New Web Compliance Rules Could Impact Your Business in a Big Way

New rulings from the Department of Justice state that websites should be designed so they are accessible to individuals who have vision, hearing, and physical disabilities. But what does this mean for you and your website?

 

Cincinnati, OH – January 11, 2018 – Is your website “accessible” under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)? With the rules and regulations set forth, many businesses across the US are finding that their sites do not comply with the government’s guidelines.

Legal precedent is changing, and requires nearly all public websites to provide enhanced accessibility for disabled users by the end of January 2018. Not complying with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines could end in an expensive lawsuit.

However, updating your website to conform with the guidelines will keep you in the clear, meaning your users will have a better browsing experience, and you won’t be bogged down in attorney fees. The regulations range from high-level, complex changes, all the way down to minor edits.

We work tirelessly to help our clients maintain and improve their online presence. After spending weeks familiarizing ourselves on the new regulations, we have developed a comprehensive audit that will enhance the way you conduct business online.

At Zoozler, we want to ensure that the internet is accessible to everyone, regardless of circumstance. In order to help you comply with the ADA regulations, our experienced developers begin by checking your website(s) for WCAG 2.0 compliance by using a variety of software, and manual testing to establish an accurate assessment of the work necessary. We provide free, cost-friendly estimates and lay out a roadmap so you can fully understand our processes and timeline. The work will be completed by our in-house team and fully conform to the success criteria.
