WCAG 2.0 Guidelines
Kelly and Her Camera is fully aware of the WCAG 2.0 Guidelines and working toward 100% compliance. With so many images on the website and this being a one-woman show, it is coming a bit slowly. Equal accessibility is something prioritized and valued. All new material is WCAG 2.0 compliant and my goal is to have complete compliance before 2020.
