Making Your Website Accessible for Every User

Most means of communication are inherently ableist. You need to be able to see written content, so it’s inaccessible to the blind and visually impaired. You have to hear and see video content, so it’s inaccessible to the blind, visually impaired, deaf, and hard of hearing. You want to have a secure site, but those “I’m not a robot” tests can be difficult for individuals who are mobility impaired. We all want our businesses to be open and easily accessible for all, but it can feel like even the simplest aspect of your website can be problematic for some group of people. Don’t let all the little hang-ups get to you. Instead, partner with the iKonix Studios team. Our skilled professionals understand Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) website compliance, and we use our knowledge and experience to help our clients provide equal access to their online content for any user, avoid complaints, and access ADA tax incentives. We can help you create websites that meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and are dynamic enough to evolve to continue meeting the changing needs of end users.

Why Is ADA Compliance Important?

The most important reason to ensure your website is ADA compliant is the end user. All people, of any ability should have comparable access to online information and resources. ADA compliance is all about making sure any user can easily access the information on your website. Whether that’s achieved by presenting information in different formats, using adaptive technologies, or through other means, an ADA compliant website equally accessible for every person. When we work to create a more accessible world, we’re breaking down barriers for people with different abilities and working toward a truly equal and inclusive online environment.
In addition to creating equally accessible content, failure to create online content that meets ADA guidelines can result in complaints from potential clients. In some areas, legal action has even been threatened. No one wants that for their business. If the potential for negative consequences aren’t enough to motivate you to work toward website ADA compliance, how about a tax benefit? Many businesses are eligible for tax incentives if they take steps to achieve and maintain website ADA compliance.

What Does it Mean to Have an ADA Compliant Website?

Many of us know what it means for a business establishment to be ADA compliant and accessible. Things like ramps at access points, wide doorways, brail on signage, and other accessibility modifications have been increasingly incorporated into building designs over the last several decades. When it comes to the online environment, many of us are less aware of what elements make a website accessible or inaccessible. In order to address the growing need for ADA compliance standards that can be applied to online environments, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) developed the WCAG as the standard for web designers and developers who want to make online content more accessible to all. Whether you’re looking to create a new ADA compliant website or you want to bring your existing site into compliance, the iKonix Studios team can help you create a website that meets or exceeds all WCAG standards.

Why Should I Work with iKonix Studios to Create an ADA Compliant Website?

While the standards set forth in the WCAG are meant to be clear and allow for just about anyone to bring their website into ADA compliance, there are many complicating factors that can easily go unnoticed without the right technological expertise and user testing to ensure continued compliance with all standards. If you’re ready to find out more, give the iKonix Studios team a call today.
