Success Criteria

5.1.1 Comply with WCAG: Web-based UA user interfaces meet the WCAG 2.0 success criteria. (Level A to meet WCAG 2.0 Level A success criteria; Level AA to meet WCAG 2.0 Level A and AA success criteria; and Level AAA to meet WCAG 2.0 Level A, AA, and AAA success criteria)
Note: This success criterion does not apply to non-web-based UA user interfaces, but does include any parts of non-web-based user agents that are web-based (e.g. help systems). However, it is recommended that developers of non-web-based user agent user interfaces follow the Guidance on Applying WCAG 2.0 to Non-Web Information and Communications Technologies (WCAG2ICT) [WCAG2ICT].


Test Procedure 1

  1. Investigate whether any of the user interface of the user agent is web-based (e.g. by exploring the UI or consulting Help documentation).
    Note: This can be a web-based user agent that is completely renedered in another user agent or just part of a user agent that is displayed in its own browser window (e.g. web-based help paged, web-based settings pages, etc.)
  2. For each of the parts of the user interface that are web-based:
    • Check that the part meets the WCAG 2.0 success criteria at the target level (A, AA or AAA).

Expected Results 1

  • Check #2 is true
