What is ADA compliance?

The Americans with Disabilities Act was instituted in 1990 in an effort to end discrimination based on differing abilities.  Drawing heavily from the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964, which established protection against discrimination based on race, religion, sex or national origin.  The ADA went a step further by requiring organizations to provide "reasonable accommodations" to employees with disabilities. 

What happens if your website is not ADA compliant? 

Unfortunately, if your website isn't ADA accessible, you are liable. 
A lawsuit could be filed against your company if people with disabilities cannot access or use your site.  Even if your business didn't intend to discriminate or exclude people with disabilities from visiting or using your website.  You could pay thousands of dollars in lawsuits.

Supreme Court Rules ADA
Protections Apply to Websites

In light of the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals recent ruling holding that the ADA protects access not just to restaurants and stores but also to the websites and apps of those businesses, web accessibility is no longer optional. If your website isn’t already accessible—so people with disabilities of hearing, movement, sight, and cognitive ability can use it—making it accessible is essential in your 2020 digital strategy.

If your business falls under the physical ADA law such as stores, restaurants, hotels, movie theaters, museums, and doctor’s offices, etc. It now falls under the website accessibility law as an extension of the business.
All businesses with 15 and more employees!
All other businesses currently fall under the Human Rights Act, which stipulates any person deserves access to public venues, and all websites are public. So even if you're a sole proprietor in the service sector, you can easily get sued.

"Increases the amount of users you can service. 71% of web users with a disability will simply leave a website that is not accessible to them"

According to a report from the U.S. Census Bureau, 51 million people in the US aged 15 and older have a disability:

19.9 million have difficulty lifting or grasping, impacting use of a mouse or keyboard; and

8.1 million have a visual disability; they might rely on a screen magnifier or a screen reader, or might have a form of color blindness.

The Census Bureau also reports that 7.6 million have a hearing disability; they might rely on transcripts and/or captions for audio and video media.

By making digital content accessible, your organization can reach more customers, increase customer satisfaction, and gain a competitive edge over those who don’t include accessibility
