ADA Compliant WebsitesMarch 13, 2017
In the past two weeks we've heard more about ADA compliant websites. Managing one website to meet the standards is fairly easy assuming you can get a hold of your web developer and make the necessary changes. But if you are managing 100s if not 1000s how would you comply?
Under the nondiscrimination requirements of Title III of ADA - any business that is not a provide club need to comply. Websites should make sure all those with disabilities of sight, hearing of mobility have access to all sections of your website.
Some of the requirements are:
- Resizable Text with a high contrast mode
- Photos need to have text descriptions
- Videos should have transcripts
Here is a notice from the US Department of Justice dated April 29, 2016 -- Statement Regarding Rulemaking on Accessibility of Web Information and Services of State and Local Government Entities.
