ADA Website Accessibility (WCAG) Compliance
Miami, Orlando, Los Angeles

The Americans with Disabilities Act (also known as ADA) is a comprehensive civil rights law that was enacted in 1990 to protect individuals with disabilities from discrimination. This requires businesses and organizations that serve the public to provide reasonable accommodations to employees and people who have vision or hearing impairments, or learning, cognitive, and other disabilities.

In 2016, the ADA introduced Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and began including web presence as part of this practice. This means websites now have to follow a compliance checklist to meet one of three WCAG ADA compliance requirements. This includes desktop and mobile devices. While this is a fairly new requirement, lawsuits have been on the rise, with approximately 751 lawsuits having been filed against businesses regarding ADA compliance.

The most notable case being Winn Dixie, a supermarket chain in Florida. Despite revamping its website in 2016, Winn-Dixie neglected to include design considerations for users with disabilities. It resulted in the chain being fined $100k.
