What’s new in WCAG 2.1?

WCAG 2.0 was published a decade ago, which is an eternity in Internet years. This past June, the W3 released WCAG 2.1. These new guidelines focus on improving accessibility for users with cognitive disabilities and for users who browse websites on mobile devices, like tablets and smartphones. So what does that mean for you?

In this session, we’ll answer questions like:

What’s been added?
How do I meet these new guidelines?
What does it replace?
When does it go into effect?
How is my organization going to be affected?
How long do I have?
What resources are there for testing new WCAG 2.1 guidelines?
And any other questions you have!
