Since the start of the pandemic, many companies have pivoted from daily office life to a work-from-home environment. At the same time, online shopping, both for necessities and indulgences, has become more common. How have these changes affected people? For some, the transition to a fully digitally connected life has posed challenges. For many people with disabilities, the shift to an increasingly online life has proven especially hard. One reason for this is the simple fact that most websites, mobile platforms, apps, and other digital media were not designed with accessibility features for those with disabilities. Equal access for all users is crucial in a digital world. At ADA Site Compliance, we provide the resources needed to ensure your digital presence is user-friendly for those with disabilities.

Common Problems that Prevent a Website or Digital Experience from being ADA Compliant.

There are dozens of different reasons why a website or app may be inaccessible for people with disabilities. Some of the most common problems include poor navigation, insufficient color contrast between text and background, and keyboard “traps” for non-mouse users. Websites must be structured properly with elements such as headings and labels, as well as a clear indication of interactive fields. An accessible website needs focus indicators to let users navigate with ease. These are just a few examples of accessibility barriers. To identify them all, however, companies must partner with a dedicated accessibility expert who will conduct a full website audit. There are other means to test for ADA compliance, such as online compliance tests, but most of these methods of testing have proven to identify only a percentage of discrepancies that prevent a site from reaching full compliance. Performing a full website audit will guarantee that any problem areas are identified, ensuring action can be taken to make the website fully compliant.
