A Few Global Statistics on Disability
With the growing importance of web accessibility vis-à-vis the increasing population with varying degrees of disabilities, the World Wide Consortium (W3C) created Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) to provide an actionable framework.
WCAG 2.1 is the most commonly used standard included in international accessibility laws.Watch the video to catch a quick glimpse of:
17% of the world’s population has some form of visual impairment. And 2.6% has cognitive disabilities to ensure inclusivity of people with disabilities governments across the globe have been using WCAG 2.0 guidelines as the foundation for international accessibility laws across the United States and European union. However, WCAG 2.0 is an old resource and an upgrade is needed to match up evolving technological requirements. In 2018, W3C published WCAG 2.1 and advanced version to improve accessibility across mobile devices for users with varying degrees of cognitive learning and visual impairments. It is backward compatible and accounts for modern user habits, web designs and accessibility issues. It doesn’t replace WCAG 2.0, but builds on it by focusing on mobile accessibility, low vision and cognitive and learning disabilities. There are 17 new success criteria included in WCAG 2.1, which is an extension to three of the four core principles. Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, Robust.
