ADA & Website Accessibility

Website accessibility for all.

We help organizations navigate their path to online accessibility, giving more people access to their products and services.

What's the Law?

Designed to be accessible for all

The Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) was signed into law in 1990 and prohibits discrimination “on the basis of disability in the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations” offered by businesses.

The U.S. Department Justice (“DOJ”) has taken the position that the ADA applies to websites, and that to avoid illegal discrimination a website must be designed to be accessible through and compatible with electronic screen reader technology commonly used by blind and visually impaired persons.

What does this mean? All websites can, and should be ADA complaint.

ADA Standards

Keeping it simple

Lacking clear standards or compliance regulations, the Dept of Justice and others refer to the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG). The guidelines come in three degrees (A, AA, AAA).

The standards break down to 4 basic principles: Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, Robust. Refer to the WCAG 2.1 for all details.

There are three different levels of compliance: Level A, Level AA and Level AAA.

ADA + Website Accessibility

What we do

We help organizations navigate their path to online accessibility, by giving more people access to their products and services.

Performing an ADA audit takes time, but allows us to identify problematic and inaccessible parts of your website.

From there, we devise a plan that references the WCAG guidelines and accounts for Level AA or Level AAA compliance standards depending on your needs. We aim to eliminate problematic areas and achieve an accessible website for everyone.

Feel free to review our Accessibility Statement.
