The newest version of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) is set to roll out in September. WCAG 2.2 extends 2.1 guidelines with new and updated criteria to make web content more usable for all and improve accessibility across device types for a wide range of people with disabilities – including accommodations for blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, limited movement, speech disabilities, learning disabilities, and cognitive limitations. Learn about the new standards, why they're important, and tools and tips that will help you reach compliance.
