Web Accessibility Tip of the Month

Web Accessibility - Tip of the MonthOffered as a service from the WebAIM website, Maine CITE provides the following “tip” on how to make your website more accessible to all people.

ADA Compliant?

We often hear the term “ADA compliant” in relation to web accessibility. While it has been clarified than an inaccessible web site can be considered discriminatory under the Americans with Disabilities Act, there are not yet technical specifications for what that means. So, it’s difficult to know if a web site meets the ADA. However, nearly all lawsuits and complaints under the ADA have referenced the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Level A and AA as the desired measure of accessibility.
