Getting an Accessibility Audit is like Giving Your Business a Shield and a JetPack.

In the ever-evolving world of online commerce, communication, and engagement, operating a website that is not accessible to users with disabilities is a genuine problem.

Across the nation, plaintiffs’ law firms have identified non-compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as a lucrative vulnerability for online businesses, launching lawsuit after lawsuit at unwitting targets, sometimes striking the same business twice.

Key regulatory bodies are highlighting ADA-compliant digital accessibility as a primary goal and enforcing implementation of this civil rights standard through hefty fines.

Congress is poised to take additional action to codify the modern understanding that ADA compliance means ensuring accessibility online in the same way that businesses must in the brick-and-mortar world.

The good news is that it is really easy to get ADA-compliant, which shields you from the worst of the bad stuff and supercharges your advancement into the good stuff! All it takes is working with a company like Allyada to complete a digital accessibility audit of your website.

Let’s take a closer look.

What is An Accessibility Audit?

A digital accessibility audit is a comprehensive review and analysis of your website from the perspective of users with disabilities and in light of current regulatory standards, legal requirements, and tech advancements. Depending on the package you select, an audit identifies everything from critical errors on certain key web pages to comprehensive errors across your entire website.

Our experts perform the audit and prepare the report. Your designer can implement our suggestions to bring your website into compliance, or we can do it for you.

Does My Website Need One?

Yes! Every website needs an accessibility audit! The most recently published data on website accessibility confirmed that almost 100% of websites are non-compliant. Are we exaggerating? Nope. Slightly over 96% of the top 1 million websites do not meet the current standards established by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). The latter is a set of guidelines established to maintain global consistency for internet standards.

Though US-based businesses are not beholden to the WCAG, they are regulated under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which requires that businesses ensure equal access to all consumers. The WCAG standards are a critical guidepost for identifying key digital accessibility impediments under the ADA.

So, unless you’ve intentionally brought your website into compliance (usually because you’ve already been targeted with a lawsuit or fines), then the likelihood is that you need to.
