Hi

 

I had a question from my client and found it difficult to find an answer, does anyone know if SharePoint Modern Communication sites meet the WCAG 2.1 standard? 

 

They are described within the accessibility documents about the content you enter but not the site itself. Anyone have any clarity or official references?

 

Thanks,

Paul Bullock

Hi

 

I have answered my own question and found this resource: https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/industry-blog/government/2018/09/11/accessibility-conformance-repor... 

 

In the blog there is a window to the conformance reports, search under S, Page 2 for SharePoint Online that details WCAG standard testing results.

 

Thanks

Paul

Just an update to this, its now under S and on Page 3 of the list.
