The important thing to remember is that level AAA is the highest conformance level.
However, the average website doesn’t need to meet these requirements.
Here are some things to remember when striving for a conformance level.
Level A conformance has a minimal effect on website accessibility.
While this level enables screen readers to access a website, it doesn’t help your website comply with DOJ or lawyers’ standards.
Level A is the most basic conformance level in web accessibility.
If you only comply with Level A, you’re most likely non-compliant with the ADA, creating barriers for disabled users and customers.
Level AA gives you medium conformance, but this is what most businesses strive for.
This level meets Level A’s criteria and more while allowing you to choose a flexible design for your website.
Level AA is not too light, nor does it restrict you from making an aesthetically pleasing website.
Level AAA is the highest level of conformance.
However, this level is the most restrictive regarding your website’s interactive components.
Thus, your site’s design and functionality might be affected.
Additionally, the W3C doesn’t recommend conforming to level AAA.
It is because some content cannot satisfy all level AAA criteria.
Simply put, some requirements may be difficult to attain.
