Complying with WCAG

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) provide specific success criteria which ensure that published web content is accessible to users with cognitive or learning disabilities, low vision, or physical disabilities on mobile devices.

WCAG Principles

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines establish four principles of accessibility.

To be accessible, web content has to be:

WCAG Success Criteria

To facilitate the implementation of the WCAG basic principles and to evaluate the accessibility level of web projects, each principle provides success criteria which are divided in categories within that principle. For example, in WCAG 2.1, the Understandable principle is divided into the Readable, Predictable, and Input Assistance categories. The Readable category in turn provides the Language of Page, Language of Parts, Unusual Words, Abbreviations, Reading Level, and Pronunciation success criteria.

Each WCAG success criterion corresponds to a conformance level of accessibility with the lowest level being Level A and the highest level being Level AAA. For example, in WCAG 2.1, the rendering of prerecorded captions success criterion is part of the Time-Based Media category of the Perceivable principle and corresponds to Level A accessibility conformance. The prerecorded sign-language interpretation success criterion is again part of the Time-Based Media category of the Perceivable principle and corresponds to Level AAA accessibility conformance.

Enhancing WCAG Accessibility for Kendo UI Components for Angular

The greater part of the Kendo UI components for Angular deliver accessibility support by meeting Section 508, WCAG 2.1, and WAI-ARIA requirements and by providing keyboard navigation options.

To elaborate on accessibility and check on the support of each success criterion that comes with the Kendo UI components for Angular, refer to the following articles which are divided based on four WCAG principles:
