Numerous certifications for renowned Austrian organisations

In recent months of 2021, the websites of several renowned public and university institutions and larger companies have been awarded the WACA seal of certification. This shows that the market has recognised the importance of an official certificate for digital accessibility and that public institutions subject to the Austrian Web Accessibility Act (WZG) in particular are having their websites tested and certified by an independent body. In the course of the often complex certification process, websites are significantly improved in terms of accessibility. The WACA certificate thus also helps to make the Internet generally more user-friendly and accessible to everyone.

Congratulations to those responsible, but especially to the developers! Here is a list of the recipients:
