ADA Accessibility Compliance: Expand Your Reach and Avoid Lawsuits

Firstly, we are not attorneys and this is not legal advice.

ADA website accessibility is the requirement by the Americans With Disabilities Act to make websites accessible by the disabled. The Supreme Court of the United States upheld a lower District Court ruling that websites are “places of public accommodation” and therefore subject to ADA accessibility provisions.

A Two-Prong Approach

We have a two-prong approach to making websites ADA accessible.

The quick solution is to place an “overlay” or “widget” on the website. This solution dramatically increases the website’s accessibility without reprogramming the existing code and will increase compliance with WCAG 2.1  ATAG 2.0  ADA Section 508 requirements.

Some of the ADA accessibility compliance issues include:

  • Keyboard Navigation
  • Different Cursor Sizes
  • Contrast
  • Text Size Changer
  • Desaturate Colors
  • Highlight Links
  • Legible Fonts
  • Page Reader
  • And more…

The long-term solution requires code-level remediation. Our team can assess any website and determine what code issues exist and then fix them. This is a longer and more expensive process but will remove a company’s dependence on using an overlay or widget. There are also tax credits available for improving website accessibility.
