Website ADA compliance has been a hot topic recently. Several large enterprise businesses and municipal organizations have been the target of law suits as a result of their website not being compliant.
ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) is a law that went into place in 1990 which states websites must be accessible by people with disabilities. The goal is to have websites that do not discriminate against those with disabilities.
In the first six months of 2018, nearly 5,000 ADA lawsuits have been filed in federal court for alleged violations. Protecting your interests is more important than ever.
Working with a lot of private enterprise, government entities and municipality clients, we have extensive experience with creating an ADA Compliant solution and continued monitoring. We make sure the site’s visual elements are visually compliant. In addition, all page headers, tags and meta data will follow compliance. We do this through automated tools for testing and we embed compliance throughout our design and development process. We will meet Section 508/WCAG2.AA (AAA compliance if requested).
Main factors for creating a complaint website:
- Visual Elements
- Site Hierarchy
- Meta Data
- Color Contrasts
- Content Elements
