Learn how JWP is invested in inclusive practices that comply with laws and standards such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).


JWP is committed to ensuring your videos are accessible to all of your visitors. We’re invested in inclusive practices that comply with laws and standards such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

Web accessibility is a set of inclusive practices that enable all viewers to engage fully with your content. These practices entail complying with federal laws and conforming to standards, such as the WCAG. Examples of these practices include the following:

  • Adding alt text to images
  • Creating a consistent hierarchy of content on a page
  • Maintaining color contrast
  • Including ARIA labels for non-visible text

Increasingly around the world, online video content created by an entity may be subject to legal compliance. The following table lists a few examples that are applicable to the United States.
