Change is Afoot: What WCAG2.2, WCAG3, ..., WCAG9000? Mean for Libraries
As of October 2023, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) were officially updated to version 2.2. This new W3C recommendation introduces nine new success criteria (ranging from A to AAA) and a handful edits to existing criteria. This talk will discuss the potential implications of WCAG 2.2 for our library web content and provide potential fixes if necessary. Moreover, I will discuss how new WCAG recommendations are crafted, including some preliminary discussion and cautions regarding WCAG3 and the future of the web accessibility.
