Complying with the guidelines set by the American Disabilities Act (ADA) govern a lot of local establishments ranging from small businesses, restaurants and churches to large, multi-state corporations. But did know that ADA compliance applies to online businesses as well?
Online ADA Compliance
Any business that owns and operates a website needs to be compliant with ADA standards. And when it comes to the web, these standards are defined by a handful of things including image alt tags, screen-reader friendly colors, fonts that are large enough to be read and giving users the option to make adjustments on the fly. These adjustments may include highlighting links on a page, changing the page’s colors to grayscale or increasing the contrast, and of course, being able to zoom in on various elements of a site.
