At Expedia, we're committed to being an industry leader in building accessible experiences that provides equal access to all our customers. With this responsibility, we have a goal to make our website and services inclusive to the widest possible audience regardless of visual, auditory, or mobile ability. As a result, we have not only been following the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 Opens in a new windowof the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), but have also translated those guidelines into Expedia's own ExAG guidelines. The ExAG guidelines streamline the existing WCAG guidelines and puts them into a context specific for our developers, designers, and testers alike. Lastly, within ExAG we provide rich examples within guidelines to reinforce learning and improve understanding.

Accessibility Automation Resources
Accessibility automation is the act of leveraging technology to audit user interfaces against a ruleset such as WCAG, Section 508, and other accessibility interface guidelines. With the data regarding violations, the automation engine can either generate a report or break a build process to prevent the publication of in-accessible code. This is incredibly useful for providing safeguards for projects and has been shown that accessibility automation can detect approximately ~30% of accessibility issues. At Expedia, we have put together a comprehensive guide that breaks down how accessibility automation can be utilized in both a web and a mobile application context.
