Is Your Website ADA Compliant?
Businesses are required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to make accommodations for people with disabilities. Website content, colors & navigation should be accessible to the blind, deaf, and those who must navigate by other assistive technologies like voice and screen readers.
Businesses that fall under ADA Title I or ADA Title III are required to develop a website that offers “reasonable accessibility” to people with disabilities.

What is ADA Complaince for Websites?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a set of laws that protect the rights of individuals with disabilities. These laws prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities in many areas of life, including employment, education, housing, transportation, and access to public places.
The ADA also includes requirements for businesses to make their facilities and services accessible to people with disabilities. This includes requirements for website accessibility.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) is responsible for enforcing the ADA. In 2010, the DOJ issued specific regulations for website accessibility. These regulations require that all websites must be accessible to people with disabilities.
There are many ways to make a website accessible. The most expensive way to do this is to hire a web developer who specializes in creating and maintaining accessible websites. The least expensive way is to add an ADA extension to your website that automatically keeps your website inclusive to all visitors.
If you are not sure if your website is accessible, you can contact the DOJ for more information. You can also visit the ADA website for more information about the laws and regulations.
