Does Your Website Really Need To Be ADA Compliant?
Yes! Your website should be accessible to everyone in the first place, and the rules won’t change back any time soon, websites will need to be ADA compliant moving forward.
We may even see more stringent laws in the future, as many aspects of web design are only flagged as ADA warnings, not violations, so we could see a time when those warning turn into violations and hat must be fixed.
Why Your Website Needs to be ADA Compliant
Lawsuits aside, web design and digital marketing best practices moving forward will include ADA compliance, so more people can visit your website.
