Apparently, there are laws governing the accessibility of websites by individuals with disabilities. These laws mainly pertain to government-run websites, and such websites are required to accommodate individuals with disabilities. Now, lawsuits have been filed against non-governmental companies due to their non-compliance to the laws or otherwise not taking the steps necessary to provide equal access to Americans with disabilities. One example of accommodation is voice commands or navigation of a website with a mobile device.
- Lack of website accessibility, although not a legal requirement, is something you can get in legal trouble for.
- ADA lawsuits are something which can take place if a website is not accessible.
- There are a lot of ways to ensure that the website you create is easily accessed.
“The internet provides global access to information, stores, education, financial institutions, audio, and video, but often remains restricted or dependent on assistive devices for millions of people to gain unhindered access.”
