Web Content Accessibility on Corsizio (WCAG)

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, WCAG, are an internationally-recognised standard created by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and considered to be the benchmark for website accessibility. WCAG provides a set of recommendations for making Web content more accessible, primarily for people with disabilities, but also for all other users, especially when using small mobile devices.

Companies and individuals who provide web sites, web applications, or online web services may apply WCAG voluntarily or they may be mandated to do so by their organization and get WCAG certification.

WCAG on Corsizio

Here at Corsizio, we apply WCAG voluntarily, as follows.

In order for your customers to perform the online registration function for one of your events, only the registration form is required and it is fully accessible. This means:

  • The public registration forms that Corsizio produces are easy to read with proper color contrast for the different pieces of text.
  • The form fields on public registration forms are fully navigatable using the keyboard and have the proper associated text labels.

Corsizio's auto-generated portal site and event pages are optional, and not required to be used by you for the purpose of collecting registrations. If you choose to use them, please be aware that they have some accessibility features built-in as well, but they may not have all of the accessibility features that your organization requires. (There are different accessibility levels, A, AA, AAA, which contain different website features.)

Normally, if you have specific or strict requirements for how you display your content to your audience, you would use your own website to feature your event calendar and event pages, so that you can fully control how you meet your particular needs.

In addition:

  • Our platform features responsive design, where forms and pages naturally orient and re-size to different screen sizes.

Many other WCAG guidelines don't apply to our service, such as audio and video captions and other principles that apply to them.
