FotoWare Compliance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines - WCAG

As of December 2020, FotoWare offers WCAG 2.0 AA compliance, both on-premises (FR16 onwards) and in FotoWare as a Service.

FotoWare WCAG adherence is implemented in the FotoWare Main interface and available to users for all operations that users who consume data on the site will need to work with the content on the site. There is no need to enable anything to make it work on your site.

A full specification of WCAG can be found on https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/
