ADA Compliance for Websites
What is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?
The Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA, is a law passed by Congress in 1990 and is the nation’s first comprehensive civil rights law addressing the needs of people with disabilities. The ADA prohibits discrimination of people with disabilities in employment, public services, public accommodations, and telecommunications.
Is Your Website ADA Compliant?
The ADA has a wide scope and applies to state and local government, public and private spaces, employment, building codes, transportation, and telecommunication. Title III of the ADA mandates that all businesses open to the public are legally required to remove any “access barriers” that would hinder a disabled person’s access to that business’s goods or services.
The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) provides that web content should be accessible to the blind, deaf, and those who must navigate websites by voice, screen readers, or other assistive technologies.
