Guidelines and Standards

W Hotels of New York aims for our website to conform to level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1 AA). We have conducted an accessibility audit of our website based on these guidelines and outlined the known issues.

Known Issues

  • Carousel navigation links need to be more descriptive and in the correct tab order.
  • The calendar used on the Open Table booking widget needs to be more descriptive when dates are selected.
  • Links to instagram users and hash tags are not always meaningful when read out of context.
  • Google Maps has not been tested and may not meet level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1 AA).

We are actively working on resolving these issues.

This website is tested using a combination of accessibility tools. Including Google Lighthouse accessibility test, axe – Web Accessibility Testing, and Monsido Web Accessibility software. This combination of tools and software results in a wide range of testing which covers the complete requirements for level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1 AA).
