indeed, they take a practical approach, translating WCAG 2 into a manageable
check list and adding some practical examples and own interpretations where

I don't think they translate each and every detail of WCAG2, but it seems to
be well received.

It's not an official label by the way, although many government agencies ask
them to audit websites.

Best regards,


PS: on a somewhat related note, you might be interested in the AEGIS and its
OAEG group, they have compiled a list of accessibility standards and guidelines

Thank you. Do I understand it correctly that Anysurfer partially
implements WCAG 2 with interpretation on some of the guidelines?

E.g. this guideline
references WCAG 2.2.1 success criteria but has some other
requirements/interpretations as well.
