ONLINE ACCESSIBILITY APPLIES TO ALL WEBSITES

ACCESSIBILITY COMPLIANCE is mandatory for any online property owned and operated by a business - adding more complexity to the changing digital landscape.

How does this impact my business?

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ensures that commercial and public entities provide access and accommodation for individuals including those who have from one or more disabilities. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are a series of testing criteria to help guide website operators in creating a website that is more accessible to those with disabilities. The number of website accessibility lawsuits is increasing and all websites are at risk of being served a complaint if they do not demonstrate they are accessible to people with disabilities.

What does it take to make a website compliant?

Web programmers specializing in compliance barriers will review the code on your current site, looking for areas that would greatly benefit from ADA compliant website improvements. Understanding the goals of the website and the volume of improvements needed, an implementation plan is developed. How Customer data is stored, managed, and used is also reviewed for GDPR and CCPA compliance. Remediation of compliance barriers can span from full website creation to tweaks and changes to balance costs and timing with compliance. Recommendations to best manage customer information are provided, and a policy is developed. Following any changes, documentation of the improvements and ongoing testing and maintenance is performed.

WEBSITE COMPLIANCE IS THE NEW STANDARD

What happens when your website is not compliant?

A company’s first violation of ADA compliance can be anywhere between $55,000 and $75,000. A second violation increases to $110,000 to $150,000. When your website is not ADA compliant, you could face serious financial setbacks in fines and penalties. If your site doesn’t utilize ADA compliant website design at all, it may become more difficult to keep up with the changing standards when it’s time to switch. Having a baseline of following ADA accessibility standards will make it easier to upgrade when guidelines change. In short, your website does not perform as well on search engine rankings when you do not adhere to ADA compliant web design. Using ADA compliance solutions ensures that anyone can access the info and services on your site, not just those
