAG Compliance

Adopting WCAG standards involves several best practices:

  • Regular Accessibility Audits: To identify and rectify compliance gaps.
  • Staff Training: To ensure all team members understand and implement accessibility principles.
  • User-Centric Design: Continual testing with diverse user groups to guarantee accessibility.
