What in the Web Accessibility?!

In 2023, there was an increase in ADA digital accessibility lawsuits, with a total of 4,605 reported cases. This represented a 14.1% rise from the 4,035 cases reported in 2022, marking a notable surge in ADA digital accessibility lawsuits.

What is Web Accessibility?

Web Accessibility, guided by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), is about designing and maintaining your website to ensure it’s accessible to individuals with disabilities, including those with cognitive, auditory, and visual impairments. Making your website accessible means that all users, regardless of their physical or cognitive abilities, can access, navigate, and interact with your web content effectively.

What Does “Being Compliant” Mean?

Being compliant with web accessibility standards means that your website meets or exceeds the WCAG guidelines, ensuring that people with disabilities can use it with ease. This includes providing:

  • Alternative text for images and videos to aid those using screen readers.
  • Compatibility with screen reading software, removing barriers that prevent access to website content.
  • Sufficient color contrast to ensure that text and background colors can be distinguished by individuals with visual impairments.
  • The ability to modify text size, enhancing readability for users with varying visual abilities.
  • Options for users to adjust colors and contrast to meet their visual needs.
  • Keyboard navigation options, allowing users who cannot use a mouse to navigate the website.
  • Clearly described links and buttons, ensuring users understand where each link will take them and what each button does.
