In January 2017, Section 508 adopted the WCAG 2.0 Level AA success criteria, meaning any federal agency (or their respective subcontractors) must ensure their digital content complies with Level AA of the WCAG 2.0. Additionally, the Department of Education (Office of Civil Rights), the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Department of Transportation, U.S. District Courts, and various State Courts have consistently demonstrated the enforcement of website accessibility using WCAG standards as the benchmark. Consistently, established legal precedents require conformance with WCAG guidelines to fulfill obligations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). As a globally adopted set of standards, it is recommended that any business, education institution, federal, state and local government agencies with an online presence comply with WCAG, ensuring their platforms are accessible to users of all abilities. Without WCAG compliance, these institutions, agencies, and organizations face the risk of costly web accessibility lawsuits.
