    Are Jotform forms compliant with W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0?

    Asked by culhanem on November 04, 2011 at 12:25 PM

    As you probably know, many governments and organizations around the world are mandating that webpages must conform to WCAG 2.0 standards.  My government has just instituted such a requirement.

    In order for me to continue using Jotform, the forms need to be compliant.  Are they?

    Thank you.

    I'm not sure if we do. Can you check it and let us know if you see any problems?

    Thanks for the quick response.  I ran one of our forms through http://try.powermapper.com/demo/sortsite.aspx (interested only WCAG2 conformance).  There are some issues with the <label> tag that no doubt can be easily fixed on your end?  E.g.

    "Add a LABEL tag with the FOR attribute set to the id of this control. This allows screen readers to tell the user what each control does."

    Note that all Canadian federal government websites (and all US federal sites too? If not now, soon) must now comply with WCAG2. Meaning thousands if not millions of forms....

    Thanks again.
