ADA Compliance for websitesYour Website Can Be ADA Compliant

VRG Web Design has teamed up with the several employment and disability discrimination lawyers in Massachusetts to help ensure that our clients’ websites meet all the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and adhere as closely as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1).
VRG utilizes AI for Screen-reader optimization and Keyboard navigation optimization as well as ensuring Browser and assistive technology compatibility

There are many benefits to ADA compliance, but the most critical is that your website and business will not be vulnerable to a law suit by predatory lawyers or someone with a disability who does not have equal access to your website.  In addition, Google has publicly stated  W3C standards will effect SEO rankings.  Finally, by ensuring your site is accessible to all potential customers, your business will not loose profit from people who may not be able to use your site due to a disability such as being blind, deaf,or are epileptic users.

Just a partial list of some of the issues that need to be addressed on any businesses website are:

  1. Font adjustments- users can increase and decrease its size, change its family (type), adjust the spacing, alignment, line height, and more.
  2. Color adjustments- users can select various color contrast profiles such as light, dark, inverted and monochrome. Additionally, users can swap color schemes of titles, texts, and backgrounds, with over 7 different coloring options.
  3. Animations – epileptic users can stop all running animations with the click of a button. Animations controlled by the interface include videos, GIFs and CSS flashing transitions.
  4. Content highlighting – users can choose to emphasize important elements such as links and titles. They can also choose to highlight focused or hovered elements only.
  5. Audio muting – users with hearing devices may experience headaches or other issues due to automatic audio playing. This option lets users mute the entire website instantly.
  6. Cognitive disorders – we utilize a search engine that is linked to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, allowing people with cognitive disorders to decipher meanings of phrases, initials, slang, and others.
  7. Additional functions – we provide users the option to change cursor color and size, use a printing mode, enable a virtual keyboard and many other functions.
