Web Accessibility Wizard

This wizard consolidates all your WCAG 2.0 queries into the one, easy to navigate search result.

Captions are provided for all prerecorded audio content in synchronized media, except when the media is a media alternative for text and is clearly labeled as such.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
An alternative for time-based media or audio description of the prerecorded video content is provided for synchronized media, except when the media is a media alternative for text and is clearly labeled as such.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
Information, structure, and relationships conveyed through presentation can be programmatically determined or are available in text.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
When the sequence in which content is presented affects its meaning, a correct reading sequence can be programmatically determined.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
Instructions provided for understanding and operating content do not rely solely on sensory characteristics of components such as shape, size, visual location, orientation, or sound.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
Color is not used as the only visual means of conveying information, indicating an action, prompting a response, or distinguishing a visual element.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
If any audio on a Web page plays automatically for more than 3 seconds, either a mechanism is available to pause or stop the audio, or a mechanism is available to control audio volume independently from the overall system volume level.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
All functionality of the content is operable through a keyboard interface without requiring specific timings for individual keystrokes, except where the underlying function requires input that depends on the path of the user's movement and not just the endpoints. Note 1: This exception relates to the underlying function, not the input technique. For example, if using handwriting to enter text, the input technique (handwriting) requires path-dependent input but the underlying function (text input) does not. Note 2: This does not forbid and should not discourage providing mouse input or other input methods in addition to keyboard operation.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
If keyboard focus can be moved to a component of the page using a keyboard interface, then focus can be moved away from that component using only a keyboard interface, and, if it requires more than unmodified arrow or tab keys or other standard exit methods, the user is advised of the method for moving focus away. Note: Since any content that does not meet this success criterion can interfere with a user's ability to use the whole page, all content on the Web page (whether it is used to meet other success criteria or not) must meet this success criterion. See Conformance Requirement 5: Non-Interference.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
For each time limit that is set by the content, at least one of the following is true: Turn off: The user is allowed to turn off the time limit before encountering it; or Adjust: The user is allowed to adjust the time limit before encountering it over a wide range that is at least ten times the length of the default setting; or Extend: The user is warned before time expires and given at least 20 seconds to extend the time limit with a simple action (for example, "press the space bar"), and the user is allowed to extend the time limit at least ten times; or Real-time Exception: The time limit is a required part of a real-time event (for example, an auction), and no alternative to the time limit is possible; or Essential Exception: The time limit is essential and extending it would invalidate the activity; or 20 Hour Exception: The time limit is longer than 20 hours.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
For moving, blinking, scrolling, or auto-updating information, all of the following are true: Moving, blinking, scrolling: For any moving, blinking or scrolling information that (1) starts automatically, (2) lasts more than five seconds, and (3) is presented in parallel with other content, there is a mechanism for the user to pause, stop, or hide it unless the movement, blinking, or scrolling is part of an activity where it is essential; and Auto-updating: For any auto-updating information that (1) starts automatically and (2) is presented in parallel with other content, there is a mechanism for the user to pause, stop, or hide it or to control the frequency of the update unless the auto-updating is part of an activity where it is essential.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
Web pages do not contain anything that flashes more than three times in any one second period, or the flash is below the general flash and red flash thresholds.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
A mechanism is available to bypass blocks of content that are repeated on multiple Web pages.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
Web pages have titles that describe topic or purpose.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
If a Web page can be navigated sequentially and the navigation sequences affect meaning or operation, focusable components receive focus in an order that preserves meaning and operability.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
The purpose of each link can be determined from the link text alone or from the link text together with its programmatically determined link context, except where the purpose of the link would be ambiguous to users in general.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
The default human language of each Web page can be programmatically determined.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
When any component receives focus, it does not initiate a change of context.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
Changing the setting of any user interface component does not automatically cause a change of context unless the user has been advised of the behavior before using the component.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
If an input error is automatically detected, the item that is in error is identified and the error is described to the user in text.
  • WCAG type: Success Criteria
