Why is an ADA Compliant Website Important?
There's a myth that web design and user experience suffers when websites are built (or rebuilt) to comply with the ADA. Being ADA compliant mandates that websites must be accessible to people with various disabilities or impairments. It's also a myth that websites lose perfect, user-centric functionality when they become ADA-compliant.
ADA compliance takes care of the needs of every site visitor to have an optimal level of usability. Many people surfing the internet have a permanent disability or a short-term impairment. Many people have age-related conditions that make using the internet challenging. They’re not alone – there are about 20% of the U.S. population has a named disability.
Something is going on right now, and it’s only a matter of time until it gets to you or your company!
Website owners are being targeted and sued for a law they are unaware of . . .
It’s the ‘ADA’ act which requires businesses to make adaptations for people with disabilities in ALL their website content.
