WCAG 2.1 AA Checklist and Guide

ADA Book cover

Update 1: My new book, The ADA Book (link opens in a new tab) is now available on Amazon (and Amazons around the world).  This book will give you insider knowledge on the legal landscape and how web accessibility works.

Update 2: My new course, The ADA Compliance Course (link opens in new tab) is now available.  This course provides step-by-step instructions (an SOP) you can give your team on how to find (audit) and fix (remediate) the most commonly claimed accessibility issues in litigation.  This will greatly reduce your risk of being sued.

Update 3: I’ve also released a new WCAG Course in March 2023. This course organizes all WCAG 2.1 AA success criteria into lessons, has video explanations, code examples, and a sortable checklist in Excel spreadsheet format.

This course is the perfect training for your team to learn about web accessibility through the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA.
