Accessibility and ADA Compliance

Accessibility and ADA Compliance
Web Accessibility means that websites, tools, and technologies are designed and developed so that people with disabilities can use them. How your website is accessed using the current assistive technology must be one of your fundamental design considerations.

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international community that develops open standards to ensure the long-term growth of the Web.

Through the W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 document was created to provide a wide range of recommendations for making web content more accessible.

Following these guidelines will make content more accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities, including accommodations for blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity, and combinations of these, and some accommodation for learning disabilities and cognitive limitations.

The guidelines are organized around the following four principles, which lay the foundation necessary for anyone to access and use web content. Accessibility requires web content that is Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, and Robust. These requirements include (but are not limited to):

  check  Text Alternatives for All Non-Text Content
  check  Alternatives for Time-Based Media
  check  Background and Foreground Color Contrast
  check  All Functions Operable by Keyboard
  check  Provide Enough Time to Read Content
  check  No Content Known to Case Seizures
  check  Use Simpler Ways to Provide Content
  check  Consistent Navigation on All Web Pages
  check  Web Pages Operate in Predictable Ways
  check  Text Content is Readable and Understandable
  check  Compatibility With Assistive Technologies
  check  Extensive Conformance Testing
