Digital ADA – The Benefits of Compliance and the Risks of Not Having an Accessible Website


If you have a website, you have a moral, and perhaps even a legal, obligation to make sure it can be used by as many people as possible. This includes people with disabilities. 

Recent court decisions have shown that even companies that are not obligated to meet web accessibility standards can be sued for failing to comply with Digital ADA. If you want to protect your company from potential lawsuits (while also better serving your site’s visitors), then you need to understand your obligations when it comes to Digital ADA Compliance.

During this one-hour webinar we will discuss the basics of website accessibility, the benefits of making your site usable for people with disabilities, and the financial and legal risks of failing to do so. Along the way we will identity some of the reasons your website may not be accessible, things you can do today to fix those problems, and how you can establish a long term strategy for Digital ADA Compliance.

Learning objectives, in this session we will cover:

Defining what Website Accessibility/Digital ADA Compliance is and why it is important for ALL websites
The risks of not having an accessible website, including legal ramifications
Examples of what makes a website inaccessible, including some actions you can take today to make your website more accessible
A path to becoming compliant on your website and maintaining it in the future
