Hi @devan-skeem, What if I told you that the WCAG 2.0 recommendation by the W3C is 36 pages, printed? In addition, “How to Meet WCAG 2.0” is 44 pages and “Understanding WCAG 2.0” 230 pages. Not only that, but the accompanying Techniques and Failures for WCAG 2.0 is 780 pages, printed. There are approximately 400 Techniques and Failures. All of it is wonderful information created by some of the most knowledgeable accessibility folks available. Unfortunately it presents a sort of barrier-to-entry for folks who really just want to know what they need to do to be more accessible.

There are certain ways in which you can yourself check how accessible your website is and some of the ways are mentioned below :

  1. Unplug your mouse and/ or turn off your trackpad
  2. Turn on High Contrast Mode
  3. Turn off Images
  4. Check for Captions or Transcripts
  5. Click on Field Labels

By doing so you should be able to understand all the content as before and if you are failing in understanding the content after doing these things then your website is not accessible at all.

I hope this answers your question, happy testing!!
