This newly launched free ADA website compliance audit will help companies understand what needs to change in their website to reach over one billion disabled consumers worldwide. This is 15% of the world’s population.
The Americans with Disability Act (ADA) was passed in 1990. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the public.
Before the ADA was passed, no one was legally required to have wheelchair ramps or door access buttons, assistive vision or hearing devices, braille in elevators, or other accommodations that are regularly seen today.
Since so much of business is transacted online now, websites also need to become ADA-compliant. Although it is not yet a federal requirement, businesses are being actively pursued in costly lawsuits pertaining to website ADA non-compliance – making professional ADA optimization essential.
The agency’s services will allow businesses to see significant increases in conversion rate. A disabled person who is struggling to complete an e-commerce transaction will often abandon the attempt. 82% of customers with accessibility needs say they would spend more time on websites with basic accommodations.
Updating the company website to be ADA-compliant will help customers and clients with disabilities apply for work, shop in e-commerce, read the news, and many other activities that able people take for granted.
The iShazz Agency can assist with these updates, offering complete feature implementation to ensure that the site content is accessible to users with disabilities.
Some accommodations that should be seen on a compliant website include TTS (reading aloud), the option for a black and white display, magnification, text spacing and sizing, link and cursor highlighting, and font adjustments.
These options not only help those with stated disabilities, but they also help the aging population whose vision may be failing. These accessibility options also help tired workers who stare at screens all day. ADA-compliance may also raise a website’s Google ranking.
