The update comes in response to various U.S. courts ruling that the ADA applies to websites as “places of public accommodation” as well as physical locations, making it more essential than ever for businesses to make sure their websites are up to standard.
51 million Americans over the age of fifteen have a disability, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, of which at least 35 million require some form of website accommodation. 71% of users will simply leave a site that is not accessible to them.
ADA Access Granted provides business websites with a suite of accessibility tools that meet WCAG 2.0 specified conformance level AAA guidelines. These five tools come packaged into a single easy-to-install widget.
Text Reader reads the site’s textual content out loud for users who have difficulty reading or focusing attention. Keyboard Navigation ensures the site is fully navigable by keyboard for those who struggle with a computer mouse or who are visually disabled.
Blinks Blocking blocks animations that are potentially distracting for users who are learning disabled or cause photo-epileptic seizures in those who are prone to them.
Monochrome, Dark and Light Contrasts, and the Accessibility Toolbar all allow a user with visual impairment to alter a website’s color scheme and fonts for readability. Image Descriptions ensures all graphics have associated text clarifying their context and meaning.
A compliant site increases the length of time a user with disabilities spends on that site, which leads to a higher conversion rate. It also raises overall customer satisfaction. A business with an ADA-accessible website has a significant competitive edge over other companies that do not.
ADA Access Granted is a Certified ADA Compliant Software Partner. The service offers several levels of subscription plans for organizations of different sizes.
