ADA Compliance Services

Websites that are fully accessible for all ability levels.

Understanding Accessibility

Your website is used by many people including those with disabilities.  These disabilities may include, but are not limited to:

  • blind or low vision
  • deaf or hard of hearing
  • physical disability
  • cognitive disability

Assistive technology

Individuals with disabilities use assistive technology ("AT") to help them understand the content on your web pages.  AT like screen readers and text-to-speech translate the words on the page and use a computerized voice to read the information aloud.  In order to be accessible, web pages and documents (Word, PDF, Video files, Audio files) must work in partnership with AT.  

All of the content added to your website must consider the compliance rules.  To learn more please visit Introduction to Web Accessibility.
