If your website isn’t ADA compliant, your organization could be exposed to legal liability. Identifying ADA compliance issues is the easy part - fixing them is the real challenge.
That’s where we come in. We find out what's wrong with your website and have the resources to put those fixes in place.
What makes us different?
You can get an ADA compliance report from an automated system, but it only tells you what’s wrong based on obvious checkpoints. It takes a real person with real experience to dig deeper and find issues automated reports can miss. That level of personal attention makes a big difference.
Our team of front-end and back-end developers understand how to implement the changes needed to address your ADA compliance issues, whether you’re running a WordPress website or a custom .NET web application.
ADA Compliance Penalties
In 2019, Domino’s Pizza lost an appeal in the U.S. Supreme Court after being sued by a blind customer who couldn’t use screen-reading software to access the Domino’s website. Penalties for ADA Title III lawsuits can be costly: up to $55,000 for the first violation and $110,000 for subsequent violations.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Title III covers accessible technology, ensuring that websites conform with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
