Who Does WCAG Apply To?
Most laws – like Section 508 and other international laws – mention WCAG 2.0 compliance.
For now, 2.0 is the required minimum that most organizations are encouraged to meet.
Only if a law explicitly states that web developers have to adapt to the newest WCAG version, do you need to make your content WCAG 2.1 compliant.
The WCAG 2.1 levels of compliance for video accessibility remain the same as 2.0. So for example, if you achieve WCAG 2.0 Level AA compliance for captioning and audio description, you have also achieved 2.1 Level AA compliance for these aspects, but you may not have achieved overall 2.1 Level AA for the entirety of your website.
