By September 23rd 2020 all Public Sector websites must be WCAG 2.1 AA compliant in order to meet The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
On July 29th we hosted an accessibility Q&A with expert Léonie Watson offering Public Sector professionals advice and guidance in meeting the WCAG 2.1 AA requirements.
The session raised many issues that Comms, HR and IT professionals are facing to ensure that the deadline is met:
PDFs & online forms are currently posing a huge challenge for organisations to conform to the WCAG 2.1 AA standards.
Automated testing of websites resulting in inconsistent answers depends heavily on the process you are using.
The government is not extending the deadline to cater for pressures of COVID-19.
This deadline is about providing equal access to government services for the 13.9 million members of the public who identify as disabled.
