Navigating the world of ADA website design development can feel like a maze, especially if you’ve just dipped your toes into the subject of ADA accessibility. You’re probably wondering, “What’s the next step?”
Here at David Taylor Digital, we don’t just have web designers; we have web design superheroes. Our team is well-versed in the intricacies of ADA compliance, ensuring that your website is not only functional but also visually appealing.
We get it—ADA guidelines can feel like a hot potato that you’d rather not hold. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), the foundation of ADA laws for websites, can be a complex and lengthy document to navigate. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed about which rules you’re following and which ones you might be inadvertently overlooking.
However, unlike a hot potato, ADA compliance isn’t something you can set aside to deal with later. The clock is ticking, and the risks of inaction could be financially and reputationally damaging for your business.
While web design and web development are parts of our service, becoming ADA compliant doesn’t necessarily mean your entire website has to be changed. If you’re using a modern design template, you may find that you already meet many of the requirements already.
Our job is to assess your existing website and make recommendations to improve its accessibility. Then, we carry out those recommendations to your satisfaction.
This may mean that we have to improve the coding of your site and make adjustments and tweaks until it satisfies the ADA criteria. A redesign may be necessary, however, if you’re using outdated or defunct software and tools to run your website.
Each of our clients is unique. The changes we make for websites depend on the current setup and how closely it satisfies ADA requirements. Our ADA web design service includes a look at the following factors, and your website may need a few or more of these functions to get up to standard.
An alternative to adjusting your existing website is to create another site with full accessibility functions available. Our ADA web development service can recreate any website but ensure it conforms fully to ADA requirements for those who need them. This means that you won’t have to compromise on your existing design or layout.
All you’d need to do is add a clear link on the existing site to direct users to the more accessible version.
The law for ADA web design came into force fully in 2018. That means that you can be sued for failing to provide an accessible website and for discriminating against those with disabilities.
While you may think it’s possible to get away with not making any adjustments to your website, you’ll be taking a gamble. Businesses do face lawsuits and fines for not being accessible.
Navigating the intricate landscape of ADA website design development can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be.
