ADA Compliance: Summary


Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance:

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires state and local governments that receive program funding from the federal government to provide equal access to their programming for all individuals with disabilities unless the alteration of the programming would cause undue burden.

Our job as web developers and implementers is to make sure we also help out our fellow man and create fully accessible designs. Developers can use many techniques developed by both private and governmental organizations. For most websites, implementing these features will not be difficult at all and more than likely not change the appearance or layout of web pages.  These techniques make the webpages more user-friendly and usable by both older computers as well as the latest and greatest technologies. Below are some webpages that provide information on how to make your webpage ADA compliant. Also, we have other articles in our knowledge database.
