I found this Accessibility Checker that can tell you what issues are on your site: https://www.powermapper.com/products/sortsite/checks/accessibility-checks/There's also this website that has a detailed reference to Web WCAG: https://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG21/quickref/I have 2 websites that need to be WCAG compliant so I'm checking them with the Accessibility Checker and then going from there!
