Traditional techniques for building accessibility requirements into a website can be extremely time and labor intensive, potentially translating to thousands of dollars and weeks of coding. Retrofitting an existing site can be just as costly. Plus, maintaining compliance means manual updates every time new content is added to the site.

Businesses all over the world are facing lawsuits due to non compliance with ADA Title III Website Accessibility. From small mom and pop bicycle sites to worldwide brands like Domino's and everyone in between.

Federal & Civil Fines!

"...in a 2019 interview with the New York Law Journal, Joseph Mizrahi of Brooklyn-based law firm Cohen & Mizrahi, a leading New York firm in bringing website-accessibility suits, defended the need for the tide of litigation.

“We have many clients and over the course of their lives they have visited many websites that they cannot access, and they want to enjoy the internet just like anybody else does,” he said in the interview.

The ADA statute “allows for attorney fees, [and] there is a lot of work that goes into preparing, litigating and monitoring compliance,” he also said. Then he asked rhetorically, “So which attorney is going to work for free?” ~Law.com

 

 

What is ADA Website Compliance?

The American Disabilities Act was set forth in 1990 and required businesses and other public spaces to make accommodations for those with disabilities. You’re familiar with things like wheelchair ramps and handicapped parking spaces; these are things you see every day and have become a standard in today’s public world.

It was long debated as to whether the web was considered a “public space,” and now, we certainly can consider it so, as many courts are ruling in favor of the plaintiff in web compliance cases. Hence, there are standards that websites must meet for those with disabilities to access and use them properly.

 

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0 and 2.1)

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines – WCAG – were put in place to help guide website owners and creators to build their websites with compliance in mind. Within those guidelines, there are new “releases” every so often as technology for disabled individuals continues to improve.

WCAG 2.0 is probably a term you’ve heard before and it was the latest “acceptable” set of guidelines to refer to. In June 2018, WCAG 2.1 was released, but there aren’t many differences between the two updates.

Within WCAG 2.0, there are also “levels” of acceptability for ADA website compliance:

  • A = below acceptable
  • AA = standard (and where you want to be)
  • AAA = exceptional

WCAG 2.0 AA is the standard on which most website owners are operating and is considered acceptable.

How much does compliance cost?

Typical costs to bring a small website to compliance is out of reach for most companies.  One typical remediation company published..." A website with around 20-30 pages could cost anywhere from $5,000 – $10,000 to audit and complete work for".
