Your daily frequent11y newsletter, brought to you by @ChrisBAshton:

Today’s newsletter is a two-article WCAG special:

  • WCAG 2.1 Checklist
    • A checklist by Raghavendra Satish Peri, an accessibility evangelist working for Deque. It lists each guideline for WCAG 2.1 A and AA compliance, along with a summary of each and a “Points to Ponder” section, containing useful tidbits like “Always provide alternative options like audio or OTP (one time password) for CAPTCHA.”.
    • It’s a long page, but not as dauntingly long as the official WCAG guidelines page, which also lacks the specifics of the “Points to Ponder” section (in favour of linking off to extensive ‘understanding’ pages, e.g. Understanding Success Criterion 1.2.1). Some people might prefer Ravhavendra’s checklist.
  • WCAG guide
    • A ‘quick reference’ guide to WCAG, built by designer Marcelo Sales. It displays each success criterion (SC) as a ‘flash card’, summarising each SC in one paragraph. There are options to filter by compliance levels A/AA/AAA, and there’s also a real-time fuzzy-matching search, so you can easily search for, say, “focus”, and see all relevant SC’s.
