Conformance Status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities.

There are three levels of conformance within the four success criteria principles Perceivable, Operable, Understandable and Robust:

Level A,

Level AA, and

Level AAA.

The standard for web accessibility globally is WCAG 2.1 Level A & AA.

The Vita Coco website is aiming to be conformant with WCAG 2.1 Level A & AA, so that:

  • All images have Alt-text provisions.
  • The user can zoom in on the website content up to 500% without screen visibility loss.
  • Assistive technology users will be able to understand and access links, lists and forms, although some still require optimization (see below).
  • The heading structure is optimized for use with assistive technology.
  • Contrast ratios for text and non-text elements are accessible.
  • Keyboard-only navigation with the correct focus order is enabled.

The web platform is expected to be compatible with the following:

The use of up-to-date versions of JAWS screen readers and browser versions of Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, Opera, IE 11 and with assistive technology on recent versions of operating systems (desktop and mobile) mac OS X, Microsoft Windows & Android, and Apple iOS.

The Vita Coco website platform cannot be expected to be compatible with:

  • Any browsers that are older than 3 major versions or assistive technology and mobile operating systems that are older than 5 years.
