One of the accessibility challenges is how we go about turning good intentions into reality.

This checklist aims to make accessibility more manageable by breaking it down accessibility into a series of tasks related to project roles.

The list is based on the WCAG 2.1 AA success criteria. Please note that 'Avoid Jargon' is a level AAA requirement, but is included because it should be AA. 'Avoid distractions' is not a WCAG requirement, but should be.

If you have any suggestions on how to improve this checklist please contact Andrew Normand, Web Accessibility Lead,
