ADA Website Accessibility
Compliance with current Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s good business. Accessibility provides a better experience for all users, improves search engine ranking, and may help mitigate ADA website compliance lawsuits. Separate from standard website maintenance, we offer additional programming that follows specifications recommended by Section 508 and WCAG 2.1 Level AA to assist visitors with disabilities.
NOTE: KMA will make best efforts to comply with specifications recommended by Section 508 and WCAG 2.1 Level AA. KMA is not a law firm and therefore cannot guarantee ADA compliance. If you are seeking legal advice you should consult a lawyer.
We have over two years of experience building new ADA websites and retrofitting existing websites for Florida Clerks of Court, Counties, colleges tourism clients, realtors and more.
