Reduce risks of non-compliance and ensure digital assets meet ADA and WCAG standards.
What is the ADA?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) derives its authority from federal civil rights law, and it includes guidelines requiring information to be made available to all members of the public, regardless of their sensory disabilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act is supervised and enforced by the United States Department of Justice (DOJ).
A set of standards for accessible design was released by the Department of Justice (DOJ) in September 2010. The standards require that all electronic and information technologies be accessible to people with disabilities.
The ADA covers many rights for people with disabilities, but here we are referring only to regulations regarding document accessibility. It should be noted that none of the information provided here constitutes legal advice. Get legal advice if you are unsure about anything related to the ADA.
Title II: State and local governments
All local and state governments are required to comply with the ADA’s Title II: State and Local Governments. In Title II, all activities of State and local governments are covered, regardless of their size or the amount of Federal funding they receive.
Title III: Public accommodations
The Americans with Disabilities Act contains accessibility laws governing private and non-profit organizations under Title III: Public Accommodations and Commercial Facilities. All commercial and public entities with “places of public accommodation”, such as the internet, are subject to the standards.
