Authorized Arabic Translation WCAG2.1

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 covers a wide range of recommendations for making Web content more accessible. Following these guidelines will make content more accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities, including accommodations for blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity, and combinations of these, and some accommodation for learning disabilities and cognitive limitations; but will not address every user need for people with these disabilities. These guidelines address the accessibility of web content on desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. Following these guidelines will also often make Web content more usable to users in general.

In January 2020, Mada, a W3C member, sent a letter of intent to lead the Authorized Arabic Translation of WCAG 2.1 as Lead Translation Organization (LTO) following the Policy for Authorized W3C Translations with support of W3C GCC Chapter.

As per policy for Authorized W3C Translations, we’re looking for Arabic-speaking reviewers to join the Reviewers’ Committee members. If you are interested, please send you intent to innovation@mada.org.qa.

This informative page has all the information related to the project.
