Amasty keeps track of its customers' needs, and that's why we started turning our extensions WCAG&ADA-compliant. What is it about?
WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) are considered a benchmark for web accessibility. Simply put, WCAG is a globally recognized set of technical guidelines that define how you should operate to ensure that your digital content is accessible to people with disabilities.
ADA compliance states almost the same thing: all electronic and information technology (e.g., websites) must be accessible to people with disabilities.
The theoretical part is over. So what have we managed to do? A specific set of extensions got an upgrade and received enhanced WCAG&ADA compliance:
- Google Invisible reCaptcha
- Product Labels
- Mega Menu
- Improved Layered Navigation
- GDPR and Cookie Consent
- Custom Form
- Social Login
All of the above extensions have been aligned with Adobe accessibility guidelines. It means that all elements are now adjusted for use by people regardless of their abilities. People of varying ranges of hearing, movement, vision, and cognitive abilities can use these extensions without any difficulty.
We are willing to share more WCAG&ADA-compliant extensions with you very soon, and while our development team is working on it, you can share your suggestions on the modules you want to enhance in the comments below.
