One in five Americans has a disability. Without an ADA-compliant website, you could potentially be losing out on one-fifth of your market and risk legal consequences. Ensure equal access to all by avoiding these three common mistakes with ADA website compliance:
1. Not Performing Website Audits
You can’t fix a problem if you don’t know it exists or where it exists! ADA website compliance audits will let you know the accessibility pitfalls in your current website. It’s important not only to perform automatic assessments but also manual assessments to ensure you don’t miss any errors.
2. Not Monitoring for ADA Guidance Updates
Just as your company is always evolving, so are the ADA compliance guidelines. That’s why it’s so important to conduct audits regularly and not treat your website’s ADA compliance as a one-time fix. The ADA updates a best practices toolkit to help you stay up-to-date on how the nondiscrimination requirements of Title II of the ADA apply to state and local government websites.
3. Trying To Manage ADA Website Compliance In-House
Trying to understand the ins and outs of ADA compliance and how to update your website accordingly is not only time-consuming but also takes you away from doing what you do best, running your business. Investing in a digital marketing agency to help with ADA website compliance audits will free up your time and the headache of trying to figure out how to make changes to best comply with the guidelines.
