WCAG 2.1

WCAG 2.1 published as a recommendation of the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) in June 2018. WCAG 2.1 extends WCAG 2.0 adding further provisions in the areas of low vision, and cognitive and learning disabilities. The standards also emphasise improving accessibility for users who browse web pages using mobile devices.

There are other ICT (Information and Communications Technology) guidelines that are based on WCAG 2.0 as detailed below. Compliance with WCAG 2.1 level AA is equivalent to, or improves on, compliance with WCAG 2.0 level AA.

Section 508

Section 508 is the US standard for accessible ICT. It is part of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973. In January 2017 the US Access Board published a final rule to update Section 508 standards in response to market trends and innovations, such as the convergence of technologies. The refresh also harmonizes these requirements with other guidelines and standards both in the U.S. and abroad, including standards issued by the European Commission and with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.0 Level AA. Therefore, web questionnaires created in Snap are compliant with Section 508 Standards.

EN 301-549

EN 301-549 is the European standard for accessible ICT. It is based on the earlier WCAG 2.0 guidelines. The 38 success criteria which made up the WCAG 2.0 level A, AA & AAA recently added 12 more success criteria which make up the WCAG 2.1 level A & AA. Currently EN 301-549 is based on WCAG 2.0 but will eventually migrate to include 2.1 at some point.
