Some reflections after two years. Progress is slow, but steady. Personally I would invest into automatic testing solutions to monitor some basics, but that’s probably not possible before stakeholders, politicians and organizations really understand the impacts.
Website owners are responsible for use of third party widgets, plugins and more. Before using them they should check if they conform to WCAG, otherwise their site will not conform either. Checking for accessibility statement of the third party may reveal huge problems with their product’s future.
Another reflection on the business impacts of making things accessible. Investing in accessibility now will for sure make commercial advantage for us as people or companies. It’s not only the right thing to do, it also makes sense commercially.
Finding errors and failures is quite simple. Finding their solutions not so much. Audits should in my opinion provide with specific solutions that are not vague and are totally actionable. Otherwise we need to call in other experts to translate them.
