Over the past six months, the topic of ADA compliance and website accessibility has dominated website-related conversations we’ve had with clients nationwide.
Banks and credit unions are under threat of potential litigation because their websites aren’t fully accessible by the disabled. Most logical people realize that this wasn’t intentional – banks and credit unions obviously want everyone to be able to use their websites.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines are comprised of a myriad of small recommendations. Each one makes your site work better for different assistive technologies used by the disabled. But you’ll likely find tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands, of items on your site that need to be reviewed individually to achieve your goal of meeting WCAG level AA accessibility. That can be a daunting task – especially since web accessibility isn’t even close to your primary job responsibility.
And, to make matters worse, even websites that launched a year ago may be considered a foul ball as they likely were not created to meet all of the web accessibility guidelines.
