The WCAG 2.2 was released by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) on October 5, 2023.  WCAG 2.2, in common with earlier versions, aims to make digital content accessible to disabled people by providing a set of accessibility guidelines and associated techniques.

By following the guidelines, digital content creators can make their content more accessible to disabled users. Adhering to the guidelines also ensures publishers have a larger potential audience for their content.

Updates from WCAG 2.1. to WCAG 2.2. put a focus on ensuring accessible navigation and interaction for mobile apps and websites.

A summary of the changes from WCAG 2.1:
