Is Your website ADA Compliant?

Posted by /

ada compliance
Title III of the ADA has been interpreted by US courts to apply to websites since January 2018.
For  websites to be ADA compliant, they need to be accessible.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines are organized around four principles:

Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, Robust

Perceivable means that the information and content is presented and available to everyone, including with persons with disabilities.
Operable means that the website interface does not require interaction that persons with disabilities cannot perform.
Understandable means that both the information and operation of the user interface must be readily understandable to everyone (make everything simple, provide clear instructions).
Robust means that your website is accessible through a wide variety of user agents and technologies such as various screen readers and browsers.
Failing to comply with the ADA means your business is susceptible to lawsuits, and it’s common for attorneys to seek out non-compliant businesses both in the physical and digital space.
The most likely industries impacted are the following:
  • Restaurants
  • Property Management
  • Real Estate
  • Healthcare
  • Finance
  • Government sites
Sites that we have developed in the last 3 years are MOSTLY compliant. But to be sure, you can request a site scan and fix as it is your responsibility.

The Internet boom of the 90’s prompted her to refine her skills in web design instead of print publishing, and she quickly established herself as one of the top designers in Westchester and and Fairfield Counties, establishing a loyal following of clients.
