What Are ADA Standards?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a set of standards that outline the requirements for access to public and private websites. The ADA encourages businesses, organizations, and individuals to make their websites accessible to people with disabilities. This includes those who are blind, deaf, or have other physical or mental impairments.
An accessible website is one that can be navigated by persons with disabilities without difficulty. It must meet certain criteria such as being keyboard-navigable, providing alternatives for any non-text content, having consistent page titles and headings throughout the site, using descriptive link text instead of generic ones like “click here” and providing transcripts for audio files.
To ensure that a website meets ADA standards it must be tested using automated tools such as WAVE accessibility evaluation tool which will provide an overview of potential problems in the code so they can be fixed before launch. Additionally manual testing should be done by someone knowledgeable about web accessibility issues to identify any further issues.
Creating Equal Opportunities
The importance of making websites accessible cannot be overstated; not only does it put your company in compliance with the law but it also allows more people access to your services or products regardless of their abilities or disability status. This helps create equal opportunities for everyone while creating a more inclusive internet experience overall.
