What are you waiting for?
When will YOUR industry be next? As seen in this New York Times article, people and their attorneys are actively looking for websites to test and then sue if they are not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
This time lawyer and plaintiff teams have focused on suing art galleries for inaccessible websites. They have presented these lawsuits in a systematic way, first suing galleries with names that begin with the letter 'A', then moving quickly onto the 'B's' and so forth.
Many PD/GO clients have opted to work with our technical team to make their website content accessible to ALL of their users as well as avoid a costly lawsuit.
Without knowing which industry will be under scrutiny next, it is a safe bet to bring your website in compliance now. Our team has the expertise to build a website that is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
A website is not “accessible” if it contains content that cannot be accessed by users who are blind, have low vision or are deaf. A website or mobile app needs to be coded in such a way that makes it compatible with screen readers often used by the blind such as JAWS, NVDA, and VoiceOver. This coding, along with many other factors, makes a website compliant.
For a free consultation and to test if your business website is ADA compliant, please reach out to PD/GO at 888.354.4946 x1.
