Legal Precedent Has Implications For ALL Website OwnersThe first high profile ADA lawsuit was with the large grocery store chain, Winn Dixie. Their content was not accessible to screen readers, meaning anyone visually impaired could not order from their website. They fought the case, but ultimately lost. This began a tidal wave of lawsuits across the country. In 2017, there were over 800 federal cases alone, and this is only the beginning. Congress has been trying to stem the tide of these lawsuits, but it could be a while before they get to a resolution. In the meantime, all website owners need to audit their site and take steps to become ADA compliant.
How Do You Know if Your Website is ADA Compliant?Step one is to run a scan of your website. ADA compliance violations are tricky to spot, especially if you're not a website developer. Even armed with the proper tools it can be tough to make sense of information presented. That's why you need an experienced team of developers to assist you in wading through some of the more technical aspects of the ADA rules.
What if Your Website Isn't ADA Compliant?If your scan indicates your website is out of compliance, then you'll need to take the steps to correct all of the issues listed. Some of the most important issues to address will be found in the WCAG 1.0 and 2.0 protocols, as well as Section 508.
