Website Accessibility | ADA Compliance by Thrive Web Designs
Whether you’re a small business or a large corporation, according to the law, your website needs to be ADA compliant. If your website isn’t currently ADA compliant, your company is at risk of a possible lawsuit and you could be losing business as well.
What is ADA Compliance?
ADA stands for the American Disabilities Act and in 2010, the U.S. Department of Justice released its Standards of Accessible Design. These standards outline how companies should maintain their websites so that people with disabilities can access and use the website.
ADA Compliance is complicated. Thrive can help.
While ADA compliance is a complicated topic, making your website doesn’t have to be. We have an automated solution through AccessiBe that uses AI to make and keep your site ADA compliant. After we install it on your site, it’s all automated and you don’t have to worry about it. Contact us today to get started with AccessiBe (generally $450/year) or if you have accessibility questions.
What does ADA Compliance actually mean for your business and your website?
Unless you specifically paid for your site to be ADA compliant, your website is probably not accessible, meaning that it’s a challenge for someone with disabilities to use, especially the blind. Depending on when and how your website was made, it could be completely unusable to them. Even though you may have just heard about this, it is still your responsibility to make sure your website is accessible to all internet users.
That’s where we come in. We know you want to be proactive and you want your company to grow and serve all your customers. We also know you want to avoid the risk of a possible lawsuit for not being in compliance. That’s why we’ve partnered with AccessiBe to make it easy for you to be compliant and make your website more usable and accessible to your visitors!
