To ensure your site can be enjoyed by the widest possible audience, maintaining ADA compliance is essential. For many organizations, it’s the law!
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires certain organizations to make accommodations for people with disabilities. Your content should be accessible to the blind, deaf, and those who must navigate by voice, screen readers or other assistive technologies.
Watch out for these common errors that cause noncompliance:
- Poor contrast between your text and backgound
- Using scrolling text banners
- Not using ALT-tags or descriptive captions on images
- Embedding videos without subtitles
You also need to be mindful of these issues on sites you link to from your site and the documents you upload.
