After several delays, W3C officially published the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 on October 5th, 2023! WCAG 2.2 builds upon WCAG 2.0 and 2.1. This means that the guidelines are mostly the same, with some new additional guidelines.
What’s new with WCAG 2.2?
WCAG 2.2 adds nine new success criteria. W3C also removed the previous criterion 4.1.1 Parsing from WCAG 2.2 because it is now considered obsolete.
Because WCAG 2.2 is now official, W3C recommends it as the new official web standard. WeCo can help your website, software, or mobile app become WCAG 2.2 compliant! Contact us or reach out to Client Relations at [email protected] to learn more.
