Many of our clients come to us when they have been sued for non-compliance. And while we are happy to help them remediate their sites, they still face the legal costs of defending the suit or settling out of court. So doesn’t it make sense to do a risk assessment to understand your website’s exposure? We will review your website, assess its web accessibility, and offer suggestions to improve compliance.
Can you be sued if your website is not ADA compliant?
Over the past several years, a steady stream of legal rulings requiring website compliance has proven that ADA applies to online venues. In addition, thousands of ADA lawsuits were filed in 2021, and tens of thousands of demand letters show that plaintiffs are capitalizing on this legal prerogative.
According to ADA title III, every business website has to be accessible to people with disabilities, or they will be at risk of being sued and facing unnecessary legal expenses. We recommend using our AI and machine learning web accessibility solution to solve this problem. According to our research, this is the most affordable and simple solution in the market today.
Business owners can learn an important lesson here when the ADA requires “reasonable modifications” to accommodate the disabled. If the technology exists to restructure an online tool and make it accessible, businesses are obligated to do so.
The consultation is free, there is no obligation, and you are welcome to take our assessment and implement them elsewhere. Though, of course, we would love the opportunity to be of assistance.
Our service provides:
- ADA, WCAG 2.1 Level AA& Section 508 compliance.
- An accessibility statement and certification of performance.
- Ongoing maintenance involves a re-scan of your website every 24 hours.
One in four folks has a disability that impacts their ability to interact with standards websites. As a business owner, you spend considerable time and effort building websites, hiring SEO agencies, paying for AdWords, and promoting your brand. After all of that, why would you prevent 25% of your potential customers from accessing your site? It just doesn’t make sense.
Our job is to help you ensure that everyone has access to your site. And in this day and age, it is pretty easy and inexpensive to offer the necessary tools to accommodate the needs of all your visitors. But, of course, we are talking pricing that starts at $49 a month. So, after all the investments (both time and money) you’ve made in your brand and creating brand awareness – doesn’t it make sense to make sure your site is accessible to ALL your visitors?
What is Web Accessibility?
Web accessibility is essentially a set of rules, behaviors, code standards, and design guidelines created by the W3C and are called the WCAG 2.1. The WCAG 2.1 is a massive 1,000-page guidebook that encapsulates a range of disabilities that hinder internet use to make internet use impossible without adjustments. This spectrum comprises 20-25% of the general population, depending on if we’re going with the CDC or WHO.
There are many disabilities covered, and the primary categories that require attention are:
- blind people using screen-readers,
- the motor-impaired using only the keyboard to navigate,
- epilepsy, color blindness,
- cognitive and learning disabilities,
- visual impairments, and more.
Our accessibility tool is an AI-powered machine-learning software that was developed with the understanding that successfully automating the process creates a simple, immediate, affordable, and compliant solution that serves as a win-win for the business owner and people
with disabilities, who want equal access to the internet.
