IS YOUR WEBSITE ACCESSIBLE?
About 42.5 million people in the United States have disabilities, according to 2021 Census Bureau data. That includes people with hearing, vision, cognitive, walking, self-care or independent living difficulties. Is your website accessible to them?
Creating Access for Everyone
Not all websites are required to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The following types of organizations are mandated by law to comply:
- State and local government organizations
- Private organizations with 15 employees or more
- Places of business that are considered a place of public accommodation and those that work for the public benefit, such as restaurants, public transportation, schools, healthcare providers, gyms, grocery stores and more
Even if it’s not required for your organization, having an ADA-compliant website is important for providing a positive experience for all users. If your site is not accessible, you’ll miss out on traffic and business from the 25 percent of Americans who have a disability.
Website accessibility addresses a range of impairments, including visual, auditory, motor and cognitive and speech. It impacts page design, images, video and media, animations, text, navigation and more.
