Our ADA Website Compliance Service, which we offer through our Web Compliance Pro subsidiary, has become an important part of our service offerings. The number of people with disabilities increases daily, and they want to enjoy their life just like everyone else. Most websites do not allow that enjoyment to extend to the Internet, and so people with limited abilities cannot enjoy the web as more able people can. That also means that business owners are losing potential customers who can’t do business with them the way most of us do -- through their websites.
The Department of Justice has never modified the ADA, but in 2018 they issued an opinion stating that the Americans with Disabilities Act applies to websites. In October 2019 the Supreme Court supported the DOJ's opinion by refusing to hear an appeal of a lower court ruling favoring a blind person who couldn’t order a pizza from the Domino's Pizza website.
This will unleash a torrent of opportunist attorneys looking to make a quick buck (usually tens of thousands of dollars) at the expense of small business owners like you. In fact, it's already started.
Every Year, More Companies Are Sued for Website ADA Issues
For the last several years, the number of lawsuits regarding websites that were not accessible by people with disabilities have increased almost 40x -- up from 57 in 2015 to over 2,250 in 2018. And that doesn’t count the number of demand letters from attorneys threatening lawsuits that resulted in out of court settlements and huge ADA-mandated attorneys’ fees.
Why Make Your Website ADA Compliant
We developed our Website ADA Compliance Service for three reasons.
- To benefit those with disabilities by helping them get as much use and enjoyment as possible from the websites they want to visit or do business with.
- To benefit businesses by maximizing their revenue from their customers who might otherwise not be able to contact them or buy their services.
- To help protect businesses from expensive lawsuits related to ADA compliance of their websites.
ADA compliance is a matter of degrees. There are hundreds of elements in the Website Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and it is very difficult to satisfy them all, regardless of who built the website or how they built it. That's why we built our Website ADA Compliance service to use the most advanced artificial intelligence tools, and then supplement that with precision manual website programming to make your website as compliant as possible.
Why Our “Intelligent Accessibility Compliance System” Is Better
With our Intelligent Accessibility Compliance System™, we start by using our Artificial Intelligence-based remediation system to analyze your site and do as much of the work as possible. And, since no automatic tool can fully emulate a live human, we put our manual remediation team to work to handle any issues that might remain. The result is the lowest up-front cost and the longest lasting accessibility remediation possible.
