Website ADA Compliance & Website Checker
ADA Compliance for Websites
A website that serves the public must be accessible to everyone. Equitable access is not only good business, but it’s the law. To have a commercial website that is not accessible to everyone can mean a costly lawsuit. Settlements for non-compliant websites cost businesses thousands of dollars.
Website Accessibility Guidelines, version 2.1 (WCAG) and Section 508 Guidelines from the Department of Justice are the standards for accessibility compliance. If your website was not built with these in mind, you are not compliant and at risk of a costly lawsuit.
What makes a website ADA compliant?
With the advent of awareness for the capabilities of every American, it matters now, more than ever, that your content is accessible to every person that uses the internet, regardless of physical capability. Web accessibility is just as important and crucial as good functioning. That’s where the Americans with Disabilities Act or ADA comes in. To have an ADA compliant website is just good business: making sure your website is completely within the ADA standards means you are free from any legal ramifications down the line.
To put it plainly, for your website to be ADA compliant, it needs to be accessible. But what does that mean?
Accessible in this context means that everyone, including people with disabilities, can get full usability out of your website in a way equal to all other users. That means they should be able to ‘effectively communicate’ with all the elements of your site: they can easily navigate between pages, all elements are engaging and effective, etc. Your site may be attractive, minimalist, or trendy, but is it readable? Does it communicate with all users? Will your transparent buttons pose accessibility issues down the line?
We are here to help you figure out all the moving parts of creating an ADA compliant website: we will provide evaluation and test for whether or not your web content meets all the ADA compliance guidelines before you take it online and give you the peace of mind you need.
Check your website for ADA Compliance
We as ADA Compliance Professionals believe that help you ensure your website serves the public right by being accessible to everyone. We recognize that equitable access is not only good business, but it’s the law. Web accessibility should be at the forefront of your web design. If it isn’t, that is where we come in.
While the internet continues to grow larger and larger every day, every business and service needs a website to get a good chunk of advertising. But how do you know your website is ready to be online? Is your website accessible? Do you meet all the guidelines set by the Americans with Disabilities Act?
ADA Website Compliance Checker / Website Testing
We also offer complimentary compliance tests for your website. We will run your complete website through our unique ADA Access software to verify the conditions. It’s unfortunate that many companies, keen to get into the ADA market as lawsuit threats continue to grow, tout such software as a comprehensive solution when the AI is only capable of catching approximately 40% of non-compliant issues. In order to truly ensure ADA compliance, you must have a live audit, in which a trained technician tests your website for all requirements
However, the software will give you a sense of what level of non-compliant severity your website has and the level of exposure for a lawsuit you are currently at risk of. Once we have tested your website, we will schedule a complimentary consultation in which we share our findings d discuss the next steps and possible solutions. If you are interested in a complimentary ADA website test, contact us today.

In the competitive ADA market, lots of other sites will offer a service to make a website ADA compliant that will try to attract customers with cutting edge software to run an ADA compliance audit for your website using AI checkers.

To guarantee that your website has true, total ADA compliance, we offer a Live Audit service.
With our Live Audits, a trained technician will work with you and will test your website to make sure it meets all the guidelines and is ADA compliant before you bring it online. We believe that the only way to guarantee that you meet ADA compliance as thoroughly as possible is to not only work with software and AI but to work with real people who can guide you through the process with a human eye and helping hand.

Running through the entire ADA Compliance Audit brings you through the process of working with software that will give you a preliminary check, just to give you and your technician a sense of what level of non-compliance your website is at, and even the level of exposure for a lawsuit you are currently at. Once you have been tested, you can then schedule a complimentary consultation in which we run through our findings with you, then discuss the next steps, and then together, we can go through the possible solutions. If this is a process that interests you- and you are interested in a complimentary website ADA compliance check, contact us today.

MANUAL WEBSITE AUDITS:
IF A HUMAN ISN’T TESTING YOUR WEBSITE, IT’S NOT ENOUGH:
It’s unfortunate that many companies, keen to get into the ADA, tout automated website scanning software as a solution, when the AI (Artificial Intelligence) is only capable of catching approximately 40% of non-compliant issues. In order to ensure ADA compliance, you must have a manual audit, in which a trained technician tests your website for all requirements.
A WEBSITE SCAN IS NEVER ENOUGH:
We offer complimentary website scans that utilize similar technology as other companies that charge for the service.
If other companies are asking you to pay for such automated solutions, why are we giving them away for free?
Such software scans only give a preliminary overview to what level of non-compliant severity your website has and the level of exposure for a lawsuit you are currently at risk of. While they help gain a preliminary sense of how severe and rampant the issues are, they in no way are a replacement for conducting a manual audit.
