PlayCasinos Accessibility Commitment

We firmly believe in the importance of providing an inclusive website to all users. To uphold our accessibility commitment, we continuously improve our site and conduct audits every 2 months to remove barriers. Our goal is to ensure that people of all abilities can successfully navigate and engage with our content.

Understanding Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)

The WCAG is a set of recognized standards for making online content more accessible. To give you an idea of what this entails, here’s a simplified explanation of the most recent key points:

  • Perceivable: Information and user interface should be presented in a perceivable manner. The process here includes providing text alternatives for non-text content, such as images, videos, and audio.
  • Operable: Users should be able to interact with all functionalities using different methods, such as keyboard navigation or voice commands.
  • Understandable: The content should be clear and comprehensive to all users. To achieve this, the website should use plain language, organize content logically, and offer clear instructions.
  • Robust: A variety of user agents, including assistive technologies, should be able to interpret the content.

These most recent updates, WCAG 2.2, include specific success criteria to address users with cognitive or learning disabilities, mobile accessibility, and more. Here are some of the key areas covered by the new guidelines:

  • Cognitive Accessibility: Simple language, clear instructions, and reduced cognitive load.
  • Mobile Accessibility: Touch gestures, responsive design, and screen orientation.
  • Adaptive Content: Customizable text sizes and colour contrasts.
  • Input Modalities: Including touch, voice, and keyboard navigation.

WCAG Accessibility Levels

There are three levels (A, AA and AA) and each represents a different degree of accessibility:

Level A: Minimum Compliance

This level addresses the most basic online accessibility features. Some compliance criteria include:

  • Alternative text for all non-text content.
  • All functionalities are accessible via a keyboard.
  • Content can be parsed by assistive technologies.

Level AA: Standard Compliance

Meeting Level AA standards means that the content is more accessible to a wider range of people. Some of the criteria include:

  • Captions for all pre-recorded audio.
  • Text contrast ratio of at least 4.5:1.
  • Accessible navigation mechanisms.

Level AAA: Enhanced Compliance

This level offers the most inclusive experience for all users. A few of the criteria are:

  • Sign language interpretations for pre-recorded audio.
  • Text contrast ratio of at least 7:1.
  • Customizable user interfaces to accommodate various needs.
