WCAG 2.1 is the new recommendation for organizations looking to address web accessibility. It adds one new guideline and 17 new success criteria that focus primarily on touch inputs that did not exist when WCAG 2.0 was released in 2008. WCAG 2.1 builds on WCAG 2.0 to further consider people using mobile devices, people with low vision, people with cognitive disabilities, and people using speech recognition software. In this session, learn about WCAG 2.1, these new success criteria, and how they might affect your websites.
