A few weeks ago, a small business where I’m a customer got a letter from an attorney threatening to sue them. Why?
Because their website isn’t ADA compliant.
So we’re reminding you again: Your website should be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. For several reasons:
- In New York and California especially, we’re seeing payouts of about $40,000 each on these claims. So you might save a substantial amount of money by making your website accessible
- You want everyone to be able to use your website, right? Everyone buys online — including people with vision issues, motor-function limitations, and other disabilities
- It’s the right thing to do. Just like accessibility ramps on sidewalks
If your website isn’t ADA-compliant, what can you do? You can start remediation with a simple plugin integration (which we can perform for you). Are your fonts large enough? Does your color contrast meet standards? We can perform on-site changes to help ensure that everyone can access your content and your products.
(While possibly helping to stave off a lawsuit.)
Here’s more about ADA compliance and how remediation works.
