If you’re not an internet guru, you may be wondering, what is ADA compliance? ADA compliance refers to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design, which states that all websites (and other electronic information) need to be accessible to individuals with disabilities.
ADA compliance can be built directly into website design and differs from other free plugins in that the coding that’s built directly into the website is accessible from all tools, including special technologies for disabled individuals. Failure to comply with ADA regulations can result in legal action taken against your business.
If your website is NOT ADA compliant, then you are liable! Here’s who needs to follow ADA requirements:
- Private employers with over 15 employees.
- State/government agencies.
- Businesses that operate for the benefit of the public.
If your website is not ADA compliant, it’s time to give a professional a call for website design services! Designers/developers typically use WCAG 2.0 guidelines to make websites ADA compliant and accessible for all individuals. Focusing on a few key aspects of accessibility, WCAG 2.0 guidelines promote digital accessibility for all individuals no matter their disability. Here are WCAG 2.0 areas of focus:
