Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1
Sports Illustrated Shop strives to ensure that all pages on its website meet W3C WAI’s most recent Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1), Levels A and AA. These guidelines outline four main principles that state that sites should be:
- Perceivable - Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive
- Operable - User interface components and navigation must be operable
- Understandable - Information and the operation of user interface must be understandable
- Robust - Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies
This website uses accessibility assistant toolbar to allow users to customize the accessibility settings based on their needs. This tool helps users with access needs to adjust any web page so that it can be consumed irrespective of disability of the user.
