#574 Wave: Accessibility evaluator

Since 2018 there has been legislation and guidelines introduced to direct web content to be as accessible as possible and new guidelines were introduced.

One of the key parts of the Government guidance (see here and here) is that digital services should meet level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1)

WAVE is a website developed by WebAim to enable a quick evaluation of websites and digital pages and how they perform against these standards. It identifies potential issues in context on your website or page.
