The Americans with Disabilities Act was passed in 1990. At that time, websites were not considered a part of the act. In fact, there were no websites for businesses until after August 1991. Since that time, we estimate over 1.6 Billion websites developed and are currently online. For someone with disabilities, finding a website that is compliant with their needs may be a challenge when it shouldn’t be. Litigation is at an unprecedented high over this issue; large companies are being fined, and no one is immune to the repercussions.
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) have been developed through the W3C process in cooperation with individuals and organizations around the world, with the goal of providing a single, shared standard for web content accessibility to meet the needs of individuals, organizations, and governments, internationally. Finding the right web design company that is familiar with the standards sounds straightforward, but may not be. The standards are listed, but how do you check to see if your website is compliant or not? Salterra Web Design and SEO have taken into consideration how your website is perceived, how it operates, its navigation, and how it is understood – all from the WCAG 2.1 standard. We approach all sites with standards such as this in mind.
