What is ADA Website Compliance?
Offer Text Font/Size Alternatives
If your website includes graphics and videos that display pertinent information, you’ll need to include text alternatives for those that may not be able to effectively view the multimedia.
Offer a High Contrast Option
Individuals with visual impairments can often read a web page better if the contrast is high. You can design your website with this in mind, or offer an option for pages that can be viewed in higher contrast.
Include Keyboard Support
Not everyone will be able to use a mouse to navigate to different areas of the site and click on tabs. Keyboard support enables visitors to the site to move around the web page using keys on the keyboard.
Make Sure the HTML is Clean
Proper HTML utilizes meta descriptions, title tags, bulleted lists, and other components that ensure visually impaired individuals can easily locate items on the web pages, and that screen readers can efficiently locate and read content.
Offer a Simplified Version of Website
Understandably, you are proud of how your website looks, but offering a simplified version can make it easier for individuals with a variety of disabilities to easily find content and navigate the site. Simply separating the content into different sections in a basic layout can make things much easier for many.
Avoid Flashing Graphics
Flashing graphics or videos with flashing lights or images that move very rapidly can cause seizures in individuals with some disabilities or those that may be susceptible to the effects.
