The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are separated into four main categories stating that website content must be POUR: Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, and Robust. Jets Technologies kept these guidelines at the forefront of our mind when developing the Kids Emergency Safety website. After development of the website was completed, it underwent rigorous WCAG testing and passed with zero violations. The client received a fully compliant website helping them avoid malicious lawsuits.

One of the main solutions needed for the website was to add keyboard functionality to all the games; making sure that visitors to the site can interact with it whichever way was most convenient for them.
Jets Technologies collaborated with Southwest Strategies to ensure the website was designed, developed, and implemented correctly every step of the way. Constatly updating Southwest Strategies on progress and keeping pace with their timeline.
Many people think that WCAG compliance is just slapping an aria-label attribute to all the elements in the document. This couldn’t be further from the truth; in fact, some elements actually require an empty aria-label in favor of the Title attribute, and others require an empty Alt-text in favor of the Aria-label attribute.
