ADA Compliance Did You Know? The ADA Applies to Websites, Too.

The goal of the Americans with Disabilities Act is to make the world easier to navigate for people with disabilities—and the online world is no different. If you’ve never given thought to how people with hearing, visual, or motor disabilities navigate your site, it’s time to start. With website-related ADA lawsuits on the rise, it’s never been more important that your website be ADA compliant. It’s a big task that requires constant updates and monitoring—and we can help.

What Does it Mean to Be ADA Compliant?

If you don’t have a disability, it can be easy to take your website’s user experience for granted. But for people with hearing, visual, or motor disabilities, ADA compliance is a crucial part of helping them get to the content they want or need quickly and easily. For other users, the experience on your website won’t change a bit.

An ADA Compliant Site Will:

  • Integrate smoothly with the most popular accessibility software

  • Structures the coding of the site to create a simpler interface for those who need it

  • Enable users to easily adjust font sizes and screen contrast for easier viewing

  • Reduce animations and other flashy graphics for an improved user experience

  • Enable users to easily navigate the site with keyboard strokes alone
