Accessibility statement

Last updated on May 20th, 2021

Conformance status

In this section, we’ll cover three areas:

  1. Websites built by you in Webflow
  2. The Webflow product
  3. Webflow’s own websites and webpages

Websites built by you in Webflow

The most commonly used Webflow elements have been updated and tested for keyboard operability and screen reader support. Those elements include Tabs, Dropdown, Image, Text Link, Link Block, Button, Section, List, List Item, Collection List, Navbar, and Slider. Sites using these accessible elements conform to levels as high as WCAG 2.1 Level AA.

Ultimately, when building an accessible site, the power lies in the hands of the builder. Webflow gives you the power of HTML and CSS in a visual canvas, giving you the control to make accessible choices that generate semantic code. Our team is actively working on making sure all elements a Webflow user can use to build their site are as accessible as possible — without the need for custom workarounds — along with tools to guide users to make more accessible decisions.

Explore the list of accessible Webflow elements, and see our roadmap for making more elements accessible, in Webflow University.

We've also added a suite of features and auditing tools to help you get started with building a more accessible website. Those features and tools include text color contrast, alt text, and proper heading structure.

The Webflow product

We acknowledge our responsibility to empower disabled people to use our product.

As an organization, we’re actively building a roadmap to make accessibility improvements across our product. We’re also creating an internal training series to better educate our team, and we’re incorporating accessibility practices into our product design and development processes to make progressive and meaningful change.


Webflow’s own websites and webpages

We aim to adhere our websites — the Webflow homepage, Webflow University, our blog, and other marketing pages — to WCAG 2.1 Level AA.

Starting in January 2021, we’ve made continuous efforts to improve our website content to be more compliant with Level AA. In Webflow University, we’re continually adding transcripts to all lessons, and we’re adding alternative (alt) text to all images in articles. Lastly, we're building an internal checklist based on WCAG guidelines to help us audit all of our sites. Once the audits are complete, we’ll work to improve any sites or pages that are not up to Level AA standards.

Our accessibility efforts

In this section, we’ll cover four areas:

  1. Internal efforts at Webflow
  2. Websites built by you in Webflow
  3. The Webflow product
  4. Webflow’s own websites and webpages

Internal efforts at Webflow

Webflow is taking the following company-wide measures:

  • Audit and optimize our accessibility-related systems, processes, and practices
  • Prioritize disability inclusion in our ongoing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts and programs
  • Support and empower our disabled teammates through our Disability @ Webflow Affinity Group (AG)
  • Scale and embed accessibility efforts across the organization through our appointed Accessibility Task Force 
  • Create and scale accessibility and ableism education for all team members 
  • Prioritize accessibility accommodations for internal and external events and programming 
  • Embed accessibility and accessibility checkpoints into our product design and development processes

Websites built by you in Webflow

We plan to improve the accessibility of websites built by you in Webflow by: 

  • The creation of, and improvements to, Webflow elements that are keyboard-operable and screen reader-accessible
  • Supporting you with education, tools, and controls that help you build more accessible websites in Webflow
  • Evolving our roadmap to include more accessibility tools, features, and education

The Webflow product

We’re improving the accessibility of our product by:

  • Updating our internal design system
  • Ensuring new foundational technologies are built accessible from the start 
  • Building new features that are more accessible

Webflow’s own websites and webpages

As specified in the Conformance Status section above, we’re currently updating our existing pages to bring them up to WCAG 2.1 Level AA. We plan to share more specific information on our progress in the latter half of 2021.
