What is ADA?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is the law that talks about accessibility. Title III of the ADA has been interpreted by U.S. courts to apply to websites even though there is no mention of the same explicitly. If the website is accessible, then only it can be considered to be eligible to be ADA compliant.
Web accessibility addresses the needs of every website visitor to achieve an optimal level of usability and ADA compliance. Many people browsing the web have a permanent disability (visual, mobility or neurological impairment), or a temporary impairment such as a broken arm, broken or lost eyeglasses, and so on. Many baby boomers have aging-related issues that make using the web more challenging, and they’re not alone – about 20% of the U.S. population has an identified disability.
The solution is to make the website ADA friendly, so that everyone, including persons with disabilities, can equally use your website, access content, navigate website successfully, engage with different elements, etc.
