Many of the legal cases are being filed under a few anti-discrimination laws,one of which is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Since we are not attorneys, and the ADA is a law, we are not in a position to advise you on any area of the law. So, not ADA compliantwe will not offer to make your website ADA compliant. We are specialists in Web Accessibility. We design and remediate to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) which are also referenced in several Court cases as the potential solution to follow to meet Accessibility compliance.

YEARS OF COMMITMENT AND DEDICATION TO INCLUSIVE DESIGN

owl representing educationWe have been educating on Web Accessibility for the past 5 years. Our specialty in Web Accessibility includes gaining education from the leaders in Web Accessibility field, testing and remediating websites, speaking with attorneys who are involved in legal cases pertaining to Accessibility, speaking to businesses about the VALUE of an Accessible website, presenting at small business events and at web designer education events.  We consult with other designers to make their clients websites better.  We educate and train do-it-yourselfers with hands-on workshops on Accessibility.

We are available for presentations, custom workshops and consulting on Web Accessibility. The more we work together, the more Accessible the web will be for all. Accessibility is necessary for some and a benefit to all.

Automated Scan Tools:

For your own understanding, there are a few automated tools that can scan your website and give you a visual of potential errors. Automated scan tools will tell you that they are not always 100% and sometimes return false positives. No automated tool can provide a guaranteed results, however, it is a good place for you to start.

We have no affiliation with the following company or their tool, however, we have found it to be one of the most useful and the results are easy to understand. WAVE is a web accessibility evaluation tool developed by WebAIM.org. Go to their page and put your URL in the “Web page address” field.

This automated too will NOT identify ALL the errors in your site. It's a good start, but not all that you need. We use a few different automated tools, as well as native user testing for a deep analysis of your website. Simply dusting the surface is not sufficient for compliance with Accessibility.
