Adhering to ADA website regulations just got easier

If you are a business owner with a website, you want to keep your content as up to date and secure as possible, without impeding access for current and prospective customers. Part of keeping it up to date means that you need to have your website available to everyone, including those with disabilities.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was originally signed into law in 1990, decades before the internet went mainstream. In 2018, the Department of Justice determined that websites also need to comply, so anyone with vision or hearing impairments could have access as well. Not complying can lead to lawsuits.

You’re probably thinking this is an expensive and time-consuming undertaking, and you may be willing to take your chances. Did you know that there are attorneys and claimants that are making a business out of looking for non-compliant websites and suing? Business owners that don’t have compliant websites may end up paying off the defendants to avoid expensive lawsuits.
