Conformance to Accessibility Standards

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) outlines the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) as the accessibility standard. WCAG 2.1 sets forth requirements for designers and developers to enhance digital content accessibility for individuals with disabilities, categorizing conformance into three levels: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA.

At Advancing Wisconsin, our aim is clear—we strive to build our solutions in alignment with the W3C’s WCAG 2.1 Level AA international standard. This commitment underscores our dedication to meeting global accessibility requirements, ensuring that our digital offerings are inclusive and accessible to all. As technology evolves, so does our commitment to fostering a digitally inclusive environment for everyone.
