Re: Remediation of Substantial Pages of Large Websites

WCAG conformance can only be stated for individual fully evaluated pages (including their states). I know this is looking out of sync with current web dev trends.
You may want to look at the WCAG evaluation methodology instead https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG-EM/#step5
It describes a sampling approach to cover large sites.
Best, Detlev

> A government agency would like to achieve a level AA Rating for their website per WCAG 2.0. Officially, I believe that means all their web pages would need to each meet a level AA Rating. They have over 10,000 pages, far too many to analyze and remediate. The vast majority are archival pages such as meeting minutes.
