Indeed, knowing the implications of being out of compliance can save you aggravation, time, and money. Continue reading to learn more about the top two most important reasons why you should automate this process.
About ADA Compliance
First, let’s back up a bit and discuss what it means to be ADA compliant. ADA compliance is short for the Americans with Disabilities Act Standards for Accessible Design. This is to say, that all electronic information and technology, such as websites, must be accessible to those with disabilities.
ADA Compliance focuses on providing accommodations for those with epilepsy, visual impairments, motor and mobility issues, and cognitive disorders. To clarify, visual impairments include users that are blind, color blind, have blurred vision, cataracts, and other visual challenges. Subsequently, some features that combat these challenges include font adjustments, color adjustments, animation control, content highlighting, audio muting and cognitive assistance.
Simply put, ADA compliance means making your website accessible for everyone, including the differently abled. Generally, websites must comply with a set of standards and are subject to legal action if they’re out of compliance. You can read more about ADA Compliant Websites, or continue reading for our top reasons why it is so important.
ADA Compliance & User-friendliness
To start with, making your website ADA compliant optimizes your website’s user experience and ease of access. Unquestionably, differently abled persons should have the same level of access to your website as anyone else. Not only is this inherently and ethically a moral truth, but it also ensures that all your potential customers have access to your products and services. According to the CDC, about one in four adults in the United States have some type of disability. That equals about 61 million adults in the US. Certainly, ensuring your business and website are accessible to a wider audience equates to more customers for you!
Be Proactive & Avoid Legal Issues
Secondly, it is important to realize that failing to comply with ADA guidelines could end up costing your business. In fact, the average out of court settlement on an ADA related lawsuit starts around $20,000. Consequently, website ADA compliance is a must when it comes to protecting your business against a lawsuit. And while compensation for damages can be substantial, there is also the added burden of immediate website compliance which is typically mandated within a matter of days. Thus, being proactive and automating your website ADA compliance now will help you avoid costly legal entanglements.
About Automated Website ADA Compliancy
Again, making your business website ADA compliant now is much more affordable than legal fees later. Additionally, letting the experts at NetSource help you can be much cheaper than trying to do it yourself on your site.
Moreover, our ADA compliance tool is perfect the solution. Our AI-powered software solution will not affect the default display of your website. However, it does automatically prompt an open screen reader for people who are blind or visually impaired. Similarly, it contains manual controls that are located on the sidebar of the website. Furthermore, people who require more accommodations can then customize the website display to suit their unique needs.
While maintaining ADA compliancy is an ongoing effort, our solution has AI technology that re-scans every 24 hours to keep your website compliant. This saves a ton of time in comparison to the strenuous undertaking of manual maintenance for compliance.
