Common Questions About ADA

What is ADA compliance for websites?

The short answer is yes, your website is considered a public accommodation by some. Therefore, it is required to meet some standards of ADA compliance.

ADA lawsuits concerning web accessibility have increased 177% since 2018 as more and more businesses land in civil court. However, the question remains and is debated, “do all websites have to be ADA compliant?”

Imagine you are visually impaired or hard of hearing and can’t use a website to book a doctor appointment or apply to a university. It’s important to note, ADA compliance is not just for those with permanent disabilities. For example, someone who has had surgery, rendering them temporarily disabled throughout recovery, must also be reasonably accommodated.
