In 2010, the United States Department of Justice released specific guidelines for all public organizations to follow to become accessible to all people with disabilities. That includes all disabled people that use computers and smart devices.
To put it simply, an ADA (Americans With Disability Act) compliant website is a website, everyone can use. It should be built in such a way where people with disabilities are able to access or surf your website, thereby creating a win-win for everyone. Needless to say, the more accessible your website is, all the more traffic your site receives eventually growing your business.
Does my website have to be ADA Compliant?
If you are running a business with at least 15 full-time staff, and you are operational at least 20 weeks every year, you will need to comply with the Act. The WWWC (World-Wide-Web-Consortium) has guidelines for Web-Content Accessibility that tells you how to design your website so people with certain disabilities can access it. Websites are such that people across the globe use it so the likelihood of a person with disabilities to use it is also very high. To take care of this the consortium laid down four principles, let us understand them:
Perceivable: Entire content should be perceivable by any specially-abled person (we choose to use this term instead of disability), it can be related to sight or sound. So the best way to go about it is by asking yourself if someone was colorblind or has other visual issues, how can they access your website or what if someone unable to hear wants to access your website, how will they do it. Well, it does not mean your website must have the ability to convert all text to voice and vise-e-versa, it simply means your website should have the built-in technology to convert text to voice or voice to text.
Operable: You need to assess the way people use and access your website, is there any limitation of usage, for example, is it a must to have a keyboard or mouse to access it. If the answer is yes then you need to think of alternative solutions like making it mobile-friendly or creating an app.
Understandable: Your website needs to be easy to navigate, the content of your website should be easy to understand and logically placed, surfing a structured website, with well-written content that is concise enhances your chances of getting more visitors. Moreover, a good website creates trust and loyalty among users. It is recommended that your website content should be simple and neutral that is understandable by people who are specially-abled as well.
Robust: Your website should be compatible with all versions and types of browsers, even all types of operating systems. People who do not have access to the latest technology should also be able to access your website. Well having said that, your website needs not be compatible with stone-age technology, however, it is recommended that the website should be compatible with the technology that is from a few years back.
