The Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA, prohibits any organization that does business with the public from discriminating against individuals with disabilities.
Digital accessibility is critical and being ADA-compliant means making your website, apps, PDF documents, and other technologies accessible to people with disabilities. Web content should be accessible to blind users, deaf users and those who must navigate by voice, screen readers or other assistive technologies.
Intellicom has expertise helping our customers meet ADA Guidelines
Intellicom helps our customers navigate the 60+ guidelines to identify and make necessary changes to ensure a compliant website.
Here are a few examples of changes that might be required in order to make your website compliant:
- Text Alternatives – Provide alternatives for non-text content (e.g., images) so that it can be accessed by impaired individuals.
- Adaptability – Create content that can be presented in different ways without losing information or structure.
- Distinguishability – Make it easy for users to see and hear content, including separating foreground and background, by using readable fonts, larger font sizes, and highlighted link styling for example.
- Keyboard Accessibility – Make all functionality available from a keyboard.
- Timing – Provide enough time for users to read and use content.
- Navigability – Provide multiple ways to allow users to navigate content including obvious/prominent links and other techniques.
- Readability – Make text content readable and understandable via styling and other techniques.
- Support for Assistive Technologies – such as screen readers for people with visual impairments.
